    Just thought that i'd post this in case anyone wants to be able to have a variable control for adjusting the mids scoop from 'stock' to having flat mids in an EHX bass big muff. since it uses SMD components you have to be careful but it wasn't really difficult at all. IMO, this mod, along with the master volume mod posted elsewhere in this forum make the pedal 100X better.

    thanks. I have another muff with the feedback mod but I rarely ever use that feature so i'm not going to install it in this one.
     
  3. Bumping this as it didn't look like it got much attention last time. Having just tried out a COG Grand Tarkin today (great pedal), I want the same mids knob on my BBM so am gonna order the parts today!

    I just finished the master volume mod on mine and really like it. I would like more mids but I don't really want another pot. Is there a way to just have a switch for flat mids?
    Thanks to all you guys and especially Mr. Kallas for sharing your knowledge and letting electronics noobs like me get started.

    Finally got around to doing this mod and WOW!!! With the master volume mod and this, I love this pedal. I was on the fence about keeping it for a while but now I'd have to spend three times as much to get a muff this good. Thanks John!!
