Re-capping is so cool. In a way, your amp is perhaps even better then when new because electrolytic cap's of today are superior in performance to those back then.
The ultimate feeling was remebering how the 2100 sounded the day it arrived from ebay and using jumpered back fueling two e-120-8's and 67 twin jer custom pot/cap modded tone stack with one jbl reverb linked. Then with the help from waldo's site I modded the driver cards(big diff) and found another guide on the net explaining the crucial list of caps on the two main styles of Mc boards and regardeless of usuage. It's age period plus yes SMS the new cap materials nowadays.
Whole cap changing job cost me under 30bucks.
WE I PLUGGED THIS BABY IN I THINK I FINGER PICKED THE FIRST CHORD AND HAD TO SIT DOWN IN SHOCK THE MASSIVE CHANGE IN CLARITY AND RICHNESS. Very hard to describe. No other change in setup except the cap replacements I mentioned.
My setup is simple....Gibson SG routed front n back...dimarz dp104's,waldos TPC-1,fx loop,67 fender twin jer modded tone stack,mc2100 jer mods(except banana jacks),two e120's one wet with orig fender spring tank and one dry. rebuilt original mutron3,mxr phase100,orig ds-1,mxr ana delay,pups all activatable any time in either of 3modes and magneticly and wired in phase with custom piezo/sds-1 bridge pup(cripe tone)
ps I suck at drawing schemes but like to add some of the pot/cap mods jer used on his twins to share
