best pan pot

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by mike_odonovan, Feb 17, 2005.

  1. hey i have read somewhere that some pan pots are not as good as others. some only have half the volume from each pickup when centred for sound from the 2 pups. is this true?
    is there a pan pot that will give the full volume of both pups when in the centre notch?

    I think Stewart McDonald (sp?) makes one that will suit your purposes. www.stewmac.com Look under blend pots.

    Wouldn't then the volume level of your bas be much more inconsistent when you use the blend knob? Like ends: 1 + 0 = 1, while in center you'd have 1 + 1 = 2... Even if it won't be double, it would still be significantly louder than the rest.
