Premium "Area 59" CTS "TVT" pots (True Vintage Taper) are manufactured to a tolerance of 7% and are the closest to the true vintage curve of the golden days of guitar building available on the market today. These pots are designed for the guitarist or bassist looking for the ultimate tonal performance.

500k pots are suited to humbuckers and work well in conjunction with 0.022uF capacitors.

Manufactured with a lovely, smooth torque - not too soft, not too hard, TVT pots have no choking or sudden drop offs or surges when dialling the controls up or down.
