discuss inputcap switch/pot

lots of people use an input cap switch with fuzz faces, rangemasters...

but then there is the setup with 2  caps and a pot inbetween like the deluxe bazz fuss.

how do these 2 systems compare and is there an advantage in using one or the other?

with it at the input wire [that goes to the BPSwitch] is very easy and requires only an SPST to go across the offboard cap.

  One makes it easy to dial in [the pot method] the other is very easy to impliment, on or off the board.
