Re: Favourite Fender Master Volume Circuit
I'm with Rick on this....if you simply must have a master volume and you're using a blackface style circuit, a post PI master volume is definitely the way to go. If you are putting the master before the PI, then you will definitely need to add a gain stage and do some mods to the circuit in order to get a decent distortion sound. Otherwise you won't have any usable distortion at all. If you just want moderate distortion, forget the master volume and get a power attenuator.
