Agreed. Mine goes temporarily insane and tries to blow speakers. Or it could be the gain pot I guess. Both are marked for death. Now to find a vintage Alembic...waldo041 wrote:I have noted before that a GGG blaster performs different then an original Blaster circuit.
On the topic at hand, I select buffer or blaster, pre-OBEL, via a DPDT switch, as I don't want an LED on my guitar. Or at least not one that anyone but I can see. When I put my buffer/blaster(Milobender first suggested the either/or setup to me, thanks, man!) guitar together I wasn't concerned with passive operation. Seemed to me that if I wanted a passive signal, then a second, dedicated passive guitar would be the best solution anyway.
