Resistor and Capacitor values?

Post by vidmachine on Fri Jan 21, 2011 7:17 pm

Over at it says "The coil tap and phase mini switches are DPDT, the active bypass switch is a 4 pole changeover switch. The volume pot is 500K log, the gain pot is 250K log and the active tone pot is a 500K linear pot with a centre detent. Resistor R1 is 1 meg, capacitor C1 is 0.022 microfarad mylar."

Does anyone know what wattage they should be? I have seen choices for 1/8, 1/4, 1/2 watt etc...

I think the switch is a 4PDT On-On. It has the cap and resistor from one terminal to the ground on the side of the switch.

The power within a guitar or bass is relatively very small.
In short,anything will do but to preserve your sanity why not pick up a 1 watt resistor. Point in case being that they are large enough to physicaly handle at least.

As for the capacitor,these are referenced in voltage capacity as well as capacitance and again....voltages within a guitar or bass is so low that anything goes basicaly.
