Hi there, I heard you can replace resistors in pedals with potentiometers. I want to replace two resistors in a pedal I'm building with pots, one is 33k and the other 8k2 according to the schematic. What value of potentiometer do I use? Do I need to add anything else?

Thanks!

Use a 50k pot and a 10k pot; those are the two closest standard values.

Do you know how to wire them?


Thanks a ton!

Yes, thanks, I was just unsure about values.

You're building a Fuzz Face I'm guessing?


Yes, I thought I'd give this substitution a go, hopefully it'll sound half-decent :P

I would stick like a 4.7k resistor in series with that 10k pot.
Should give you more usable range.


Ok, thanks!

Edit: Does which side it goes on matter? If so, should it go on the side closest to the transistor, or on the other side of the pot?

It really doesn't matter.
