1 Meg Pots - Useable Range


Recommended Posts


I used 1 meg pots as vol controls on my latest DIY. The pots are StewMac audio taper.

The useable range is very narrow - from 12o'clock down to 8 o'clock.

The StewMac tech guy says 1 meg pots are like that.

I don't see why that should be so.

The sound is A OK. The pot thing is just a bit of an irritation.

The wiring is like a jazz bass, 2 vol 1 tone (500k) no switch.

Does anyone know whether the narrow range of use in\s typicl as suggested? and if not, what might cause this?
