CB-1. They got my name next to the 2, but I use the 1. . .

Some interesting stuff following that CAE Sound link ... eventually, you get to a Youtube video with Warren Haynes talking about his signature Les Paul.

It has the CB-2 in it, and Haynes sez, "when the buffer's on, you can lower the volume on the guitar without changing the tone." But he has a switch installed on there, to shut the buffer on or off?

kimock and i believe sless use the the same thing on there scott walker guitars. i believe scott and cutler came up with it. it has a dual ganged 25k/500k or 250k with a switch. it allows for buffered and unbuffered output(hi z & lo z output). some effects work well without a buffer like a fuzz.

Darn germanium! :lol:

Some wahs, too.

What does Jerry tone mean to you? Copying Jerry slavishly? Honoring Jer's music no particular way but our own?
We're each of us unique. And also the same. Can we open our hearts and minds to both?
