Capacitor to ground question
« on: October 10, 2020, 08:33:03 AM »
Hey All,

I've been looking st a few hours shots of pete cornishes pedal board.

He had a TRS connector

It looks like he connects a capacitor to ground, on pin 3 (screen)
Earth to pedal on pin 2 (ring)
And hot on pin 1 (tip)

What is the capacitor there for, and any idea of value?


On the inputs he also puts a resistor between tip and ground on the Jack, again I'm not sure what this is doing.

Thanks

Baz

hello
a common thing i notice and struggle to understand, i found this on basic search "capacitor to ground"

https://electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/52482/what-is-the-purpose-of-a-capacitor-to-ground#:~:text=The%20capacitors%20to%20ground%20form,low%2Dimpedance%20path%20to%20GND.

do you have a schematic or pic of the pedal. pete cornish does a few things to his pedals that seem more involved than other regular brands. i heard that all he does is fit a pre-existing pedal inside a more robust box.
