About

I’m a big fan of CTS pots, I've tried and tested a variety and were really impressed by these vintage style/spec items commissioned by Tube Amp Doctor. These are a little different to the other TVT and SSSP pots I also stock/have stocked over the years so felt they were a worthy addition to the range. 
They feature the vintage style 'dished' back/casing, much like what those early Centralab pots seen on golden era guitars looked like. A detail that perhaps those looking for more vintage correct aesthetics on a project might find useful. They are based upon the CTS 'J' 30% taper, which will provide the player with a smoother, more linear roll-off for greater fine-tuning control, particularly in the lower half of the range of the dial. 
These also have a much looser turning torque compared to the TVT, SVT and SSSP pots I have stocked also. So if you find stiffer to turn pots not to your tastes, and prefer a pot which feels much easier/quicker to turn then these will be great for you.

The pot value features a +/-10% tolerance which is incredibly important as the rating is accurate to the requirements, be it 250k or 500k. Their construction is also a longer life-span brass shaft and bushing with a graphite wiper. Each pot comes complete with a nut, washer and star tooth washer.

One thing worth noting, is that these pots have been spec'd for the most common 250k applications, such as Strats or Teles, so the mounting thread depth is fairly shallow to fit pickguards and control plates perfectly. If you need a 250k pot with a longer mounting thread length for another application, then I now also stock the 450 Series 250k split shaft pot too, which you can find it my other listings.
