Installing a Passive switch on MIA JB Deluxe

    I,m thinking on replacing the mid pot of my Active 2005 DJB with a push-pull one to get a Passive-Active bass.

    The problem is I can't find a pot at 92 Kz with the push-pull feature, so I need to reduce the freq with a resistance.
    Anyone did this? Does the mid in active mode sound the same? Does tha bass sound good on passive mode? Any alternative to get an active-passive JB?

    you'll probably get a better response to this question in the Pickups and Electronics forum

    all the best,

  4. you can get in the ball park of any pot by adding resistors in series or parallel with it.(to a point) What is the value of the pot you are replacing? Most pots are standard value like 250k 100k etc. And even that number is an approximation, +/- 10%, 15% or even 25 %! Also, make sure you get the right sweep function. There are 2 common kinds. Linear and log (audio) taper. We usually use log taper on audio circuits, but sometimes a linear taper is better on EQs. It depends on the circuit.
