i have built a 1974X and love it. i am almost done with the JTM45, i just need to get a new rectifier tube, the copper cap bullshit that weber sells is blown. just need to do that and i may have a short. but its basically done, i just need to sit down and do it.

i am learning more and more, and getting more experience, and know how to work safe and not fry myself.

i have two questions that yes a could search for and possibly find, but dynamic knowledge is more helpful than static knowledge.

1. how would i add an extra gain stage? specifically on a vintage amp, i am aware i need an extra tube, but where would it go into the circuit. this sounds dumb, but would that require more caps or resistors, or a different transformer to handle the additional tube? if you could give an example i would appreciate it. if the example is a diagram that is fine, i can read schematics decently, but am not able to evaluate with a quick glimpse of the paper.

2. on a two channel amp, generally what is shared and not shared. i think i know part of that, but i am not sure and would like confermation. i am thinking that if it has different tone controls its more of a ___idk____ amps that if the knobs are shared is more of it the same just with a different amount of gain for the OD?

the more detail the better, thanks in advance, and if you have any links in addition to the ones in the sticky please let me know.
