Dollar Store find, 4” Clamps, 4 of em’, a dollar plus tax?

One in action, they’re not Pro quality, but they hold tight enough to do the job, so a good low budget buy?

Had not taken  it out the bag which made it hard to see. The resistor was on it lol

I think you mean capacitor? Tone controls are generally a pot (the turny thing, it's a variable resistor) with a capacitor connected to ground.

However a piezo itself is a capacitor, so maybe they react differently, a picture or two would really help.
