Like all "renovations" its become a runaway train. I've dropped quarter pounders into the p bass, and I found there isn't as much range as I like using the old 250k stock pots. I play in a thrash band and like a very punch midtone, the Basslines are eq'd towards the low end and I want to bring out those mids more. I'd been playing a J Bass with the bridge pick up off and the tone turn all the way bright, and had been pretty happy with the sound, to give a reference. From what I've read 1 meg pots will really bring those out in a serious way. As for capacitors this article: http://www.premierguitar.com/magazine/issue/2008/Mar/Auditioning_Tone_Capacitors.aspx Gave me good ideas, and I'm going to try a couple of Orange Drops using the method described in the article. What I am hoping to know though is about those 1 megs. Does anyone have experience running those? Is it a retarded idea, or seriously metal? Any input is appreciated.
