Re: Quick question about Ibanez wiring diagram

Different curves. There are a *LOT* of different curves for pots but A and B are the most common. I recall Dimarzio(I think) making a 500kW pot which has a curve suitable for both volume and tone.

By the way, if you didn't know. The curve on a pot changes the way it reacts when you turn the pot up and down. ie. one type of curve will give you a more gradial decrease/increase in volume on a volume pot but another curve may not.

Re: Quick question about Ibanez wiring diagram

Yeah i know about the curves... in electronics here we call them "linear" and "logarithm-something..."

I wasnt aware of so many different curves for guitar pots, and i certainly didnt know they were named with letters...


thanx man

Re: Quick question about Ibanez wiring diagram

The curve on a pot wouldn't much of make a difference if your volume and tone are always on full. They really start taking effect if you manipulate the volume or tone pots.

In the end it's really a matter of preference once again.

Re: Quick question about Ibanez wiring diagram

so it varies from pot to pot, so which are the best overall pots or the most popular ones, and whats the difference between the audio taper and linear ones ?
