Tone pot dating
The following section describes the most common components found inside an electric guitar.Pickups convert the mechanical energy of a vibrating string to an electrical signal, allowing it to be amplified, processed and reproduced.
Joining her at Ruth’s Alternative Caring are three charismatic “budtenders” (Dougie Baldwin, Elizabeth Ho and Elizabeth Alderfer), her entrepreneurial twentysomething son (Aaron Moten) and a very troubled security guard who served in Afghanistan (Tone Bell).So I gotta ask -- what's the attraction of these instruments? I understand some metal or hard rock players like this arrangement. Also a technical question -- if there's no tone knob one these guitars, is that equivalent to the missing tone control being all the way up, or all the way down?Is a capacitor added in-line with the volume circuitry, or is it just as if the pickup went straight to the amp?It most commonly consists of pickups, potentiometers to adjust volume and tone, a switch to select between different pickups (if the instrument has more than one), and the output socket.There may be additional controls for specific functions; the most common of these are described below.They both used the same circuits, only the LBM was made without tone and sustain pots.
I am including this as a legitimate Big Muff, even though it was not built on the classic Muff four-stage circuit. Though not quite the same as the organic transistor tone, is was very unique.
It is likely this version and the V5 tone bypass version listed below were made simultaneously, with the V4 version being phased out in 1978 or 1979.
To economize production, two of the three circuit boards used in the V4 Big Muff were also used in the Little Big Muff pedal enclosure.
Pickups vary greatly in construction, size, types of materials used, as well as various electrical properties, but are generally divided into two categories – single-coil and double-coil (also known as humbucker).
Potentiometers (often abbreviated as "pots") can be used to control a variety of functions inside an electric guitar.
The classic Tube Screamer sound includes a "mid-hump", which means that the circuit accentuates frequencies between the bass and treble ranges (mid-frequencies).
