      A hard-wearing, specially designed pot with a killswitch.

      Since rock music began to go wild and loud in the 1960s the machine-gun sound effect with an electric guitar has become one important characteristics.

      If you strum a chord, turn the volume of one pickup down and the other pickup on and move your toggle fast up and down, it shreds your sound. This is the so-called machine-gun sound effect that you can listen to in countless rock songs. So far so good—but those radical actions destroyed innumerable toggle switches.

      Shadow has now solved this annoying problem: The SH 124 Kill Pot is a unique potentiometer with a momentary push switch for electric guitars that momentarily kills the sound by stroking it up and down. By pushing the Kill Pot potentiometer up and down quickly it creates an extraordinary sound effect which is well known from the wild rock 'n' roll days. You can now create your own machine gun sound effect with your guitar. This preserves your toggle switch and is much more comfortable to handle.

      You can install the SH 124 Kill Pot easily in any common electric guitar. Because of its 16 mm bushing, the potentiometer even suits arch-top guitars. The Kill Pot replaces the standard potentiometer of your electric guitar. It is up to you if you choose to replace your volume or tone pot.

      Of course, by replacing your standard potentiometer with the SH 124 Kill Pot you do not lose the feature of the old one. You can also control either the volume or tone with the Kill Pot potentiometer. Additionally, it gives you the opportunity to easily create an astonishing sound effect.

      The Shadow SH 124 guarantees 2 million of those pushes, which assures numerous machine-gun sounds. Therefore, the SH 124 Kill Pot makes a killer addition to your guitar!

        Comments about Shadow Kill Pot - Potentiometer for Humbucker Pickups:

        This product has strong potential, however, it was disappointing on two fronts:

        A) the unit I received ohmed out at 399k -- more than 20% off the 500k rating. No tolerance was specified, so buyer beware.

        B) the unit was obviously a return that with unsoldered pot connections and broken wires on the kill switch. This is typical MF customer service. This site used to be really good at customer service. Those days are long gone. I killed my MF account years ago, and decided to take a gamble on MF again. I'm in no hurry to buy from MF again.

        works well

        Comments about Shadow Kill Pot - Potentiometer for Humbucker Pickups:

        wish there was a way to kill the pop sound that happens, but that's pretty much how they all work.
        had it on my guitar for a year now with no issues. Use it quite a bit.
        little pricey

        It Was Great...for 2 months!

        By DK-rvtj4

        from Fallon, NV

        Comments about Shadow Kill Pot - Potentiometer for Humbucker Pickups:

        I installed this on my guitar and it worked great. About 6 weeks later right before a gig I turned the knob to reduce my volume and I noticed a little resistance. I rotated it back and forth and within 5 turns it had locked-up in place I finally got it to maximum volume so I could finish the gig. The ad says 2 MILLION pushes but had nowhere near 300 pushes before it broke down. Not impressed...especially at $ a pop!
