Hello. long time lurker, first time poster... I just recently completed my first build; the monotone GA-5 ki. Now I’m planning on building a 6G15 reverb clone using an old Epiphone valve jr head that I have. I have a question related to the dry signal path in the schematic (https://el34world.com/Hoffman/files/Hoffman_6G15.pdf), specifically the value of R17 of 100k. I’m thinking that it would be possible to change values of resistors and caps around V2B and add some “drive/dirt” to the dry path (variable)? I’m not looking to add a ton of distortion but maybe to drive that tube stage a bit harder for use as preamp. What would be the best option? Maybe this is a stupid idea? In that case let me know! Thanks!
