Title: Removing the 5K pot?
Post by: theburge0318 on May 29, 2007, 12:23:01 AM
If I were to remove the 5K pot would the pedal run at full blast all the time or would I need to sub in different values in the rest of the circuit to give it boost?

if you want a resistance of 500k (in place of the pot wide open), then just use a 500k resistor in place.  :)

Ah!  ;D  So simple... thanks for the heads up.

I still need to integrate the 47uf cap (currently attached to the pot), would I not?

sure, itll go in series/parallel with the resistor.  8)
