Volume roll-off = high-end roll-off ?? Possible solution!

I was doing some lunchtime reading today and came across an article that talks about placing a .001uf cap accross the volume pot and it helps to ensure volume roll-off does not mean tone roll-off.
Anyone ever try this?

Volume Roll Off

Postby Laytonco » Tue Mar 14, 2006 4:24 pm

Never heard of this but I am VERY ineterested in what you find. My Alembic has filters so I keep the tone. But my Schecter Semi-Hollow does lose tone when I roll off the volume.

i know that capacitor's play a big part in an amp and pedal tone-stack's and even your guitar. that value will work, but will have some roll off of the bass as the volume is lowered and accentuate the high end. so this may be a tone change, but in your favor. :cool:

oh yeah if you don't get enough highs, try a 100 picofarads. that's what they used to use in tele's




peace,

Thanks Waldo. Think that will work with passive EMGs?

as long as you have no active circuitry for the pickups. it should work fine.
