...make a remote foot controller to control the preamp gain pot on my Maz 38 remotely?
I am sick of the endless search for distortion pedals when I really like the sound of the distortion on the amp best. The obvious problem is how to change to settings that quickly in a live situation. In an ideal world I would have two amps, one for clean, one for dirty, but I am not swimming in cash right now.
I was thinking that it would possible to get the same pot used for the preamp gain, and put it into volume pedal, and route the signal to the remote pot when engaged. When the pedal is not plugged in the signal would flow as normal. The real question is, if send that signal through 15 feet of extra wire, is it going affect the tone and will I be potentially introducing a world of hum and buzz into the signal if the chord used in not properly grounded.
I know Neil Young has an elaborate mechanical system made for his Fender Deluxe that does this exact thing, but I thought my solution might a little easier than building a 'whizzer'.
And no... I already tried turning down the volume on my guitar, it just isn't exactly the same.
The RC booster is a good clean boost pedal. Transparent or you can use the EQ knobs.

GuitarZ: They say you should be on the same page about kids before you get married. I really think you ought to talk about expectations on outdoor Christmas/Holiday lights. That could have been a game changer.
