Hey Guys, Not novel, but I’ve been getting into building boards for guitar control/tone applications. This is an example. The Bourns A500k below hosts a front board wired to make the pot a Volume(Down)/Tone(Up) application. The board on the side is a Fender style Treble Bleed with my favorite combo, 27k in series to a parallel combination of 100k and .0022uF. The other side of the pot holds the tone cap, an NOS Russian Teflon cap. It does take up a little bit of real estate; but, the pcb boards really help with shedding the space needed for wires. So with this combination, I have a nice and fairly neat Volume/Tone Pot with the Treble Bleed I favor. Im doing a lot of this pcb board conversions; e.g. a Rothstein, Varitone, etc. I have been having difficulties posting pics of late. I hope these come through. /ypHvz6x /PccJc5S /cxctxHj /4s2PyM4
However, if you desire a simple, no-frills approach, I've just installed a plugin which uses Postimage.org as the host. Just click the button marked Postimage Upload while you're on the posting page and it will allow you to select an image file from your computer, upload it to the host, and spit the BBCode into the textarea on the posting page.
Thanks to Retread, I believe finally these images will come through. It’s a Bourns Pot that I’ve outfitted with two custom boards I had made, 1 for the treble bleed,(27k in series with 100k and .0022 in parallel) and 1 board I had made for a Push-Pull Volume Down and Tone Up. The tone portion has a Russian NOS Teflon .018 cap. I’m not showing this to show off, I’m showing it to portray how easy wiring can be done using PCB’s. I plan on doing more for more builds. One of our fellow members got me interested in designing pcb’s Come thru pics!!
