Author Topic: What pot to use on my bass guitar with an onboard compressor module?  (Read 637 times)

I installed an on-board compressor module on my bass guitar. My bass guitar has passive humbucking pickups but an active EQ circuit. I'm currently using 250k push/pull pot with a dpdt switch to run this compressor module. I also have it wired for true bypass. I'm not sure whether I should be using a 250k, a 500k, or a 25k pot since I'm using passive humbucking pickups but an active EQ circuit. The compressor module is connected after the active EQ circuit. Prior to using the 250k pot, I was using a 50k pot but I couldn't hear any of the effect when engaged. With the 250k pot I can hear the effect somewhat but it's still not as pronounced as I think it should be. Any thoughts?

What's the compressor circuit?  Need some more details...

And you might consider reposting in the main "Building..." subforum.  This isn't really digital nor DSP.  :D

Thanks. I'll repost in the correct forum. I'm brand new. This is my first post. Anyway, it's a Lee Jackson creamy compressor module.

No problem.  And I should have said: "welcome!"  (We're a friendly bunch, really...  ;D)
