Expand your tonal range!
Smoothly blend your pickups into your sound or remove the tone control entirely, giving your Strat the raw output of a "no-load" pot.
Seamless, intuitive blending
The Emerson Pro CTS Blender Pot has a custom audio taper specially designed for smooth and accurate response. Wire it to replace your Strat® middle pickup tone control, and smoothly blend your neck or bridge pickup into the mix at the 1, 2, 4 and 5 switch positions.
Get raw "no-load" sound
Add a full-throttle, no-load option by replacing your tone pot. Dial this pot up to 10, and it's removed from the circuit completely. Hear the full presence of your pickups, unaffected by loss of highs from your tone circuit. The capacitor and the pot are added back in smoothly as you roll off the control. The Pro Blender/No-load Pot has no detent, so the feel is click-free. This requires no special wiring, simply swap the pots.

"Pro CTS pots from Emerson Custom were designed to be the premium choice for the discerning guitarist looking for optimum performance. They feature a longer-life brass shaft and bushing, and a tighter resistance tolerance. Each and every Emerson Pro CTS pot is hand tested to ensure that it meets or exceeds our stated tolerances for smooth and accurate response."
—Mitch Ingram, Emerson Custom Guitar
"I use Emerson Pro CTS pots and really like the way they perform. No sudden jumps or cuts as you turn the dial. They're easier to turn, giving you faster control. The bottom of the pot has the vintage look, too."
—Erick Coleman, repairman and StewMac tech advisor
