PPIV Master Volume Kit
If you’ve got an old Marshall, or other push-pull, non-master volume amp, you already know it has to be cranked up fairly high to get overdriven tone. Unfortunately that also means very loud. With the PPIV (Post Phase Inverter) Master Volume kit, you can install a master volume that will allow you to achieve those overdriven tones at a much lower volume. This MV is based on Ken Fisher’s Type II, with the LarMar refinement (2.2M Ohm safety resistors). It is also the most transparent when rotated fully clockwise (maxed, or “dimed”). Please note: Beginning in 2018, instructions are now online for your convenience, allows us keep our prices competitive, and allows us to help contribute to a greener planet.
