the bright switch on my vibrolux is great as a presence booster at low volumes, if you want extra sparkle/clarity. the one of my traynor, however, sucks.

i'd rather use a pedal for that kinda thing tbh. the boss fa-1 is great for that.

The real secret is rangemaster into blackface tho

i used to run a rangemaster into the traynor but it only worked with the amp wound WAY up, and kind of fucked up the signal path for me. sounded fuckin good tho

I modded the bright switch on my traynor ygm-3. It's killer now - practically always on. I find the traynors to be a little on the bassy/muddy side to begin with (the bax tone controls let a lot more low-mids through than most tone stacks.), so a well-tuned bright switch really makes the amp shine. The stock values do suck though....

Jazz Chorus bright switches sound great with humbuckers. I tend to prefer the sound without them, but I've been impressed by all the bright switches on all the JCs I've tried.

I forget what values I settled on, but I'll pop it open and take a look sometime soon and get back to you.

I tought the FAC was just an in-line high pass filter. Have I missed something? I think Bryan Wompler has an amp with a vari-bright thing too. I wanted to do it with my DRRI but just couldnt be bothered (see earlier postage)

I experienced this too, sadly. I have some sets of wound g .010s but ive just stuck to regular 11s for now
