    i have a set of SD ASB5's. The set came with 3 100k mini pots. I am wiring the bass to have a vol and tone for each pickup - so i need another pot.

    Since i cannot find any
    mini 100k (or any 100k ) pots can I use 500k pots for the whole job ?

    Duncan won't sell you one? You probably should try to match the pots you've got.
     
  3. use the 100's for vol and 250/500 for the tones...
    you dont want any tone leaking out unnecessarily...
    thats 2 new pots but balanced circuits on both
    have you considered tone pot by pass so the pots are not in the equation at all for a clean top end.?
