Hi folks - seeking advice. I’m looking to upgrade the pots on my 2017 R0 to get a more linear taper. Which are the best ones to buy? I’m based in the UK but am expecting to order from US as supplies here seem to be sold out.
Thanks in advance. And hope this is the correct Forum !!

You could try soldering a 500k resistor across the 2 hot lugs of your existing Vol Pots. = This essentially forces a taper, as it is adding resistance, as your lowering the Vol.

Measure your pot's taper first. Otherwise you're guessing what spec is "more linear" than what you have ...

CTS 450G different taper spec options ...
