Phsychonoodler posted something over in the Amps section that made me think. It looks like I'm going to install something like Stew-Mac's Black Ice
in a guitar soon. I figure that must be some sort of diode clipper, and I'm not real crazy about that sound at low signal levels. I had thought about using LEDs and I read Physcho's post about red clipping harder than green or blue, so...
... here are the questions: Should I use both of them or just one? If two, should they be one of each or should I pick a single color? What's the difference between green and blue, if any?
Also, Stew-Mac says a 250k pot is better
. Should I swap out the stock 500k (humbuckers) since I'll be using LEDs?
Lastly... I've never used LEDs like this. Do they light up when you play? That might
be something cool to make visible to the crowd.
I know, "try it and see". I will, but I thought I'd check anyone's prior experience first.
