    Uhmm. None.

    Just bring a couple wires, (connected where the cap would go), out from under the pickguard or control cavity, and clip that on. Now you can hear, in real time, the direct affect of each value. Including one's you'd normally never use. Just for the sake of learning.

    . Hell, I want to make a switch out of one and put it in a guitar. At the very least I'll get some long leads and put it on top of the amp. lol

    It's early.

    Thanks Artie, this is probably better than learning from a book and definitely cheaper and less time time consuming than buying a bunch of parts and experimenting.

    This is where it at. Where would I find one?

    I made a varitone/varivolume out of a 4 way switch. On one side it has different values of resistors and on the other side it has different values of caps. It's cool and useful. The tone is no load so with the tone on 10 it will just be the resistors affecting the volume and darkening it that way. I think the cap values are 22nf, 15, 10, and 6.8. The resistors result in the volume equivalents of like 300k, 200k, 125k, and 85k or something like that.

    In reality, the best place to learn is your home. Buy some parts and experiment. Outside of that, you can learn a lot here, too.

    started a topic Please help with pots, caps & resistors

    Please help with pots, caps & resistors

    Where a the best place to learn about how different cap and resistor values affect different pot values?
