    i bought a used sr405 and it didnt come with that little plastic cover on the knobs that tell u what they do.. now it has 2 large knobs and 3 small ones..

    one would assume that the large knobs would control the volume of the 2 pups and the 3 small for tone..

    but what iv notives is when i turn down one fo the volume controls that the second pick up goes down too...

    now i think that the second large one is a master tone control knob and one of the small knobs is a volume knob..

    im a little confussed about this... can somebody help me out in determaning what each knob does specificly?
     
  2. Big knob near neck - Volume
    Big knob near bridge - pan
    Small near neck - treble
    Small in middle - Mids
    Small near bridge - bass

    There ya go. Have fun

    thank you :)


    whats Pan?
     
  4. Maybe I should have said balence. It controls the amount of bridge and neck pickup in the signal. There should be a notch that you feel when turning the knob. That will have the output from each pickup the same. Roll clockwise, neck pickup, counter-clockwise, bridge pickup.

    thanks, that makes alot of sense :)

    hmm i believe the 3 small ones have notches too... what does the notch indicate there?

    i mean it cant be that its off for both or on for both..

    explain please :)
     
  6. That means the specific EQ knob is at its flat position. Clockwise is boost, counter-clockwise is cut.

    ok so what iv collected is that


    the small knobs from neck to bridge are:
    Bass
    Mid
    and treble.


    Big knob near neck - Volume
    Big knob near bridge - balence. It controls the amount of bridge and neck pickup in the signal. There should be a notch that you feel when turning the knob. That will have the output from each pickup the same. Roll clockwise, neck pickup, counter-clockwise, bridge pickup.



    and that

    the 3 small knob notches mean the specific EQ knob is at its flat position. Clockwise is boost, counter-clockwise is cut.



    if this is all correct then thank you all :)

    if its not correct thank you for trying anyway :)
