Using a 4PDT to switch two pots


Active member
I think it can be done, but I’m struggling to wrap my head around it.

I built a RAH clone from here and love it, I leave it on all the time. What I’d like to do is use a footswitch so that I can have a preset option.

The switch would change from the stock volume and gain pots to a different set of pots set up for more drive and lower volume. This could be done either with trim pots or full size pots

Any clue on if this is doable with a 4pdt switch?

Sure. Just leave one lug of each pot connected to the circuit all the time and switch the other two with the 4PDT.

I can draw a diagram later if no one beats me to it.

You can do it with a 3PDT also.

If you look on the build instruction on that link there is a schematic that is super simple.
