Description

This Seymour Duncan 500K Yngwie Speed Pot is made for them by Bourns who are renowned for their high quality guitar potentiometers.

With his highly refined technique and exacting attention to sound Yngwie Malmsteen employs the volume pot to take complete control of his phrasing dynamics, he uses his pinkie finger to flip the volume on and off for dramatic, lightning fast starts and stops and so the YJM Speed Pot contains a minimal viscosity lubricant for fast action turns. The 500 K Ohms resistance gives a brighter tone than 250 K and is traditionally used for humbucker pickups and its logarithmic audio taper is normally used for volume pots so the human ear can hear the volume change more smoothly (though audio taper is now commonly used for tone pots as well). These have a durable brass threaded regular length shaft with an imperial 3/8" thread (commonly found on guitars made in the USA like Gibson, Fender or PRS Core) but please note these have metric coarse 18 spline knob mounting and so to replace pots with a 3/8" shaft you will also need replacement metric knobs (pots with an imperial 3/8" shaft normally have fine 24 spline knob mounting). Two mounting nuts, one flat washer and one lock washer included (mount the second nut on to the potentiometer before it is mounted through a pickguard to set the amount of the threaded shaft that shows above the surface and therefore the height of the knob above the guitar body).
