xx made my own 'soundman eliminator'
« Thread started on: May 19th, 2010, 12:29am »

so, instead of buying one, i made my own. i had the case powdercoated white, used a blue LED, a proper SLO knob, and had the case laser engraved in the soldano logo font. i was hoping to get away without using a cap, but it looses too much of the highs without it. the 1 meg pot is a pretty good choice; even all the way down, it doesn't cut too much, so it gives you a pretty good and usable range for the solo boost. i'll put this last in the effects loop (closest to the return). here's the schematics i used: http://www.diyguitarist.com/PDF_Files/SoloPro.pdf , but went with a true bypass instead of another pot. let me know what you think.

thanks! i don't need a cap after all; my dumb ass had the treble down and the presence up. lowering the volume on the pedal was losing the presence not the treble! duh! it's fine without a cap (called bill and he said they don't use one either). only interesting point: i'm using the 1M pot, while bill uses a 25k-250k, and most on other forums use a 100k. i don't really think it makes a difference, but this one seems fine. also, notice that took the pics before grounding the #1 lug on the pot to the sleeve of the jacks.
