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.

Dust Cover - Plastic covering for 16mm Potentiometers, Clear
Clear dust cover for use with 16mm potentiometers. These covers slide over the back of the pot covering the holes and gaps to help prevent dust from accumulating inside avoiding potential repairs and replacing down the road. These covers are a great choice for tight builds to help insulate the PCB or other parts from the backs of potentiometers. The dust cover is made of clear hard plastic and is easy to install on Alpha 16mm pots.

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.
