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 - PMT, Dual Mode Tone Control
The DMT is a passive dual mode guitar tone control designed specifically for electric guitars that can operate in either HIGH PASS or LOW PASS modes greatly expanding the instruments tonal possibilities without the use of a battery or active electronics. Micro switches on the circuit board provide the user the ability to select one of two different frequency ranges for both high and low pass modes. Easy installation with no capacitors or other parts needed. Replace the tone control in you guitar with one that you will actually use!
Starting at $19.50
Potentiometer - Dunlop, Super Pot, Solid Shaft, 250kΩ
The Super Pots from Dunlop are high quality, high performance, volume and tone pots designed and built to last a lifetime. These pots are resistant to dust and corrosion so they will provide smooth performance without the noise and scratchiness associated with normal run of the mill pots. Dunlop tested these pots past the 7 million turn mark. With results like that, these may be the last pots you ever have to put in your instrument.
- 250K Audio taper
- Solid shaft
- Proprietary technology
- Resistant to dust and corrosion
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.
Potentiometer - 20kΩ, Linear, Slide
20K linear slide potentiometer, center detent.

Potentiometer - PMT, Humbucker Control, Coil Filters
The HCP Humbucker Control Pot is a dual mode variable coil tap selector for electric guitars and basses that eliminates the additional switches associated with coil splitting a pair of humbuckers. In TAP mode, rotating the pot counterclockwise fades from humbuckers to outer coils (neck pickup South coil & bridge pickup North coil). Pulling the HCP control up and rotating it counterclockwise fades from humbuckers to inner coils (neck pickup North coil & bridge pickup South coil). Tonal control is expanded with the unique ability to coil tap both humbuckers in varying amounts. In COIL FILTER mode, turning the HCP control applies varying amounts of a specially tuned high frequency filter to only one coil of the selected coils of the humbuckers (either North or South coils can be filtered). This makes each pickup a single coil at high frequencies and a humbucker at lower frequencies which produces a sound similar to a pair of single coils but with a stronger, fuller tone and 50% less noise than coil tapping.
Potentiometer - Fender®, 250kΩ, J Taper, Solid Shaft, Control
Original Fender solid shaft 250K potentiometer with J taper. 3/8-32 threading. The resistance between wiper and cold lug measures about 25% at half-way shaft rotation.
Potentiometer - 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.
