150K-ohm 1/4-watt Resistor, Pack of 10

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.

Pack of 10.

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.



(Customer's Reviews)

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

(Customer's Reviews)

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!
