CTS McCon-O-Pot Wah Wah Potentiometer:
$22

Conventional wah pots are not calibrated for many of todays circuits! Many “boutique” manufacturers either ripped off the old ICAR design, or copied it exactly only to put a new name on it and resell it as their own design. (That is just ridiculous isn’t it?) So many guitar players today want an ICAR tapered pot (usually not even knowing what it is or why they “need it”) …because “Jimi Played One”. (This is NOT an ICAR tapered pot.)

Of course, Jimi never used a personal computer to keep in touch with his family during his extensive touring; he never made a cellular telephone call. Nor did he use the Internet for simple banking transactions; he never used a GPS…

Face it folks, similarly speaking the effects world has changed since Jimi's time. I’m sure that if he had access to the stuff we do today, he’d agree some of it is pretty awesome, and undoubtedly use it. Things such as: True-bypass effect pedalswitching, rotary “tone” selector switches, input or output buffers, and improved designs on many of the semiconductor components readily available today.

This Pot has MUCH more sizzle by design through the culmination of efforts (coupled with technological advances) where I worked directly with CTS to make a better performing, more reliable pot for all of us.

  • The McCon-O-Pot features a heavier construction than the standard series pots usually offered (which makes it more heat tolerant for the less than savvy soldering types out there).
  • It has a smoother top end in order to control those nasally treble sounds that are very hard to combat by way of a custom, one of a kind taper.
  • It features an all-brass bushing and shaft for a smooth day-to-day operation, and more durability.
  • It is a “drop-in” replacement for almost every vintage, or new wah available today.
  • It has an additional pronounced “middle area” (rotation/feel)
  • It’s Crybaby, and Vox compatible.
  • It is a wonderful (easy) upgrade for any wah
  • 100K Impedance

An unexpected (and entirely independent) comparison of the McCon-O-Pot against a few competing types was conducted by a keen er (and engineer) named Phillip Perkmann. He provided the following graphical representation, to allow others to see it "in action" scientifically speaking. **Note the travel/sweep symmetry -- and the intentionalelongatingof the high-end resistance taper. This is what gives you a more pronounced middle area, and feel while playing.**I also offer bulk pricing on my site. If you areinterestedin bulk pricing, please visit:McCon-O-Pot

PLEASE NOTE: It is important that you understand that ALL pots eventually become scratchy. In some cases, even after only a few hours of use (ie: un-lubricated pots) since they will start to collect dust and debris from the friction acting against the carbon track inside of them. This pot comes un-lubricated from the factory. This was a decision made by the engineering team, and the internalcomponentswere specifically designed to be "safe" for regular cleaning/lubrication -- postinstallation.

Accordingly, I actuate, clean and lubricate ALL potentiometers before they leave my shop. This will keep it in tip-top shape for a long time before needing cleaning again.

They can be used for many years after they start to go, but they DO requiremaintenance. Even new ones may produce staticy sounds after only a few hours of use if they are factory un-lubricated, and carbon residue forms. You can very easily prevent unwanted noise by ensuring that you clean out the dust that forms from use, where the carbon track is acted on by the wiper arm inside the pot.
