These can be a godsend . . .

When, for instance, you widen a strat style pickup route to accommodate a P90 only to find that a standard size volume pot no longer fits. There are some pretty high quality small frame pots out there, but many have damping fluid in them to give them that tight "high end stereo" feel. That's fine for the balance pot on your FM receiver, but on a guitar you need something that can be adjusted with the flick of a pinky in a tenth of a second, not something that you have to wrap more than one finger around to get it to move. These are great for that.

THESE CONTROL POTS ARE GOOD AND WORK WELL IF YOU DO NOT HOLD THE SOLDER GUN ON AS LONG AS YOU DO THE REGULAR SIZE POTS. THEY HEAT UP MUCH FASTER AND CAN RUIN THE POT IF HELD TOO LONG!

500 K Mini Pots

The Mini Pots are the only ones that will fit in the very tight cavity of my Hammer Slammer. I upgraded from the factory 250 K pots and there IS a difference in output ! Now I'll get them for the rest of my guitars !

Pretty good

These pots are OK. A little fragile as one of the leads busted off while bending it to solder to the case. My Bad. I'd order them again, but will need to be a little more gentle with these guys.
