Sometimes you need a right-angle PCB mount potentiometer that offers a little extra length. Our long-pin PCB pins allows 11.4mm clearance over the cool stuff populating your PCB. When it's height you need, reach for our long-pin 16mm pot!
Right-angle pots are as close to "plug and play" as you can get. Solder these potentiometers directly to the circuit board--no need to solder wires--and save your time for building even more fun stuff.

What is potentiometer taper?
Simply put, a potentiometer is a resistor. When you turn the pot, you change the level of resistance.
A potentiometer taper is the relationship between the position of the pot (as you turn it) and the corresponding output. This is important when using an audio potentiometer as a volume knob because humans perceive volume changes logarithmically. This means that if you use a logarithmic pot (type A), the volume sweep is evenly distributed through the rotation of the knob. In contrast, if you were to use a linear pot (type B) for volume control, most of the volume changes will be "crowded" at one end of the turn. The "reverse log" (type C), also called a reverse audio taper, is like an A taper, only reversed.
