    does any one know what value cap is used and has anyone messed around with different values?

    thanks!

    it looks to me like i would get a more pronounced effect from a smaller value cap. right?

    That capacitor acts as a high pass filter, so it blocks lower frequencies from going to the output:

    based on this formula, a higher capacitance would lower the filter's cutoff frequency
    lowering the capacitance value would raise the cutoff frequency, but also reduce output
