    Hello everyone. I just started my vacation here in Knoxville, TN. Its kinda in the middle of a Heat wave/rain. It's over 90 degrees with a heat index of 100 with humidity. Anyway, I'm trying to replace the radiator in my car but I keep getting rained out during the middle of the day. So I'm going inside to build my last Little Gem for a friend. I've already build a couple and you can check them out at http://www.youtube.com/nikteller

    One Question I have is do you think there is a way to split the signal before the 220 uf cap and have a switch to go to 220 cap and a much higher one and make a sorta Bass/Guitar amp depending on which one it's set to?

    I'm guessing a DPDT switch or would I need something else... Sorry I'm kinda a noob at this.

    Thanks

    Yeah that is very easy to do. All you need is a SPST switch (On On) and two different value caps. I drew up a little layout that should help.
