    I followed the Ceriatone grounding scheme as on the layout, with the star ground, and also used an aluminum sheet as a shield as shown. The amp has exceptionally low hum and is the quietest of any...

    The schematic and layout you posted is not a Ceriatone, and is significantly different. I used the Ceriatone layout on my Dizzy 30 and had no problems. Ceriatone doesn’t offer a schematic but you can...

    On the M13, don’t be surprised if the schematic doesn’t match the amp exactly. On my M13A, I found significant changes, even though the amp appeared to be original from the factory. It had the...

    I have one of those necklace reverbs from a PR-40 tone cab. Is there any reason to use the necklace reverb over the conventional stretched spring tank for a guitar amp? Like I need another project.

    Yes, and Hammond has the patents on the spring reverb. They used to make them in house and then started up the Gibbs company to make them.

    DCR measurements are 177 ohm output, and 173 ohm input.

    I don’t have an M10, but I do have an M13a. The M13a also uses a 12AU7 to drive the reverb tank. I’ll measure the impedance of my tank and post the findings.

    You can reduce the permeability of the screw by changing the microstructure of the steel. Large grains with a fully annealed and softened structure will have the highest permeability. Any cold work...

    I had an Ampeg Dan Armstrong guitar many years ago, and it was designed so you could just plug in different voiced pickups. Maybe that idea needs to be revisited?

    But can’t you just easily charge Alnico magnets by using Neodymium magnets? Lots of videos on YouTube demonstrate how easy and inexpensive to charge or discharge Alnico magnet pickups.

    Hate to bring more bad news, but according to Shuguang, their EL34B tubes are tetrodes, not pentodes.
    Their EL34A was a pentode, but was discontinued, likely because of problems with reliability.
