This dual-gang PCB mount potentiometer for guitar pedals allows easy soldering.
The most common use of dual gang pots is to control the volume (or amplitude, if ya wanna get fancy) of a stereo signal.
The 1/4" smooth shaft is a perfect fit for 6.35mm (1/4") knobs with set screws.
Comes with nut and washer.
Currently, we offer this dual-gang pot in the Logarithmic / Type A 1M value only, but if there's enough demand, we'll add more values to our shop. Don't see the value that you want to order? Contact us!

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 a pot 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.
