You don't need to use a 3p2t for transistor swapping.You can just leave the Emitters of both connected in common and save a few bucks.
You are 100% correct, I often use the cheaper switches.
hi!i would like to use a rotary switch and various capacitors (instead of diodes)for a varitone in my guitar.i don't know much about wiring, but it seems to me that i should connect the groung to my jack-sleeve, and the wire from "A" to the volume pot?if so, in which lug should i connect it to?the one form the pick-up( & selector) or the one to the tip of the jack?thanks in advance,george
Hi George, What I would do --- is wire the varitone switch (into) the tone pot ; the way it would normally be wired. For example, in a strat - the tone capacitor is wired from ground (top of pot) to one of the lugs. Wire your varitone switch this way, and you shouldn't have any problems - and will be able to still use your tone controls as well.
