    Default Would caps color my tone without tone circuits?

    Right now im running 470k or 270k resistors in place of tone circuits. Would adding .22 caps more accurately simulate tone circuits on 10?

    If you have some reason for NOT having tone pots, I'd suggest just running straight through to the jack (or switch). Anything else that you put in there would be a tone sucker not a tone circuit.
