unDeRstanD wHat a tone capacItoR Does
Ever noticed how some tone controls go from everything to nothing in just a tiny section of its travel? It’s determined by the interaction of the pickups, the pot and the capacitor. If you want a more subtle overall effect, you can consider using a lower value capacitor on the tone pot. Also note that the potentiometer value itself has an effect on the amount of high-end that passes through as the pot is turned down. The higher the value of the pot, the more high-end can pass. It could be the most enlightening £20 or £30 you ever spend.
