Tubescreamer Fat Switch 3P/SPDT

Postby t0thedrums » 12 Jan 2012, 10:10

First post in eons. Just got a GGG ITS8 working with all the mods, it sounds incredible. I searched high and low for hours but I ran into this problem: I did the fat mod with 2 caps on a 3 position SPDT switch that is ON-OFF-ON, hoping that the center position would be lifted, just like the diode lift mod which uses the same exact switch. Both caps work and I wired it off board just like the beavis audio diagram but only the center position switch doesn't work (it bypasses the signal)!!!! Can this actually work? I assume it does because of the diode lift mod, why wouldn't a cap lift work? Any insight would be GREATLY appreciated!!!!
