Plate Bypass Cap for EVH 5150 III
« on: May 10, 2018, 01:26:39 pm »
Hello All!

Looking to add a Plate bypass Cap to the last gain stage and possibly the last two of the Red channel of EVH 5150III to cut back the high end fizzle. Any suggestions on values? Seems like BE-100 uses 500pf caps, Dual Rec uses 220pf, and SLO 100 uses 1000pf. Any suggestions? also if let me know if I should consider doing this to other gain stages instead of V3 or V4.

Schematic Attached.

It's going to be hard to recommend a value. Caps are fairly cheap though, I would honestly just get a bunch of different values and try them out.

What Budd said. Ultimately it is personal preference.
