Bare Knuckle Custom 280K Standard Shaft Potentiometer
Volume pots are another link in the sonic chain between guitar and amp. Unfortunately, most stock pots are not the highest quality. Having high grade, close tolerance pots makes a lot of sense and Bare Knuckle Pickups, who make amazing pickups, are now offereing the best pots for guitar players.
Standard guitar pots, either strock or replacement, are made with a large variance (up to 25%) in tolerance. This means your average 250K pot may actually be under 200K. This affects the high frequencies and can contribute to muddiness when rolling back the volume. In addition, run-of-the-mill pots are less than "smooth" and linear.
These custom, high grade, 280K pots, made with a 10% tolerance for Bare Knuckle by CTS, solve all these problems and are the way to go, especially if you've already invested in upgraded pickups.
