Make your own treble bleed circuit


Ever notice how your tone loses highs when you turn the volume way down? A .001uF capacitor and a 150K-ohm watt resistor added to your wiring will maintain your tone as you turn the volume from ten to zero. We show you how to wire it in our Trade Secrets video #182. In that video you can hear the sound dif- ference it makes, too. Thanks to Brian Delaney for this tip!
