MK III Tight Arse

Post by Cave Passive Pedals » 29 Sep 2017, 12:00

Hi Guys,

Yeah, I know, I've been away with the fairies lately and not answering your queries. I am sorry.

The good news is I've been working on the LPF and HPF powered circuit, the third design of the Tight Arse series, and have now got enough data to put together a prototype for Dave (aka Bobbybdazzler) to test.

Those that play stand-up / double bass will be happy as the input impedance will be 5 meg (possible 10 meg) to suit piezo pickups. Also, each filter will have 2 poles (slope of 40dB/decade (12dB/octave)), the same circuit as the "Tighter Arse" (MKII) but with a second order attached.

The difference between the MKIII Tight Arse and other similar products on the market will be the cost, country of origin and a boost/overdrive circuit.

Cheers
Heath
