    i have to replace a pot in my bass...

    the one in my bass has 15a/25k on it...

    i could only find 250K pots....

    just to be sure is a 25K and a 250K the same? logic suggests that it's not.

    anyone know?

    thanks
     
  2. Nah it's not, its got 10 times the range of the 25k pot
     
  3. do you have active electronics? 250k range is passive, 25k range is active. try emg, i've heard that they have pots in that range available

    yeah, you need 25K. stewmac.com, guitarelectronics.com, wdmusic.com all carry those usually
