The HRMs can be really bright in OD mode, making it very har to dial in a usefull tone.
If you dial the treble trimmer down, the tone it totally killed.

My solution is adding a treble bleeder after the HRM tone stack. Its really simple.
I have used a small circuit, consisting of a 1n capacitor in series with a 150k resistor, added trom the input of the OD master to ground. Easy to mount between pot and bus bar.

Wih the treble beleeder added, you can turn up the treble trimmer on the HRM and it will sound nice and full.

Hi Fenderman,

Not a good idea! This would reduce highs but also would mess up high mids.
Here is a better solution. Get 12 way rotary switch, solder capacitors on each filament starting from 100pf … 200pf …. Up till 1200pf and install it same way as a RC treble bleed. This will only affect high frequencies and you’ll be amazed how smooth the tone will become.
That’s why I prefer non HRMs with bluesmaster clean and normal skyliner OD with such great filter. Trust me nothing comes closer.
That’s my little tone secret for you.
Cheers

The suggested treble bleed mod, was been published on the ampgarage.com by forumites Ayan and Dogears (Scott Lerner). These guys know the ropes and I wouldn't publish this mod if it didn't work. I use it in my amp and it gives my amp great bloom on the notes.  Cool

Sure they know the ropes! but they don't know about my mod Grin
which makes amp more bloomy and pronounced.
Hear the bloom here and it is not a feedback, recorded without speaker, streight to the PC

Hi Pickmaster,

Sounds great - what does your mod consist of? is it the one you've posted a your ago with increased snubber value(s)??

Sh..t! you’ve just reminded it to me mate! Indeed I’m back. Smiley

So:
Get the oil of Afro-dytee lady, Kiss
An' the dust of the Grand Wazoo  :Smiley
You might not believe this, little circuit, but it'll cure your harsh tone too! Cool

I hope circuit is self explanatory and easy.


But don’t forget – my amps are NON HRM !!! It will still work but do you need it when you already have HRM trimmers?
For more “bloom” try to replace your 150k slope resistor with 68k.
Good luck.  Tongue  Grin

Hmmm, this seems to be a mod to the Non-HRM OTS... Would this work with the HRM version as well, or is it essentially not needed with that circuit?

No HRM has the internal OD tone stack so you shouldn't need it. There is a case for having those TMB controls on the outside but, just play your amp out of its case and tweak till you're happy then put it back.

Thanks a million Doc. New year project......

Nice one! A treble bleed with various caps to choose from. A bit like the Steel string singer has now on the od channel?

Thanks for posting, I really liked this idea, even for my new BM50, so it is now implemented.  I tend to switch guitars a lot, humbucks->strats->P90s.  I've found that this amp really changes depending on the guitar and mine are all over the map and dialing in nice settings on one guitar does not always translate well to another.  It is nice to have a switch that can quickly "dial down" the extra OD treble that I experience with my strat and some other single coils.  My little knob fit nicely in the spot next to the logo with plenty of room on the backside for the capfest.  I don't know if this was the ideal way to wire it, but it works like a charm.
