Capacitors vs Potentiometers – What’s the Difference?

capacitors vs potentiometersWhen thinking of Capacitors vs Potentiometers, the main difference is that capacitors filter a signal, while potentiometers are variable resistors.

Capacitors vs Potentiometers – What do the capacitors do in your circuit?

Capacitors vs Potentiometers: capacitors do many different things, but in your circuit, they are going to do two main things. First, they are going to filter any direct current from your audio signal, which is alternating current.

250k vs 500k Pots – What is the Difference?

250k vs 500k potsThe 250k vs 500k pots dilemma is one that often poses a challenge for guitar players.

250k vs 500k pots: what are the differences between these two popular types of potentiometers (pots), and how would you want to use each in your guitar?

One of the most common problems that guitar players face is a worn out Volume or Tone control. You can tell when one is becoming worn out by the loud, scratching sound that’s introduced into your guitar signal when you turn the potentiometer up or down.
