boost the output


Wtf dude? First off, stop making new threads on the same subject. And no, I have no clue what it would do. Nothing orgasmic. Just don't do it. Just bend your fat ass back and crank it up or get a fucking pedal. Jesus, I think I might not like you.

uuuuhhhh yeaahhh. its not like that exactly. so the output of a guitar is an AC current going from +/- 2V or less (approx). if you attach a 9V battery (which is DC current) like that it is going to change it to an output range of +9V to +13, which probably wont destroy your amp, it will just sound like that.

EDIT: most of the more recent amps not have DC blocking capacitors right on the input so it wont do anything on a newer amp. a vintage amp will sound like you are breaking it.

what you want is a clean boost that multiplies the guitar's AC current output. many simple circuits exist for a DIY project or there are a couple choices available in retail like MXR microamp. or the old standby of setting an overdrive circuit (ie tubescreamer) to a minimal gain and cranking the master volume.

The battery would see a short, as your putting 9V on the tip (signal) and ground. It would heat up and eventually explode. It might add a slight DC offset to the signal before the battery exploded all inside your nice Squire.

If you need to kill a man with a 9v adapter? I say strangulate. Or swing the heavy end around and aim for the temple, all depends on your style.

By far the stupidest thing I have read today, I hear if you take a car battery and hook it up to your pickups it will boost your output by 50 decibels.
