    I have a Fender American Zone. The preamp has failed and I want to replace it with one of the Nordstrand 3B preamps. Since the EQ pots on my zone are smaller than normal pots I would like to just use them with the new preamp but I cannot find tech data about pot values on the Nordstrand. Does anyone know if the Nordstrand EQ pots are 100K linear? Also, I am new to this board and cannot figure out how to subscribe to a thread. I assume i can do that so I get email notification of new posts to the thread. Can anyone help me with that? Thanks to all.

    Thank you. Just looking at the pic they looked like normal size and not the mini's.
