I'm looking to clip the bright-cap on my (1987?) Peavey VTM 60, and I have an idea where it is, but I've read people saying that it is either the C1 or C2 resistor. Unfortunately I can't find a schematic for it (I was sure that I had one bookmarked but I guess that's irrelevant).

Can someone confirm which one? I don't want to fry my ugly beast-baby.


Also painting the headshell today, will post pics if anyone wants to see.

C2 is the bright cap.

Neither C1 nor C2 are resistors, though they may look like it.

Just out of curiosity, what are they?


Despite being a gear nerd I know almost nothing about amp guts.

they are capacitors (some countries call it condensers).

Basically, don't clip either one that says 470 on it. That's your treble peaking circuit.

Thanks a lot guys.


One more question: would it be better to desolder it or just clip it right off? Or just clip one leg of the cap?

I always desolder it on my JCM 800 circuits.

That way if somebody wants it back in (can't imagine why) its easier to reverse.

Also, in your case, if you screw it up, you can just resolder.
