Hi Sheldon,

Hope you had a nice vacation a week or so ago.

I really like the way that the hybrid treble control functions when the volume on the ABII is on full. The treble works great from all the way down to all the way up -- without a drop-off in volume. As we discussed previously, I've noticed that, with the vol. pot down a even a little bit, the treble cut also serves as a vol. cut. I've recently used a volume pedal (250K pot), which works perfectly by allowing me to make adjustments to volume while experiencing no cut in volume when adjusting the treble pot (works great in passive and active modes).

I want to go wireless and want to be free of the pedal, not to mention just wanting to have this functionality right on the bass itself. I'd like to wire the vol. pot on the bass in the same place in the signal path that the vol. pedal now occupies. Can I just take the leads off of the vol. pot in the bass, hardwire them and then use the same pot as the last component before the signal leaves the bass?

Let me know if this would cause any trouble or otherwise be a bad idea. If it's an OK idea, let me know what the steps might be when you get a minute.

Thanks very much,

John

On a complete side-note, if you are considering going wireless, seriously check out the [url=http://www.x2digitalwireless.com/:1gw9ipgc]X2 Digital Wireless[/url:1gw9ipgc] system. They've got a rack mount version out now.

Hi John,

What kind of volume pedal is it? Active or passive?

Sheldon, it is passive. The only electrical components are the jacks and the 250K pot.
