Talman_Hawk Posted March 20, 2006 Report Share Posted March 20, 2006 I was thinking of trying John Spina's idea for changing a volume pot to a lower value with a parallel fixed resistor (described at "Tweaking either a 1 meg pot to a 500k and a 500k to 250k"). But Lovekraft mentioned in the thread about cap values that doing so would "screw up the taper" of the pot. Is there any reasonable way of "knocking down" a 1 Meg pot to 300K or so without it becoming a really dumb idea? I was hoping to get a little different tone out of a 13.8K bridge humbucker when it's being cut to a singlecoil, with a 453K resistor on a 1 Meg push/pull pot. I'll pass up that plan if there's no real return for the effort. Thanks. -- Doug C. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
