JTV-69 tone control effects volume?
by Zbluezman on 2012-05-10 07:52:38

Anyone experience a slight boost in volume when turning the tone control down on thier JTV-69. Most pronounced on the electric guitar models.  I've re-flashed with V1.8 and no change. Not a problem per se but seems rather odd.

Yep, I'm experiencing the same on my JTV-89. Maybe the model calculates the tone setting based on several sample points ?!

Like you said, not a problem a little odd

This is has been present on the JTV guitars since the original Variax's and is there by design.  There is nothing different about your JTV vs. all other JTV guitars.
