    At this point I have no idea where exactly I found it but I can assure you that Mark's post was the only memorable one there...

      I don't think that was Mark
      It was a link back to this thread. jbefumo is an actual person if memory serves.

        So the higher input impedance loads the signal by a 'few' dB. Nothing major. Play with the two caps to get different curves for emphasis and de-emphasis. I tried this because I wanted something opposite of a standard guitar tone control.

        Credit where it's due: This experiment sparked by Merlin's preamp book where he takes the reader through the basics of frequency-dependent 'tone' networks. A basic LF control.

        edit: an exercise in posting pictures. Whew! Even with Steve's step-by-step, it took about 10 minutes and half a dozen tries!

          I will take your word on that. I guess I misinterpretted the reference to the thread here thinking that it was his thread. My bad!

          I also have a 2-tiered capacitor bypass on the volume controls (described here: http://music-electronics-forum.com/t15821/), which keeps things from getting muddy when the volume controls are turned down.

            Hey, if you can just upload the images I'll quote your post and display them full-sized.

            Thanks!
