We love a knurled shaft potentiometer. They make everything so easy. Just push the knurled shaft knob onto the knurled shaft pot. That's it. Done. Ditch the teeny-tiny set screw and forget about accidentally stripping the threads.
And, if you love a smooth shaft knob (and/or are just a glutton for those set screws): Every single knob we sell fits on a knurled shaft pot. BEST OF BOTH WORLDS! Knobs with set screws, knobs without, this pot does it all.
Comes with nut and washer
Choose from three tapers:
Logarithmic / Type A
Linear / Type B
Reverse Log / Type C
Knurled shaft measures 6mm - ALL BLMS knobs will fit this shaft. Even 1/4" knobs with a set screw.
With nut and washer
Logarithmic / Type A, Linear / Type B, or Reverse Log / Type C

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 backward.
