    Hi, I'm SFusillo :)

    intro:
    - music style: indie, rock, noise
    - Semour Duncan SCPB-3

    innner question:
    ok, Dudes: as Tone pot, i put a 250K: i want a sort of filter through the niceful bright frequencies of the pick up, then comes the Question:

    - if i put a 500K on the Volume pot, does some boost (on the already cutted bright frequencies by the 250K-Tone pot) come out?

    it's a nerdy question, i know.. anyway it will be my first time in welding something by myself, under a supervision (thanks God!).

    thanks for help and Jah-Rock&Roll bless to everyone!

    a Big ciao from Berlinitaly :)

    It has only a very small affect, and when you use the tone pot to cut some highs, the 500k volume pot is nearly the same as a 250k pot to me....it doesn't matter which one..I've used both, what I wrote is only my opinion. If you want to have a change in tone, changing the tone capacitor has more affect, .022μf cuts less treble, (sounds brighter), .047μf is the most used, .068μf takes a lot of treble out. (sort of dull sounding) .

    Thanks!

    so: given the SCPB-3 > if the Tone is 250K (human terms: 'planes a little bit-impercetible' of the bightness) and the Volume (i.e. sort of 'gain-even if percetible') is 500K, does not really effect?

    just do not weld stalagmites of solder and destroyng poor potentiometers! :D
