Have been wanting to post this question for a while but didn’t want to look stupid. Just checked the mirror and it doesn’t matter either way… This is for the potentiometer gurus out there...As far as the effect of the tone and volume of a pickup active or passive when run through a balance or volume pot at say 250K for passive and 25K for active the number is a measurement of resistance and I hear how lowering the value will cut high end and darken tone somewhat. Is this for both passive and active? My thinking is if the value is decreased wouldn’t that increase what goes through the pot on its way to tone pot or preamp. My thinking tells me the opposite would happen contrary to what I read all the time. Why when there is less resistance cuts signal or decreases spectrum?
