Hello everyone, silly question time again. Whilst working at a local high school, one of the teachers was throwing some "old gear" away that I thought might come in handy for spares. Anyway, after stripping it down I was looking at the pots and saw them marked at 5K Ohms. I measured them at 4.5K on my meter and was wondering if they are useful in any way. They have 3 pins, (centre ground) and a plastic base. Any info taken gladly. :xfingers:

Centre ground?

Hmmm, I can't even think of a guitar tone stack that would use something oddball as that :confused:

Cheers!

Sure they're not trim pots of some kind?

Hi Greg.
Yeah man I'm pretty sure they're standard split shaft pots. Three tags with 4.5k between the outside pair regardless of shaft position and 4.5 to 0.0 between any outside tag and centre when the shaft is rotated. I'll re-test tomorrow just to make sure. They came off an 8 way "listening" station in a language class with individual headphone jack & vol. pot if that helps. :thumbsup:

I've re-checked them, and I'm getting the same results.
