One Knob Pot Value?
« on: April 16, 2020, 09:52:46 PM »
Hello everyone!

I am looking to make a guitar with a single knob and was wondering if that affects what value the knob potentiometer should be.
I heard that a single-knob guitar (volume, of course) that has a 250K pot would have the same impact on the tone that two 500k pots would have were the guitar a two-knob (one vol, one tone) type of guitar. Is this true?

I am looking to do two humbuckers, FYI.

Any help in understanding the one-knob pot value equation is most appreciated.
