    You can still get clean tones out of it by rolling off the volume or pick attack. Volume doesn't even have to decrease much either. Just got done with a practice session.

    I grounded all my DC separate from my AC grounds. Heaters in area of all sockets twisted and up off the chassis. Quiet as a mouse. Keep ground leads short.

    I know about 8 mos have passed but just wanted to comment on the 5V 2A vs 3 A PT. 3 A allows use of 5U4, 5Y3 or Gz34 a feature worth keeping.
