    Hey guys, I was hoping someone could clear up the function of this switch. I'm not too sure how to interpret what moves where when it is turned. It is a knob switch on the front of an amp

    My first impression was unprintable, and the more I look at it, the less it makes sense. The bigger picture, as requested by sheldons, is necessary.

    Here it is! Kepp in mind, i'm only curious as to how the switch reacts when turned, not the end result. Electronicly speaking, what connections are made/broken.

    The long horizontal dotted line represents a single shaft that connects 3 connectors that are short, vertical dotted lines. The short dotted lines connect circles on each side. There are 6 solid lines that you must ignore. The dotted lines actually should extend past the solid lines to get to the circles.

    So if i understand correctly, turning the switch will change wich circle the DOTTED line is connected to? In total this knob has 3 connected wires at any 1 time?

    It should would be nice if audioguru was here to help with this. I don't know what the hell that is.
