Maybe you should consider using J2 and modifying the range from +3, 0 -3 to something else. (+4, 0 -4?)

It should be relatively click-less that way.

That was plan B when I realised plan A was stupid (switching gain on MC board) and If you switch in a parallel resistance that gives you what you need. I'm just having a risk averse moment as, come next year I will need a visa to go and fix it! He is known to change cartridges 2 or 3 times an evening.

I don;t like throwing away gain but sometime you have to be pragmatic.

Not so much a client as a friend. I figured having someone to encourage me would accelerate the completion of my set as well*. He's paying for the parts and labour will be bartered for some spare cartridges he has.

*At least that was the theory. Life has a way of getting in the way :)
