Introducing SSS Premium® CTS pots.

Our custom spec pots designed in conjunction with CTS offer a superior audio quality to standard CTS pots on the market and were designed with a unique audio taper specifically for guitar and bass players offering greater control and accuracy. Each pot is hand measured to ensure the tolerances are within our stated 8%.

Custom Audio Taper

Manufactured with a lovely, smooth torque - not too loose, or too stiff, SSS Premium® CTS pots have no choking, drop offs or sudden surges when dialling the controls up or down. Accurate vintage taper - still nice and reactive for volume swells but a slightly wider range and more usable volume sweep.

  • Custom audio taper
  • 8% resistance tolerance
  • Anti-static lubricant for a reliable, glitch-free operation
  • Tin plated easy solder casing
  • Traditional flat back cover
