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.
Adjustment Tool - Bourns Trimpots, H-90
Bourns trimmer adjustment tool. This tool is compatible with both the R-VT96Y-X multiturn trimmers and the R-VT62P-X single turn trimmers. The recessed end is especially helpful when used with the 3296Y trimmers to avoid slipping off of the screw adjuster. Features
- Meets UL 94V-0
- Pocket clip
- For use on most trimmer shafts/rotors
- Recessed end for use with extended shafts
- RoHS compliant
Circuit - PMT, Variable Treble Bleed
The V-Treb Variable Treble Bleed Circuit attaches to the bottom of any volume pot and 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.
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.
Dust Cover - Rubber covering for Potentiometers, black
Black dust cover for use with 16mm or 24mm 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. The dust cover is made of a soft rubbery material and is easy to install on standard 24mm and 16mm pots.

PCB - Panel Mount Adapter, 9mm Right Angle Potentiometer
Small PCB adapter boards to convert PCB mount 9mm right angle pots to wired panel mount pots. These adapters are great for tight builds allowing for more densely populated panels than 16mm options. They’re also a great way to incorporate sealed potentiometers into builds where larger sized options would be cost prohibitive.

PCB - Panel Mount Adapter, 9mm Vertical Potentiometer
Small PCB adapter boards to convert PCB mount 9mm vertical pots to wired panel mount pots. These adapters are great for tight builds allowing for more densely populated panels than 16mm options. They’re also a great way to incorporate sealed potentiometers into builds where larger sized options would be cost prohibitive.
