First thread!
« on: March 26, 2010, 12:22:40 AM »
Stupid question:  I am planning on building the pastyface kit (soulbender) and I want to buy all the parts from smallbear.  The pots are listed as 100kB and 500kA on the madbean parts list but at smallbear the pots are just listed as 100k and 500k.  Are these the right parts or is the A and B after the k important?

Here is the page from smallbear:

Also-- cool site.  Hope it gets off the ground.

Youngstown - the A stands for Audio and the B stands for Linear. These are two different kinds of tapers a pot can have (there are a couple more beyond those). You can use Linear and Audio interchangeably, but it's best to try to use the taper listed in the project. So, what you want is 100k Linear and 500k Audio.
