View Full Version : Modding Carbon Copy for 100% wet?
08-29-2011, 08:21 PM
I run a CC in a wet/dry rig and I was wondering if anyone has done the mod to it to convert it to 100% wet? I think it involves lifting one edge of the R48 resistor on the board but due to the pedal's construction, they are tricky to work on. I've modded lots of stuff but is this something I should attempt or farm it out to a pro? Thanks!

would you consider getting something like an Xotic X-blender? That way you can do that without having to mod the pedal.

The x-blender would actually do the opposite - mix in more dry signal. I know there is usually a killdry mod that can be done for some pedals and I suspect it would work on the CC but no idea personally. Are you running it in a parallel loop or to a separate speaker? If you run modulation in your wet signal, I would suggest using a 100% wet modulation and leaving the delay as is. In my w/d/w rig, I have stereo spread chorus on all the time - no audible modulation, but still makes the rig sound huge and makes me feel like i am actually utilizing my two pa speakers (so I don't feel bad about just having them for repeats). Even in a w/d rig, you could toss a 100% wet chorus pedal in before the CC with the speed the whole way down and the depth the whole way up and it would sound great. For example, I think the Boss chorus pedals have a wet and dry output, as long as the dry output is plugged the wet would run 100% wet. Even toss a kickdisk on the speed knob so you can roll it up if you want some actual chorus on your sound.

Thanks for the ideas guys. I am running the CC in the wet side of a w/d rig with a Timefactor to a power amp then a speaker. I am not using any modulation with it, though that is a good idea HJF. I found the resistor that will give me kill dry on it but it is tiny! There is also a bunch of other stuff around it, I'd need a soldering iron with a very small tip and the ability to be low temp.
