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.Check out our Tech Corder articles on pots, including Potentiometer Types.
R-VAML-K-PCL Potentiometer - Alpha, Linear, Knurled Shaft, Right Angle, 16mm
Linear taper 16mm potentiometers with a T18 knurled shaft. These pots have right angle PCB mount terminals. The smaller size is useful for builds with limited panel space such as guitar pedals, synthesizer modules, and adding modifications to equipment. Washer and nut included.

R-VGORVA-BX-PC Potentiometer - GØRVA, Linear, 16mm, Right Angle PCB, Solid Shaft
High-quality pcb mount linear taper 16mm pots from Gorva Design. Gorva Design left no boxes unchecked when engineering their potentiometer lineup. Every element was carefully designed to offer builders an exceptional potentiometer with high durability and tight tolerances. Gorva potentiometers are made with stompboxes in mind but offer the same advantages to amplifiers, synthesizers, studio equipment and other electronics.
  • Right-angle PCB mount
  • Linear taper
  • +/- 10% tolerance
  • ¼” (6.35mm) solid shaft
  • Machine-pressed dust seal
  • High quality wiper material
  • Low residual resistance

For audio taper right-angle PCB mount pots see R-VGORVA-AX-PC. For audio taper solder lug pots see R-VGORVA-AX-SL. For linear taper solder lug pots see R-VGORVA-BX-SL.
