The #1 position normal "full on" tone I can see.
The middle position - now with tone control added, I can see
Its that last position that has me flipped.
You have the signal going to ground thru a .02 cap. And thru a resistor and cap to output.
Normally the cap-to-ground cuts a lot of treble out. Ok, still does. And normally a series cap with resistor cuts out bass. So whats left? Does the #3 position give a sort of snarly upper mid tone, devoid of lows and really bright highs? Whats it sposed to sound like?

neilium said:Also, follow up question: if capacitance passes high and blocks low, (which explains why our tone controls do what they do) why do larger coupling caps in amps result in more bass? Is it because they block more of the DC and the DC is swamping the lower frequencies?-CB- said:Having said all that - ok, how did we increase the impedance of the pickup?
