Re: humble clone
    The presence control on many Humble clones is a bit weird... I just barely crack it open and it sounds like a "regular" pc set to 4 or 5... If I turn it up to 4 or 5 the sound is way too bright.  
    On the design I used the feedback resistor is 4k7, the presense control is 2k, the cap is a 1.0uF tantalum and the cap and pot is bypassed with a 390 ohm resistor. (The OT has a single 4 ohm tap, although I use an 8 ohm cab.)  
    Any suggestions on modifying the presence circuit so that a setting of 5 would be equivalent to a current setting of 1?

P.S. To the Dutch Guy... I just noticed your post last night and was going to tell you about these controls being very bright but it was time to log off... :(  
    BTW your English is better than many people who were born in America! I'd sure hate to have to post messages in the Spanish I studied in grade school ("Hola, Isabel! Como esta?") Good luck with your project!
