"Psycho Knob" vs. gain knob

Started this discussion. Last reply by rob muller 43 minutes ago. 5 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

"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…"

"You can add the psycho knob and get 3 different effects with the board  Also if you look at GuitFuel boards they have a board that has the 3 installed and a headphone jack as well  Hope that helps "

"no idea on the psycho knob but if you want to use headphones you will need a series resistor to limit the current flowing into them. full amp power would just destroy them. as to what size resistor to use depends on the resistance of you headphones…"

"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? (Yes, I seem…See More

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…"

"Not too many rules. I dislike the thin tinny sound I get with piezo. I like the flat pickups from Elmar, Dan Sleep, MGB Guitar. They install easy and sound great. I used to do volume and tone but now I just wire direct to the jack. Easy beans."

"You can use piezos with distortion. It will pick up every little scrape, but if you need Metallica levels of distortion use a mag pup. I have several with the "Snake Oil" mini humbuckers they have at Gitty. They sound good, and a rectangle…"

Wal Callaby replied to rob muller's discussion piezo's vs pickups in the group Introduce Yourself!
"Hi Rob, and happy new year! Much will depend on your style of playing. If you tend towards a rougher, rhythm-based approach, a piezo will pick up every single knock and scratch on the box. Moreover, I personally think that they give a…"

Thomas "Duck" Petry replied to rob muller's discussion piezo's vs pickups in the group Introduce Yourself!
"Hi Rob, it seems like the primary differences are in the sound.  I've done some of both with piezos and sever different types of magnetic pickups and it seems to me the primary difference is what sound you are looking for. Piezos seem to…"
