    I'm thinking about changing my 87 svt back to the 12DW7 spec.. anyone done this? Is it worth doing?

    Also, which resistors need swapping out?

    YES it is ABSOLUTELY worth it if you NEED that GROWL!

    If you spent the loot on the head however... be sure you know what you are doing... aka I am 100% not responsible for your actions given the information below.

    Replace V1 with a 12DW7 (when you find one!!! ;-)

    Then swap R6 to 47k from 220k and R25 to 1.5k from 4.7k

    Good luck!

    They're in current production, and the JJ one sounds pretty darn good, IMO.
