Yes, i know about some recent problems with CTS pots, but as you said you found a few bad ones in a batch.Originally posted by John Phillips
I wouldn't actually recommend CTS any more. I'm still using them (until I can find a suitable replacement type) but I have had some problems with poor quality on the most recent couple of batches I've had.
I wouldn't describe it like that.Originally posted by alderbody

I won't disagree with you John since you have a personal experience, but the pots i got from RS (twice) were the older ones with the closed back and of course no mechanical failure issues.Originally posted by John Phillips
I'm quite certain the product quality has been cheapened - I'm not going on one or two pots, it's dozens. It's a real shame, as they were easy to get, not expensive, and until now reliable.
This is great news. Will they be available easily in the UK? (dumb question probably, but I've never bought any RS stuff before - the stock CTS were fine).Originally posted by Turbozag
I hesitate to mention this..
But we've told a couple people, so it'll get out anyway...
At RS Guitarworks, we have designed and had CTS build the prototypes of what we consider the ultimate pots for guitar!
They are CTS made with brass shafts, a special taper designed specifically for guitar, have tolerances that are TWICE as good as the ones available now, and will be a "special" target resistance...
We have the prototypes and blueprints. They rock! But they probably won't be available until September!
Hang in there!
And yes, we have a HUGE bucket of rejected CTS pots which are brand new from the factory!!!
$50-00 each ? Wow.Originally posted by larrylover
Alessandro, the amp maker, has had pots custom made for him. They are expensive, but very, very good sounding and have a smooth, even taper.
Like Ron said, much new stuff has too sudden a taper, coming on too strong around 8-9. I hope the custom RS pots solve this, and aren't overly expensive. Cheers.Originally posted by Ron Thorn
C'mon September.....smoooooth taper, smoooooth taper, no sudden drop off at "8", smoooooth taper.
