Push/pull Pot For On/off Switch?


Recommended Posts

A push/pull pot with DPDT switch is just that, use it for a volume/tone whatever and the switch can be used again for whatever. Just make sure the resistance of the pot works for what you intend ie 250k, 500k or in the case of some preamps 25k.

no DPDT stands for double poll double throw. There are two sets of leads(6 total connectors, with 2 seperate circut switches) and the switch can only be in Pos 1 or Pos2.

to make a off switch you'd simply let the hot connector simply not on the other end, or connect to ground so you dont get the fuz.

he means with the pot thats attached to the switch, it sounds like your doing somthing with a active setup..
