Adding a gate...
« on: January 09, 2018, 08:19:25 PM »
Gudday all,

I'm building a Triple wreck, but I want to include a gate.  I've built the 1knob gate that I've used before, but should I put it after the master volume, or, straight off the output of the circuit before the volume pot?  I imagine the latter would be more set and forget.

Try it? See which you like best.

Personally I'm of the opinion that all dirt circuits should have a noise gate. One that you can bypass when not needed. Saves you the hassle of having to include additional noise gate pedals on your board.
