Always go with Audio pots, here’s some reading if youre not in the know:https://www.amplifiedparts.com/tech-articles/basic-electric-guitar-...
I use audio taper for both.
One more question on this issue still lives. Is it then the A potmeter voor volume and the B potmeter for tone?
Tom’s reaction brings up the question what is the best way for volume and tone control on piezo?
I'm with Ted. I tried 0.022 uF caps and 25o k pots, but always go back to the 0.047 uF cap and 500k audio taper pot. This combination seems to give a big range of tones (single coil or humbucker). A piezo pickup is a whole other story.
Somehow I missed this question, sorry guys. Most people use 250k pots and .023 caps for a single coil and 500k pots and .047 caps for a humbucker.
I prefer 500k/.047 for everything, it sems to give me a wider range of adjustment.
I have the same question as TerryB. Where can I find answers to bis question?
If wiring up a single coil here:
1) what pots would be recommended (Audio vs Linear, 250k vs 500k)
2) what size capacitor on the tone pot?
