Pots aka Potentiometers - A couple of interesting reads

Post by guitar hiro » Fri Feb 14, 2020 8:25 am

I'm not up to speed on the whole volume pot/tone pot thing & was digging around; located a couple of interesting articles on pots.

Pots are something that I typically don't think about much but the recent installation of the Dry Zs in my Bacchus BLP-FM Relic got me more interested. The reason being that once the Dry Zs were installed the volume pots seem to operate differently; can't explain why though.

So, here are the two articles; be sure to check out the Alpha, Bourns, and CTS links in the second link.

Well, the reason I like PAFs is because they are the most single coil sounding of the buckers - Possum
