I'm not 100% on whether I still have them but I've done them for a customer and if we're being honest, it is a mod for mod's sake ... no real improvement where you're like "oh well you've GOT to do this"

For anyone else reading this in the future ... you can't turn a sow's ear into a silk purse. You might make the blues/hot rod series of amps sound less like they do but you aren't going to make one a classic Fender amp. If this were just my opinion then other threads about all these mods on just about any worthy forum wouldn't read the same.

I thought master volume mod from fromel was more transparent than the fx loop method

For the most part, mods on an amp rarely make the amp sound better. Different, yes, but rarely better. The established amp companies have tried just about every possible combination to get the best sound out of an amp. Just about every amp that has come out after 1980 is just a rehash of something prior. Stick to the classics, you can't get much better... Spend money on lessons.
As for your Fender, gut the amp and build a classic design into the cab/chassis. Forget the master volume, they make amps sound worse.
Happy building!

I agree, if you gotta do all this stuff just to make it sound decent then why not just get rid of it and get what you actually want.

I think you just want to give an opinion with your best intention and I appreciate that with your knowledge you let me know that it is not worth to mod it.

Anyway, for those of us who can't afford the amp we want, it's fun to try these mods to get closer to big ones and learn about how a circuit works.

I know this hoarder type with a house full of shitty amps (shopahol is an addictive drug) that he wanted modded to sound better and, for a while, I did the work including the amp in question ... eventually I told him to stop bringing me this stuff, get over the cost of it, and buy a silverface twin reverb ... I don't know whether he took my advice or not because he quit reaching out to me for work ... which is fine because if I had to watch another Uncle Doug or Brad the Guitologist video of some shitbox amp from the 60s I was going to claw my eyes out and puncture my eardrums for good measure

I´m saving money to build one fender blackface amp.

I know this amps is not very good but I used it for years and I enjoy it moding while saving for the next one!
