Treble compenstation question....

I have added a .001uF capacitor and a 150 ohm resistor in series. It's brighter than I'd like when rolling off guitar volume. I had the same values in parallel and it seemed a little too dark and it looses the audio taper of the volume pot.

Sooo, to lessen the amount of the treble compensation so that it's not as bright, should I increase the resistance, or reduce the capacitance?

Thanks

Try a 680pf cap in parallel with a 150k ohm resistor. These are what Tom Anderson and Suhr use in their guitars.

Increase the cap value if it's still too bright for you.

With the cap and resistor in parallel, the high pass action won't be so sharp with bass and mid cut off so quickly. Therefore, you get a more balanced tone when turn down the volume pot.

I have this set up in my hss tyler studio elite and it works for me.

You need 150K ohm resistor NOT 150 ohm.

Hi,
Grosh has 680pf with a 220k resistor for his strats in parallel... I put this combo in all my strats...
