    I am trying to do my first electronics upgrade and have been a little confused about the pots. Other than size, is there a difference between "full-size" and "mini" pots? At allparts.com you can get a mini 250K audio pot for $2.00 USD, but a regular 250K pot costs $5.50 USD. What's the deal here?
     
  2. Larger pots can pass more power through them. At the scale of guitar electronics, though, it doesn't really matter. Larger ones might be more durable, though... but as far as I can tell, it shouldn't make a difference.
