        Comments about DiMarzio 250K Custom Taper Split Shaft Pot:

        I had an old Peavey Raptor from the 1990's lying around and wanted to improve the sound. I purchased a set of Wilkinson WHS single coils and installed them. Sounds great! My tone pots didn't work though so I bought two of these Dimarzio pots and installed them along with a new capacitor and now I have great pickups, great tone (tone that actually works) and I don't have mini potentiometers anymore. Solid buy! Glad I did it!

              Was going to replace the stock pups in my Telecaster, but these pots really opened things up. Better highs and lows. More "life" if you know what I mean. Saved me some $$$ on pups.

                  Comments about DiMarzio 250K Custom Taper Split Shaft Pot:

                  Let's face it, you can get a pot from a lot of places on the internet. It came in handy that Musician's Friend carries these, and DiMarzio makes quality components, so finding this in my search was very convenient for me.

                  I have a Squier strat that I put Fender Vintage Noiseless pickups in the neck and middle, and a DiMarzio Injector at the bridge. The vintage noisless set came with a 1-megohm volume pot. And the sound just wasn't cutting it for me. It seems like kind of a silly thing that something as simple as a volume pot can make a big difference, but it did. I swapped out the pots, transferred over the RC network for the treble-bleed, and soldered all the wires on, and it just breathed new life into my guitar!

                  It feels like there's a little more output, slightly brighter tone, and just feels and sounds great in general. This is one of those things my Squier strat has been needing for a long time!

                  I can definitely recommend this pot.

                        I bought a handful of these for some various bass projects I am working on. I am piece by piece assembling my own Jazz and P-bass setup. These pots are very solid and feel really smooth. The quality is there and I feel they will definitely last a while.

                        Great Pots!!!

                        Comments about DiMarzio 250K Custom Taper Split Shaft Pot:

                        Great buy, if you change your own guitar electronics, or if your getting parts on MFriend to take to someone else, these are a great replacement for "stock" pots.
                        I swapped these DiMarzio 250k pots out for the 25k pots that ship with the Seymour Duncan AHB 2b Blackouts bridge pickup. Best decision i made, the sound is brighter and crisper with the twist of the volume knob and tone, and muddy and full of mids on the other end.
                        The quality is the best part of these. I have been working on guitars for years, These are by far some of the easiest pots to solder to in my experience. They flow solder beautifully and right where you want it. You may have tried before to solder all your grounds to a single point on a tiny pot, pain in the butt. Not with these, you can easily and spaciously arrange 5-6 solder points on the back of this pot with ease.
                        the electronics in your guitar are just as important as anything else if you want to achieve that tone you've always been looking for

                        I bought this because I wanted a Durable volume pot and I definately got it. The smoothest turning and best sounding taper I have heard of any guitar pot and it has metal tracks for the metal wiper, not cheap silicon so you don't have to worry about it wearing out in your lifetime. It also solder's better than anything else that i have soldered on. I think that this is worth every penny.

                        Good for volume, not for tone

                        I have two of these in a recent guitar project. This pot works as expected as a volume pot, but as a tone pot it is either all or nothing. Both feel slightly scratchy to turn at first, but they work and sound good.

                        Wow. Let me start off with that. I was building a custom Les paul from parts and whatnot a while ago, and I replaced the neck pickup's tone pot from the Gibson standard. Wow, again. Well lets see the Gibson 500k pot has excellent tone until you crank it down and mud is the appropriate word. Not with this, i chose this knowing that my 10 setting would be bright and my 0-1 setting would be smooth and silky. I got just that, and couldn't be happier with the diverse neck pickup I now have. Buy it!
