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 - Song Huei, Linear, 9mm, Tall
Linear taper, vertical mount, Song Huei pots with a 6mm shaft. These 9mm pots are popular in DIY guitar pedals, modular synthesizers, and other projects where space is limited. The knurled shaft features a painted indicator line so no knob is required. These tall versions have a 17mm shaft length and a total height of 25mm. For audio taper versions, see R-VSHL-AX. For center notched linear taper versions, see R-VSHL-BX-CN.
