    So I am building an amp based around a 5e3 but more modern sounding. I have much of it worked out but am still finalizing how I will do the PI. I have been looking at the Paul C Mod and the 1Meg Grid Stopper. I have used the latter in a previous build and really liked it. I will be giving the PaulC Mod a shot for this next one but am curious if I should use the 1Meg Grid stopper as well as this is still a Cathodyne PI. I keep searching around the different forums but all I get is info that I already have on one or the other, but not both together.

    Thanks in advance!

    I can't see that one should preclude / impact on the other, so no reason not to do both.
    It's pretty quick to check it out all ways.

    Sounds good, i'll give it a shot with both. I was planning on at least using one if the 2, I just didn't know if the use of the PaulC mod made the grid stopper not necessary.
