Wiring Kit Pot Values?

Post by mickeyj4j » Fri Aug 23, 2019 12:16 am

Hi all with a Pbass, Jbass or any other pickup types, what is the difference between 500k and 250k pots for volume and tone.
I currently have a pbass I need to get a wiring kit for. Set of EMG Select pickups. I understand I can use either pot value.
Thanks for any ideas.

Higher values in the tone pot will allow more highs through, so can give a brighter tone.

A higher value in the volume pot might give a slightly higher output volume, but that's more dependent on the pickup itself.
