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-VCENTRA Trimmer - Centralab, Variable Resistor for Fuzz Bias, Side Adjust, 15kΩ
New old stock variable resistors made by Centralab. These differ from most trimmers since the wiper is connected to the end of the track making it only usable as a variable resistor. These variable resistors have two very long leads making them a great choice for point to point builds in addition to PCB mounting. The old design looks great in vintage style builds. Note: The trimmer can only be adjusted by pushing the small kink at the end of the wiper.
