Tube Amp Ninja - April 27th, 2022
5 out of 5

I've used Alpha pots for decades and they've never failed to perform. Smooth, consistent and reliable, they fit the bill at low cost, and are even used by some well-known boutique guitar amp companies. I've installed them in every kind of equipment you can imagine, from guitar amps and FX pedals to test equipment and science projects.

I recently used a 10K pair of these on my powered breadboard along with some new knobs (P-K655X), to replace the intermittently failing junk OEM voltage adjustment pots and cheap-looking knobs. MUCH better!

Bought this as a replacement potentiometer for an 1981 Boss PH-1R "Depth" potentiometer. The unit fit and functioned perfectly. Only caveat, you will need to buy a new knob for the pot as the old original knob will not fit as the shaft on this replacement potentiometer is slightly larger that the original.

The smaller body size is perfect for use in small sized effects pedals. I like the 1/4 inch solid shaft size too. I used 3 pots in a project that I just completed and they work fine.

Perfect size for use as a speed control on my old PK-3 keyer. Works great!
