Re: Small Stone color switch
I built myself a little box (actually a wah pedal housing) with a SmStone in it. I wired it up exactly as it had been, and from what I learned the half of the "color" switch that isn't involved in the feedback slows the sweep down when the regen. is increased. It may change the waveshape as well, I didn't scope it out. I replaced the 100K resistor on the switch (for regen) with a pot. This allows some color mixing... Also, this is one of those wonderful 70s dinosaurs that eats a bit of your signal when "on" to balance levels between "engaged" and "tone suck" (bypass.) Found that out when I threw a DPDT in there.
