A quick Pot question
I had to place an order at Mouser, so I figured getting a few supplies I always use would be a good idea. I saw these 500k p/p Bournes pots and they were relatively cheap....
But I see it's some kind of dual pot. They aren't blend pots. And of course, the Mouser catalog is confusing to a newbie like me.
My questions are:
1) Can I use this for bass work?
2) Do I just wire one set of lugs, do I jump them both (top and bottom)... how would I wire them?
Any help is much appreciated...
as well as any POT jokes you feel like making.:hiding:
Measure the overall resistance on the outside lugs. Then measure the resistance curve as you sweep the wiper lug compared to each outside lug in turn. Then you will know what kind of pot you have.
That's a push/pull pot.
Yes it is. I wanted to have that option available.
Usually, I'm used to standard pots (push/pull or not) having 3 solder lugs. This, however, has 6. There are 3 on top, 3 on bottom. Either way I test, they are 500k, so that's fine with me.
It appears to be a dual pot, like a blend, but with no center detent. I'm sure if I wanted, I could wire it as such and blend 2 pickups.
Specifically, though, I'm wondering whether to solder up one set of the lugs when I use the pot as just a volume control... or if I should jump both sets.
Here's a better picture:
Attn rojo412: Listen to what line6man says! He knows what he's talking about!
Looks like both sections go together (parallel)/ 2 channel like stereo.
'mech' may be right about wired parallel...
A blend pot will have 2 shaft sections (stacked)- one for each pup.
Could use the p/p to select between 500k or 250k?
Or don't use one set?
Or use as a tone pot with diff caps for each lug set?
