Help please - Need to drop output level slightly on EQD Tentacle build
Hi All -
New to this forum and so glad I joined!
I recently built the EQD Tentacle clone (EQD Tentacle) and actually combined it in the same housing as a BMP Ram's Head 73 - my own "OctaFuzz". Separate footswitches for each.
My problem is this:
- the Tentacle boosts the signal too much, regardless if I use it with the BMP, or any other OD or distortion pedal before it. Can someone suggest a mod to help me drop the output volume slightly? Ideally, I'd like to just set and forget it with a trimpot.
One other slightly annoying issue is a pop when stepping on either footswitch - would an extra cap somewhere at the inputs of both circuits work? If yes, what value, and where?

One more related question. I want to use an internal trimpot for this. I only have a 10k trim that will fit on my circuit board. Since I assume the volume control you suggested is a simple voltage divider, what is the impact of using a 10k pot instead of 100k? Less available level attenuation, or could it have come other negative impact to this circuit (or subsequent pedals in the chain)?
