|Fuzzboxfive||building a varible tone capacitor|
Has anyone here ever tried to build a tone
cap switch ? i'm new at the fx building,
and was wondering what is the best way
I'd like to make this to use in pre-distortion
unit before my ts-9 and possibly in a fuzzface.
any ideas guys??? thanks Rick

Usually we find that the stock input cap is too small, so the most common question is "how do I increase the bass in my ..." Here's a simplified drawing showing the stock cap (pictured in orange) on the circuit board and the new, bigger cap (pictured in blue; try 10uf for massive hugeness), and the potentiometer (100k should do for most applications, I guess) you'll use to dial in just the right amount of "fatness."
