    Interesting. It appears Fender has addressed this problem in recent times. Last year a customer brought me his brand new reissue Princeton - he wanted to go 12" and already bought the baffle for it....

    Just ran across this type of MV as a factory install on a rare Risson amp the other day. FWIW it was on the 'other side' of the grid stop resistors, away from the grids. If it sounds good, go for it....

    There are plenty of "old school" wahs around with no built in buffer. True bypass can help in the cases where there is no external buffer, and the guitar's output is loaded down by the wah circuit's...

    Other way 'round. Run it on one pair of 6L6, one speaker, that should be OK. Except ... it will likely still be "too loud." So, there are speaker attenuators you want to avoid... Triode wiring for...

    I'd start simple - just a big resistor. Remember it's a good idea to provide some heat sink. Those Dale & similar gold-anodized hi tech looking resistors are just fine, and you can get 'em at...

    I've seen a similar Sano, where one of the 8" speakers carried reverb only, and the 15" and other 8" handled the dry signal, with a resistor - 10 ohms IIRC - in series with the dry 8. Seems they...

    I'm pretty sure that 'low loss base' pertains to radio transmitter use. Unless there's something very unusual about that Ceria amp I doubt it will make any difference at all.

    I don't see why not, both fuse and grounding. If you were to convert the amp to guitar use, who would think twice about it? Of course there may be some real Hammond expert out there who can fill us...

    Your plans all look good to me. Ordinarily I'd avoid going over 50 uF on a 5U4, but there's a nice resistor in the way before the current hits the cap, plus you're only looking at 320V, so I wouldn't...
