Re: My Mesa Single Rectifier is not 100% please help !!
I've seen this mod (other peoples photos) many times, although I think people usually wire to the centre lug on the pot instead of taping the two wire ends together. Same thing, I guess, as it's a direct contact between two wires.
The loop pot has a minimum 10% level, so you never got to 0%, right? Which means to say that 10% of the signal always passed thru when the loop was engaged in parallel. So what are you worried about? Now it's a direct feed and there might be some bleed. Your time based effects should sound better with this mod. Place a noise gate in the loop if you have to. The threshold should be fairly low, I'd think.
Best bet is to jump on the Boogie Board site and ask....... ahhhhh, I see that you did.
