6mm Solid Shaft
Bourns Potentiometers   Bourns Mini 250K Balance/Blend Control Pots
The potentiometer is designed with two independent elements adjusted by a single shaft. Each element has a unique taper as follows: Element #1 has a linear output increasing from 0% to 100% output over 50% of the mechanical travel in the clockwise direction. The element then stays at 100% output for the remaining 50% of mechanical travel. This output curve is known as the M taper. Element #2 is at 100 % output over the initial 50% of mechanical travel in the clockwise direction. The output decreases linear 100% to 0% over the remaining 50% of mechanical travel. This output curve is known as the N taper. View the Bournes Notes for Bass here.

Bourns mini blend pot with center detent. When positioned at center detent both pickups are on full. Choose either metric 18 spline knurled shaft or 6mm solid shaft.

CTS No-Load 250K Short Split Shaft Control Pot
6mm Split Shaft
CTS Electrocomponets  No-Load 250K Split Shaft Control Pot
Works like a standard 250K pot 1-9 but "clicks" in at 10 (full clockwise) and takes the pot out of the circuit entirely. This eliminates the path to ground that exists with standard pots in the full setting. The result is increased power and brightness at the "full on" setting. 1/4" threaded shaft length for pickguard and control plate mounting.
If 250K pots are used, the load is reduced from 125K to 250K and if 500K pots are used, the load is reduced from 250K to 500K (high resistance = low load) The reduced load allows more power output from the pickup and reduces the amount of high frequencies that bleed off to ground. This gives a noticeable increase in brightness and output in the full treble setting. The no load pot can be used in place of any standard volume or tone control in your bass guitar.

Note: The CTS 250K-500K Stacked Concentric Pots that I get from Allparts have a solid base on the body, whereas the CTS Pots made for Fender have a body base with a hollowed center displaying what looks like plastic inside. I haven't noticed any performance difference between the two but it is note worthy.
