    ...besides Mojo and RS?
    Mojo doesn't have what I am looking for and RS wants to charge 28$ to ship a 10$ order. [​IMG]

    As much as I'm not an advocate of much of the marketing, the RS pots are a different taper. I've measured and charted them out, and the taper notably softer than audio - about half way between standard audio and linear.

    Same as others said regarding sources - Allparts is good, and any local music store will be able to get them for you.

    RS Superpots for volume and the regular CTS for tone. The RS pots all have brass shafts and believe me, they are worth the money. I've broken many aluminum shaft pots.

    Just get them from RS, they have high tolerances. They are the best source I've found if you care anything about "specs" and quality.
