Is this possible?? (wiring DPDT Q??)

What I'd like to do is, using a push-pull, have volume control in both push and pull and have a low pass filter in the pull position.

I drew this up, but I'm only guessing if it will work as intended (if at all.....)

Interesting idea - but are you going to have a tone pot in the guitar? I thought tone pots were basically LPFs.?

Nope...no tone pot. With this, I hope that it will be like turning the tone to "0" when I pull up on the knob....... I'm gonna have to try a bunch of different value caps to find the "sweet spot", but once I do I'll be able to switch back and forth immediately!!!

Hell--use the other half of the DPDT, too! Throw a pair of diodes on there for you own DIY "Black Box."

Re: IS it possible?? (wiring Q??)

I've done that with capacitors and a pair of diodes. I used mini switches, though.

Another cool idea I've been wanting to try is use 2 concentric pots wired up to their own pickups and use a mini switch to switch between them. I like the idea of having a full power bridge pickup, then switching to a neck pickup with rolled back tone and volume for clean stuff.

Re: IS it possible?? (wiring Q??)

OK, now I'm intrigued. Are there any interesting other passive effects that I can use on either my push-pull DPDT or the second side of my DPDT mini-toggle??

The Black Ice is cool, but I don't want to commit before knowing what other possibilities are out there........What would really be cool would be a passive feedback circuit, similar to a sustainer.

You could build a simple buffer, booster, or another simple circuit in there and have the switch activate it.

Just a pair of clipping diodes would be cool.
If you go that direction--call or PM me first.
