Started this discussion. Last reply by Paul Craig yesterday. 8 Replies

So I am picking up one of Gitty's 2.5 watt amp kits and plan to wire in the gain control, as per the video advice that they provide. But I am wondering if the Psycho Knob kits they offer would have…Continue

"The amp board has a positive off, the psycho knob lists the setting 0 as bypass/off but a former member tested and found it still pulls a little juice in that position and recommended adding a switch to save the battery. The gitty factory folks did…"

"C.B.Gitty website shows that the psycho knob is off and true bypass in position 1. The acoustic preamps have a on/off switch."

"You could wire them and the amp into a input plug for a walwart with optional battery hook up for outdoor use and no electricity. The Psycho knob and the preamp that C.B.Gitty sells have on/off knobs if I'm not mistaken. They would drain your…"

"Thanks for the advice, gents. After some serious cogitation I'm gonna try to stuff an EQ pre-amp to dial in the natural sound of my git, the Psycho Nob and the little 2.5 watt amp into one box. My plan, to simplify the wiring and save the…"

"A Gain knob adds some distortion to the amp and can be very versatile when adjusting your amp's controls. I would add the gain knob. A simple tone circuit can be run off the volume pot. Run a wire off the volume pot's center lug to the #1…"

"The gain knob will get you a little bit of distortion.  The Psycho knob will give you more than you can handle... IMHO, the psycho knob would eliminate the need for the gain, as you can use it in Bypass, Gain, Blues Crunch, Rock and Metal…"

"Psycho Knob" vs. gain knob

So I am picking up one of Gitty's 2.5 watt amp kits and plan to wire in the gain control, as per the video advice that they provide. But I am wondering if the Psycho Knob kits they offer would have anything else to add to the mix - or if I will be getting the same control by wiring in the gain control? And to add even more confusion.....what about adding a tone control with a small capacitor? AND just for fun, how difficult would it be to add a headphone jack to bypass the speaker?

Paul Craig replied to rob muller's discussion piezo's vs pickups in the group Introduce Yourself!
"I've used both and even mixed piezo and pickups. Piezos work fine with effects, they are a bit hot. The Rod Piezos are less of a problem with handling noise, but often require a preamp. Some preamps allow the hook up of pickups too.  The…"
