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.

R-VPMT-VTCXPotentiometer - PMT, CTS, Audio, Variable Treble Bleed, ⅜"

The V-Treb Variable Treble Bleed Circuit for guitar and bass is available pre-installed on high quality volume pots from CTS and Bourns. The circuit corrects the problem of high frequency losses at reduced volumes by allowing the player to control how bright or warm the tone will get as the volume control is reduced. Turning the trim pot clockwise increases the amount of treble bypass for a brighter sound at reduced volumes. Turning the trim pot counter clockwise reduces the amount of treble bypass for a warmer tone at reduced volumes. With the volume at 10, the V-Treb is removed from the circuit and does not affect the sound. The V-Treb circuit also also available separately for use on any other volume pot.

R-VCXA-DPDTPotentiometer - CTS, Audio, Knurled Shaft, .375" Bushing, DPDT

Add a switch to your guitar using the existing holes in your pick guard or body. High quality CTS Push/Pull DPDT switches can be used to add phase switching, coil tapping, series/parallel, etc. to your guitar without having to drill the holes for a mini switch. The shorter body height and side mounted contacts require far less space (1” depth ) making them ideal for thinner bodied guitars with a more shallow body cavity. These Split-shaft pots are compatible with 24- spline, fine knurled knobs and feature a precise audio taper. Hex nuts, flat washer, and lock washer are included with each pot. CTS DPDT pots are available in three types for different applications. Common uses are as follows:



  • 500K pots are commonly used when wiring humbuckers.
  • 250K pots are commonly used when wiring single-coil pickups
  • 500K long-shaft pots are commonly used when wiring carved top solid body guitars
