250K tone/volume


Recommended Posts

ok thanks

the reason im asking is because my 22 fret strat with 250K pots doesnt get any harmonics compared to my 24fret charvel with 500Ks. And I'm trying to determine if the reason is JUST because of the humbucker (Pearly Gates vs Custom Custom) or also because of the pots. :D

well, the Pearly Gates isn't much of a squealer, it has a deliberate low output to better match volumes with single coils.

The Custom Custom, however, is modeled after the pickup Eddie Van Halen handwound himself.

I'm thinking that is the root of the problem.

I also believe that 500K pots would help, especially if your using humbuckers.
