Many people here tend to prefer the sound using only 1000uF caps. In my case, I found that my gainclone was lacking a bit of bass to my taste so I added 4 X 10 000uF I had on hand which improved a lot the bass response.
If you use small transformers because it cheaper, or because you already had them, of course 1000uf won't do.
It will have big voltage variations while the music is playing.
What you probably did was use a small transformer and add caps.
Exactly what most hi-fi brands do, because it's cheaper.
I use a 24V, 384VA toroid and 1000uf caps (bypassed with 0.1uf) and the bass performance is impressive.

I'm using 500VA 2x25V transformer. However, I'm not using 0.1uF but I don't think this is why 'm lacking a bit of bass
