question about pots
« on: August 07, 2012, 09:01:16 PM »
ok so i have a parts list here and im having trouble figuring out if its correct or not.

gain A500K
clean-A B100K dual gang
clean-B B100k dual gang   (im guessing A&B are just one dual gang pot right?)
Tone B20k     i cant find a 16mm pot that is 20K only 25K would that work?
volume B100K   i read somewhere that volume and some gain pots are supposed to be Audio while this one inicates linear

this is for a Sparkle Drive clone, which has 4 pots a Vol,Gain,Tone,Clean

any help? what should i do about the 20K and linear volume pot

Yes, clean A and B are two halves of a dual pot.
25k will work fine.
The volume pot is setting the gain of an opamp stage so it's not like a normal volume pot, that's why it uses a linear pot.

I am also building an effect based on the Sparkledrive and have a question about the dual gang pot:  is the "A" designation for the row on top (closest to the shaft) or on the bottom?
