I have a chance to buy one of the handwired series 100w SLs that has been sent to VooDoo for their "plexi" mod's. This is called the "Jose" mod and includes an added MV. The amp comes with a bag full of caps and resistors that were changed out. My question is this...how much of a difference do all of these mod's make? Is the standard, as issued amp basically just as good sounding? I've never played one of these HW series amps, so all I have to go on is this one, with the mod's. The amp sounds fabulous and the MV does tame it somewhat, but if you really want "the" tone it still needs to be cranked up pretty loud. It's tone compares very favorably with my original '68 100w plexi.
