    I just completed a build that I used a 1 meg audio pot for the volume. It mildly increases until you get to 8, then swells to a much higher volume. It has 2 single coils. The build spec said this is what was used originally. Should I have used something else ?

    thx in advance, mike

    Is it lin or log?

    Audio taper, for sure. Put a treble bypass on, or switch to linear.

    You can get log pots in lots of different tapers. A different taper might work better for you.

    That's normal. I use it to advantage and like it, but you can make it more level if you really want to.
