Aiken amp as JayWalker link;

Proper orientation of the capacitors will make the amplifier much less susceptible to outside noise, including hum, interference from fluorescent lighting, and tendency towards oscillations or frequency-response peaks and dips due to unwanted feedback from nearby signals within the amplifier, which can affect the tone of the amplifier (and is the reason why some people claim the amp sounds different if the caps are oriented in the opposite way - if there is no accidental coupling, there will be no tonal difference, but there will still be a noise benefit gained from orienting the caps the correct way).

I have finished all the work on my amp. I replaced all the bias caps and plate resistors and replaced the Duranite caps and a couple others. I also replaced some resistors whose values were way out of range.The amp now sounds tremendous! Future work will include a better (small head cabinet and a reverb tank. Thank you for all your help!
