Thanks MB - I'll definitely look at lowering C4.

I already have 1N34A's in there right now (not the BAT41's); I thought about getting some of the BAT41's, but would that LESSEN the gain that I have now?
The BAT41's look more like 1N914's; do they sound any different than 1N34A's?

Also, other than changing the drive pot, is there any other way to increase gain just a smidge?

Thanks for your time,

Tech Help - Projects Page / Serendipity: more treble?
« on: June 10, 2010, 08:08:53 AM »
I wired/boxed up my Serendipity last night and REALLY like the sound of it. It gets VERY close to the sound I was getting out of my Jetter Gold (which is what I was hoping it would do); smooth, midrangey lead sounds, pinch harmonics happening a little too. It doesn't have as much gain on tap as the gold, but I'd like to swap out the 500k gain pot for a 1M and see if that will do it.
I think with some more gain and treble, it could (potentially) be a Mesa Mark I in a box. Total jazz-fusion/Santana leads going on.

And about the treble - I have to max out the voice and almost the tone control to get the bite I'd like. Almost all of the treble is at the end of the taper.
Is there any way to increase that in this circuit? I'd like a little more 'play' in the tone control - maybe should use a Lin pot instead of Log?

You just made my week.....

Tech Help - Projects Page / Mysterioso Jr. Boost footswitch wiring

How/where would you wire up a footswitch to be able to switch the boost on/off?
I'm assuming this would also include the 'MID'-toggle part of the circuit, so I'm not sure where to bypass the boost section.
