I prefer a delay pedal with independent level controls for dry signal and wet signal, or mix.
I have some delays with only a mix control, and when you turn up the delay the dry part of your signal gets a little lost.
I use the Cusack Tap-a-Delay that has level and mix controls.
Every retailer does this, not just Sweetwater, and not just music instruments. The MSRP (Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price) is from Marshall not Sweetwater. Your criticism of Sweetwater in particular is unfounded.
This has been hashed and re-hashed a hundred thousand times on TDPRI. Listen to @Wally - but since that's just my opinion, YMMV. :) But Wally is right. In my opinion.
Also - personally, I'd just seek some 8 ohm speakers to make the correct match for the amp to sound best.
That strat is wired with the so-called '50's wiring mod' which I personally like. It has no tone control for the middle pup. To add that to the neck pup tone pot, connect the black dot on the only unused switch terminal to the red wire next to it going to the neck tone pot.
I have a small 20" by 9" pedal board with 10 pedals crammed on it. I appreciate being able to toggle reverb and tremolo with just a tiny footswitch - and it sounds great..
BTW< there is a tremolo on the board too, but it is usually set to "harmonic tremolo " cause it sounds so good, but also...
Are you sure about that (underlined)?
I thought the footswitch when "closed" grounds the reverb signal and the circuit is normally "open"
OP is unclear, but you definitely need a 'latching' footswitch which on that site is called the "Dual Channel Basher"
I think "OPEN" would be reverb...
The Solaris Fuzz project is the ultimate clone of the Dallas-Arbiter Fuzz Face, one of the most ubiquitous effects in the DIY and boutique effect landscape. While the original Fuzz Face is a very simple circuit, many modifications have been made in the nearly 50 years since it...
