  3. Don't waste your money. Really. Instead, use two Schottky diodes - available for pennies from your local electronics supply house - wired in reverse in place of the BI. The lowest-value diodes provide the best crunch.

    If you wanna get really fancy, use a push-pull pot with your tone cap and the Schottky's.

    To be honest, though, it tends to sound like a pile of crap.

    you could just run your bass's 9V battery down to 3 or 4 volts to get the same bad sound.
  5. Yeah, I never did understand why people want that crap on their instruments.:confused:

    I can't imagine it would ever sound good.
