Crybaby GCB-95 buffer ?
Hello !  
 
 
 
This is the first time I post a message. I'm a french student so, please, excuse my mistakes...  
 
 
 
I have 2 questions:  
 
1) On the very interesting Justin Philpott site, I found the GCB-95 but I looked in mine and it seems there is a 2M2 resistor in parallel with the 22pf condensator in the buffer stage. Is this correct ?  
 
 
 
2) Could anyone explain me WHY this #$%! buffer sucks all the treble? I have written some (problably wrong ...) formulas and even at 10kHz, omitting the .01uF cap, the input impedance is 418k. Seems like a quite good buffer . Good enough to keep my treble. So WHY is this buffer so bad??? I think R.G.'s mod with a JFET should work but I want to understand why the stock buffer is not good enough.  
 
 
 
Thank you  
 
 
 
I'd like to thank all those wonderful people who created those excellent sites (GEO,AMZ,...)
