Hey all,


I got a dime distortion laying around that I don't use, can I turn it into some sort of boost pedal or eq thing that i can use ( have a 6505 so don't need the pedal 4 gain)
if I put it in the pedal chain it adds gain, and alters the sound (offcourse ) so I want the gain taken out and then only use volume boost and/or EQ knobs.


thnx.

If you want a booster, I would suggest just building one. The Electro-Harmonix LPB-1 is a very popular one-transistor booster. The circuit is so simple it can be built on a terminal strip.



The Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster is a more complex, but more versatile, circuit.

There are a million booster circuits out there.

but got a question, I see 1 in and 1 out, but a guitar cable has 2 wires, do I just need to solder the other wire from in to out ?

The two wires are the signal wire (also called the "hot" wire) and the ground wire. In diagrams that don't show a ground wire, the ground wire is implied because it's always there; there must always be 2 connections to a circuit to make it a complete loop (closed circuit).
