I have a CIJ Jaguar and have never found a use for the strangle switch until today. While messing around through an acoustic guitar emulator on a Vox Tonelab I switched to the bridge pickup with the strangle switch - instant banjo!

BTW this forum is great and has helped loads in getting my Jag and Mustang set up.

Thanks GUys

That's probably the only legit use I've ever heard for that switch. Can you post demo clips of how this sounds?

then i'm guessing you've never heard it on through a fuzz face or eau claire thunder?

because i'm pretty sure that's why that switch was invented.

I haven't tried that and I have a MBM Fuzzface and ECT. What does it sound like?

I am in the process of restoring the Strangle switch and adding a phase switch on the Haze Jaguar SH.

Are you on the bridge or neck or does it matter?

How about you post clips of how this sounds? Putting that stupid switch back into place for a single one-trick option that I can just as easily put into any standard stompbox is too much work.

Better yet, why doesn't Aen just put a switchable strangle into this pedal?

There are a lot of uses for the strangle switch.

Personally, I always play on an overdrive channel with very light overdrive, using a boost to get saturated tones. In this setup, a strangle switch causes just the right frequencies to drop out and just enough volume drop that you get sparkling jangle cleans under light overdrive, especially with both pickups on.

I always switch the second tone knob on Strats to a strangle pot, dial in just the right amount of strangle.

i use the strangle switch more than i thought i would and mostly when the neck pickup is involved. the tone when it's just the bridge is super thin and quiet, but when both pickups are on, it can be a nice weapon in the arsenal. in fact, i enjoy employing it most for recording, and it's a testament to the jag's versatility. i can easily get 4 or 5 distinct tones without having to switch guitars. . . brilliant time saver.

Can this be rigged to a push/pull pot?
