500k Pots on a J, no audible difference

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by eukatheude, Feb 15, 2013.


  1. I swapped both volume pots with 500K pots i had spare. The bass is wired in series. I also compared the spectrals on the wav files (these are mp3 @320kbps CBR) and couldn't spot significant differences. Can you hear any difference between the two?
    I apologise for any mistakes in my playing or my intonation, i've had this bass for 4 months and the riff is the first that came to mind.

    it should be at least noticeable; are you sure the bass didn't already have 500ks in it?
     
  3. Yep, they were 250K.
