Potentiometers

Potentiometers are used to control volume and tone. A potentiometer is a three-terminal resistor with a sliding or rotating contact that forms an adjustable voltage divider.Check out our Tech Corder articles on pots, including Potentiometer Types.
Potentiometer - AxLabs, Linear, Solid Shaft, Dish Back, ⅜” Bushing
High quality potentiometers from AxLabs. These linear taper pots feature a ⅜” bushing and ¼” (6.35mm) solid shaft. The dish back style matches the construction of many vintage guitars. Unlike any other potentiometers on the market, AxLabs pots were specifically designed for electric guitars, utilizing years of painstaking attention to detail in the industry. AxLabs potentiometers feature machined brass shaft sleeves and are lubricated with 3 different types of grease used in specific areas of the moving parts for ultra-smooth rotation. Shafts are then reinforced with a retainer ring positio­ned for strength and to reduce friction.

Potentiometer - Fender, 250K, Solid Shaft, No Load
250K ohm, solid shaft, no load. Some Fender guitars have a unique tone circuit that features a "Delta Tone" Control. The "Delta Tone" system consists of a high output bridge pickup and special 'no-load' tone control for the middle and bridge pickups. This new pot has a detent at the 10 position which bypasses completely any filtration through capacitors. Unlike the TBX, which has a detent at the 5 position and gradually reduces the amount of filtration through the capacitor, the Delta-Tone's 'no-load' feature eliminates filtration completely at the detent and the result is more of the direct presence of the pickup.

PCB - Panel Mount Adapter, 9mm Right Angle Potentiometer
Small PCB adapter boards to convert PCB mount 9mm right angle pots to wired panel mount pots. These adapters are great for tight builds allowing for more densely populated panels than 16mm options. They’re also a great way to incorporate sealed potentiometers into builds where larger sized options would be cost prohibitive.
