    I believe the tonefiend article has rediscovered the Big Muff tone control.

    Things are getting too complicated. I'm down with the "Remove it if you don't use" approach.

    Been using small snubber caps for years to tailor the high end in various pickups. Same idea as a Varitone but smaller values.

    Love tonefiend.
    Gibson EB-0 bass used a .01 as the smaller cap and .033 as the larger one ('60s) or .02 ('70s).

    Gibson Varitones also use an inductor in conjunction with the caps to tune various midrange notches, it's not just different rolloff caps.

    being dyslexic and modular synth without front panel label showing the patch cords was to put in terms that won't get me banded or a 60 suspension is , can I say problematic? and that is axiomatic!

    there are expensive control modules for the floor-board-riders that can take everything that's not being used out of the signal flow. pedals can be run in series, parallel and at this point in the review demo

    that's a new one for me , consent being the key component in that circuit. I'm going to put it in the book of things not forget.
