OK these things have hit the shores for a few months now, so some of you amp geniuses have figured out how to add a presence control or a master volume, right?

So lets hear any ideas on the Marshall Class5. I'm not even sure that the single ended amps have a negative feedback circuit where you could replace a resistor with a pot for a presence control, but has anyone sussed this out yet?

By the way, foam or felt on the chassis and new tubes are great ideas to handle the rattle, but I don't think you guys would consider those "mods."

I'm beginning to think that the BillM mod kits for my Blues Jr. has created a monster in me for amp tweaking...

I like the way it sounds already,don't think there is much to mod.as far as putting a master on it,it would take away what it is.Maybe something like VVR curcuit would be cool.Maybe someone else may have some ideas.I'm gonna pick one up after I recoop from the holidayz.I think the only mods I'll be doing will be speaker wise.To me it's a heck of a good sounding amp as is,ymmv.

Be careful about the speaker depth, there's not much room in there. By the way the stock speaker has plenty of low and and sounds pretty nice.

I would definitely like to see an MV on this amp or possibly attenuation, power scaling, etc... it would be a no brainer for a home only player like me at that price point.

It is a loud little sob for sure.

I was thinking about a switchable master for home practice and the only thing holding me back is where to put the pot. Could do dual ganged pot I guess. Not crazy about in-line attenutators especially since I just about dime this thing, I dont like to risk smoking it.

I was thinking a dedicated external 1x12 with one of those Emi FDM speakers. I like the idea of throwing away efficiency mechanically rather than electronically
