Slambox Pot - B5K?
« on: October 17, 2010, 01:59:57 PM »
Hello,

I specifically ordered a Reverse Audio Taper from Small Bear but the one they sent me is marked B5K. Would this still work for this build or do I need to reorder? My invoice shows the correct pot so, I know I placed the order correctly. I'm guessing they sent me the wrong one?

Anyway, I sat down to build this today and now I'm stuck. What happens if I use this pot? Does the volume/boost just go wonky across the taper?

Thanks!
J

You'll just have more bunching up at the end of the pot. Email Steve and he will probably send you a 5kC right away.
No matter where you go, there I am. Watching you.

Thanks again for the quick reply! It's a big help. It would have been a pain to remove after the fact (building it into a 1590a).

I emailed Small Bear this morning.
