I've been looking at these from a few different locations, especially the tone stack mod, and the twin mod.
But i was wondering if A, it would actually work, and B if there was any schematics or whatever online to save me buying one, and not using the rest of it!

It's not going to work if you just buy the parts yourself because the whole point of the mod is that you're using the high quality electronic components included in the kit. And no doubt you will try to save money by buying caps and such that aren't actually much better than the ones included in the amp. Have you actually done any amp or indeed electronics modifications before? If not then i suggest you start with something simpler before you start on your amp that's worth hundreds of pounds.

yeah i gathered that, but i only wanna do a couple of the mods, and there are four or five in the kit.
the ones that i wanna do it says its only a jumper wire between two points so it can't be that hard.
but it would be better to take it to someone who knows what they're doing lol

Sprague Orange Drop caps and Silver Mica caps are only about $1 each.

You can get all the parts from TAD and probably save some money:

EDIT:

Here's a schematic for you:

If you know what you're doing (which I hope you do) have fun. These amps do have potential, but there are so many cheap parts to be replaced to reach that.

I'd consider replacing those Illinois Filter caps as well. Some are rated for 350v and are being hit with nearly 450v.
