    Cap effect on full pot

    It's easy enough to test this by taking the back plate off and shorting out the cap with some clips. The pot values do matter, and typically have awful tolerances (20%).

    "high overhead" tone from a small tube amp?

    I really like the Pro Jr, but it is more similar to a Bluesbreaker than the typical Fender amp. Check out what Swart has - I have an STR Tweed and really like it. If you're looking for a blackface tone, a Princeton Reverb is a good low power choice.

    I believe the 82Hz refers to the sample rate of the test equipment, not any injected signal. The testing was done with charge and discharge times of 65 seconds, which isn't seen in any guitar circuits. Soakage can be an issue with instrumentation circuits or other circuits with very, very high...

    question re stacking overdrive pedals

    One at a time, set each pedal to unity gain, meaning that when you turn them on there is no rise or fall in the volume...Now is there a drop when you stack them?

    Which caps

    The tone cap makes no difference if you keep the tone knob all the way up. It's reactance is inconsequential compared to the pot's resistance until closer to the middle of the tone knob position. If you want to effect your tone, check the potentiometers. Not only do they make a bigger...

    Pedal power draw?

    Sounds about right. The LED is probably the biggest draw in that circuit.

    Pedals that Do Not work well with an FX Loop?

    Yes, loops that aren't attenuated can actually fry some pedals.

    Dunlop cry baby wah pedal sounds really trebbly.

    Not sure what you mean by "should be only the guitar". When the wah is on, there is no position where your signal is unaffected. The wah effect when rocked forward will be very thin and treble-y. Many think a stock Crybaby is too bright at the high end and there are a lot of mods that can change...

    Boost versus transparent overdrive... What's the difference?

    I always thought "transparent" was a stupid adjective for a pedal. From a design standpoint though, any drive pedal that includes any amount of clipping has to handle the eq different than a purely clean boost. The Klon mixes some clean after the clipping to expand the eq, and the Timmy has a...
