150K-ohm 1/4-watt Resistor

About This Item

Mod your guitar volume control for more uniform tone from 1 to 10.

An easy mod for better sound.
Wire this small resistor in parallel with a .001uF capacitor, between the input and output lugs of a guitar volume control pot, to smooth out treble bleed. You'll get more uniform tone from 1 to 10, with a more rounded sound at low volume.

Hear the difference in TradeSecrets Issue 182.

This is a 1% tolerance resistor. Due to its small size, we recommend using Alligator Clip Heat Sinks when soldering it in place.

Sold individually.

Exactly what I needed and they got to me in Hawaii within 2 1/2 factor as always. Such a refreshing pleasure to work with you at SteMac all these years. You guys have always set the benchmark for excellence. Faithful in the small as well as the large orders.
Thanks as always, Gary Larson Music


Excellent resistor

(Customer's Reviews)

These are exactly what I wanted. They are high quality and they wired well into a treble bleed circuit on a volume pot.

I liked these because they came nicely layed-out in a neat row with a piece of tape across the ends so they didn't arrive all bent-up.


they work when installed with capacitors

I needed to relearn how to play my guitar because I thought it had increased in the quality of tone and articulation! I was shocked and impressed with mod improvements to a guitar. I'm looking for more mods!
