Q: In general there are two main 'strengths' of potetiometer, or pots as thet are commonly referred to, that are used on electric guitars. 250k - These are generally used on single coil pickups as they naturally take off some of the shrill unwanted treble that that single coil pickups can produce. 500k - These are generally used on humbucking pickups as they allow more treble frequencies through and help avoid the signal sounding muddy or dull. Pots, well those used on electric guitars, also come in 2 flavours and you will see them referred to as A or B. So that is A500k, A250k, B500k and B250k. Now we have already established what the 250k and 500k means in all this but what about the A or B ? This letter defines the 'taper' of the pot, which means how the pot operates in rolling off the signal. A pots are often referred to as Audio or Logarithmic taper. Without going into a huge scientific explanation , these are mostly used for Volume pots. B pots are often referred to as Linear taper. Again without worrying about the science, these are used nowadays mostly on tone controls. As I said, this is the common use of these type of pots in electric guitars but they are only a rule of thumb. If you find that your humbuckers are sounding too shrill or trebly then you can try using a 250k pot, or if your single coils aren't sounding the way you like then try a 500k pot. Its all about experimentation and finding what works for you. If you use a different value pot from "The Norm" the world won't come to an end, your guitar won't explode, and by a bit or trial and error you might discover another ingredient to finding Your Perfect Tone.

Q: Are these pickups wax potted and what magnet is used in them or are they ceramic??
— Asked by Andrew on 4th April 2016
A: All our pickups from the lowest to the highest proce ones are either wax or resin potted to avoid unwanted microphonic feed back. We use high quality ceramic magnets in these pickups as they are manufactured to a far more consistent standard than Alnico
