tone pot value(K) ?

  1. If you have high impedance passive pickups, 250k or 500k.
    If you have low impedance active pickups, or for some reason want the tone control after the preamp, 25k or 50k.

    i have a precision and a mm pickups with piezo conductor (passive magnetic and piezo ) shoul i use a 250 o 500 k ??:bassist:
  3. Piezo and magnetic pickups should not be combined without buffering. The impedance of the magnetic pickups will basically short out the piezo elements. You need either a dual input preamp, or two buffers.

    It's a personal preference on pot values.
