    In researching (sounds better than watching videos) for a future pedal build I came across a newer version of the pedal I intend to build that has a three way fat switch.  If I use a DPDT board on an On-Off-On DPDT switch I could use the stock value on the main board with additional capacitors that will be added to the stock value on the DPDT switch board correct?  Example: stock is 100nf and would be the value with the switch in the center position, I could put a 330nf plus a 33nf to get close to 470nf for fat, and if I put a 1uf and a 2.2uf on the other side I’d have value of 3.3uf for super fat.

    That should work just fine.

    Thanks Wilkie.  We’ll see how this one goes.  Of course, with a Roto-tone I could have stock, fat, super fat, and skinny or ultra fat – hmmm.

    You can get three options with the DPDT and four with the ROTO-TONE.
