Nice. His problem seems to be limited space tho...no room for an extra tube.

Yeah that can be a problem.
But that is why I built this as a stand alone unit.
I used a large chassis and will some day put it in a smaller enclosure but,
I currently have two Dumble style amps, a 50w and 100w so this way I can use the loop with either one.

I have a TC Electronics G Sharp effects unit that sits on top and it handles the delay and reverb duties and then I also have a pedal board with the amp foot switch for overdrive and boost, a modulation pedal, chorus, tremolo, a EHX Stereo Delay, then back to the loop.
It all works very good together.
Some guys like simplicity, some like to fiddle with knobs.
I like to be able to dial in the tone I want without sacrifice.

hmm a valve effects loop separate to the amp? i like that idea, i think i might make that another project to do. thank you all very much for your help, though for this amp, i think il go with the voltage divider at the cathode follower and then a MOSFET recovery stage to the tone stack, until i have built the effects loop unit that is

You know Metro Amps has a Mosfet FX loop that apparently works very well for SS.
A little expensive but a lot of the Marshall guys like it.
