j. pierce Posted March 24, 2006 Report Share Posted March 24, 2006 I recently wired up one of builds, and even though the pickups were single coil, being that all I had in my parts bins where 500K? pots, I used those. Now the odd thing is, the usable sweep seems to be bunched at the end of the taper - that is, volume drops off very quickly as I begin to roll it off from 10, to where it's basically silent (unless the gain on my amp is up rather high) very quickly. (Around 7 or 8? I'm not exactly sure. But very quickly into the sweep.) If I'm just going to set and forget, it's no problem, but it's too finicky for whilst-playing adjustments. My first thought was that I hadn't used Audio taper pots, but I went back and checked (both the codes on the pot and with a multimeter) and they are audio-taper - is this a side effect of using a higher value pot than needed? Will switching out to 250K? pots help me out in this regard? Thanks guys. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
