What's this lovely monstronsity? Why, a dual-gang 16mm potentiometer, of course!
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 250K value only, but if there's enough demand, we'll add more values to our shop.

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.
