Just thought up this idea....now I know, there was a Claptone by Cara pedal which used the Fender mid boost Clapton kit (part #0057577000), but they are no longer in production...and their price of $200-250 was ridiculous too.... So I thought to myself....okay....I can take the Clapton mid boost kit, pots and board and 9V battery etc and put them in a pedal housing.....and do it all for less than $100..... https://www.musiciansfriend.com/accessories/fender-pre-amp-mid-boost-kit-25-db There are however things I don't know how to do.... 1 - How to wire the pedal to be true bypass when in 'off' mode 2 - how to wire in an LED that shows when the pedal is 'on' 3 - should I wire in the option to use it with a 9V power supply? Now, we have to consider 'are these even necessary?' - conceivably you could mount the entire kit in a pedal housing, battery, pots, capacitor, resistor, etc WITHOUT even using an on/off switch, or LED, or power supply input..... I'm hoping people can weigh in....because the 'KISS' principle tells me I should be able to do this without the need for all 3 of those 'what-ifs'....however is it going to be very useful in that case? Honestly I'm one of those set-it-and-forget-it kind of players when I go to open mic or gig with bands I've been in. What I mean by that is I tend to use one guitar (to avoid changes in volume between pickup changes etc), and also only one sound - I set it so there's a bit of dirt when the volume on the guitar is on full, then I roll it back to 6-7 for cleans..... There's also the consideration 'does the mid boost kit play well with regular non-noiseless single coils?' - My gut and research told me previously that the answer was NO but some people on this forum have told me it works fine without much added noise.... So recommendations would be great.....I used to own a Clapton Artist Series Strat and LOVED the sound (Fender Vintage Noiseless version), but didn't like the super small frets.... Lastly....this could be one of the few documented experiments where you use the Fender mid boost kit on guitar with P90s, or humbuckers etc. I could conceivably use it on an Epiphone Les Paul Standard for example.... So there's a lot to consider, the kit right now is about $56 and free shipping, and I can get an aluminum housing shipped for about $15-20.
