    What I want to do:
    • Change power tube sockets to 6v6
    • apply SLO mods
    • covert amp into standalone head with knobs on the face of head
    • remove reverb and repurpose reverb knob
    • Add a variable gain cut with seperate volume when on activated(similar to V33's clean "channel"
    What I already know how to do:
    • change amp into stanalone head
    • Do the resistor swaps and other things associated with SLO mods
    • Change PCB parts over to P2P(necessary to change tube socket type)
    What I need help on:
    Gain cut circuit, removing reverb parts, using the reverb knob for a separate "clean" volume control.

    Thanks!
    Would it be possible to use the send and return jacks from the reverb as an effects loop?(using RCA->1/4" jack adapters)

    I do not see the point of using send, as it would do the same thing as the line out, it would just have one more op amp buffer to go through.

    Yes the recovery can be reconfigured as a FX return. I am going to guess that the gain would need to be lowered and that you would want none or different frequency shaping.
