SSS Premium Taper® Pots - 500k

£5.95 - £6.95

Introducing SSS Premium Taper® pots.

Our custom spec pots designed in conjunction with CTS offer a superior audio quality to standard CTS pots on the market and were designed with a unique audio taper specifically for guitar and bass players offering greater control and accuracy.

Each pot is hand measured to ensure the tolerances are within our stated 8%.

Manufactured with a lovely, smooth torque - not too loose or too stiff, SSS Premium Taper® pots have no choking, sudden drop offs or surges when dialling the controls up or down with a widely usable audio taper sweep from 10 to 0, giving a very smooth and accurate response.

We will never supply you a pot measuring below 500k. So within a +8% tolerance, this is anywhere between 500k-540k
