    I have been building a couple of stingray clone/copies. I wired a tonepump in one(older non-trim version). Sounds awesome....but the output is ridiculous. I cant turn the volume past 1/2 or it distorts my pre horribly.
    So my question is what value of trim pot do I need to insert? And where in should it go? Between tonepump & vol pot? After pump before output jack? Between pup & tonepump?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Put the trimmer between the preamp and output, and don't ground the third terminal. Use whatever value gives you the proper ranger of adjustability across the taper. Perhaps 25k.
