Audio Or Linear?

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Woofenstein, Oct 3, 2004.

  1. I'm going to be taking the active tone circuit out of my Peavey Fury and put in a passive Vol/Vol/Tone setup. Can I just buy three audio pots or do I need linear for any of the controls? Thanks!

    Volume are typically audio and tone linear but I've seen (EMG's in particular, but others also in both passive and active basses) with all audio pots. And I've got a new Carvin pot still in the package marked : volume - 500k linear. It's not going to damage anything by using either one so you can try it and judge for youself.
  4. Yeah - I've noticed that Fender puts all audio pots in their basses, so it shouldn't be a big deal to get all audio pots! We'll see how it goes!
