Yep, the trigger sensi is the same value as the original blue trimmer: 50K linear. For the trigger input, no switch, a mono jack embase with 3 legs is between the pcb and the piezzo. when jack is plugged, it cuts the signal from the piezzo. this is the thing: http://www.toutlehautparleur.com/images/...

yep! if you don't have ground problems now, you won't have later with it... so i don't think it's crucial to isolate the pots. i have another question concerning this kit, what's the use of the internal blue trimmer? sensibility of the piezo trigger? if it's this, it can maybe be usefull to replace ...
