Paragon, Blues Blue Breaker, King of Tone, reverse log gain pot?


New member
I just built some KOT/POTs with a 500kB drive pot instead of the 100kb. The higher value was taken from another variant called the British Ballbreaker. It seems like there is a concentration of gain bunched up at the end of the pot rotation. Would using a log, or reverse log help distribute the gain more evenly through the rotation?

These were built on Aion boards, the resistors around the drive pots are a little different, so I used a different pot instead of a different resistor.

I’m about to build a Paragon and a Paragon mini and I’m considering using a pot with a different taper.
