Instead of pots

loaucInstead of pots
Have you seen those old rheostats for lab experiments with big currents? I was wondering if I could find one small enough to use it as a pot in a wah. I don't know how reliable and easy to mantain it could be but it's worth trying. Maybe I can try with some graphite from a pencil and wiring just one end and another copper wire with exposed tip running along the graphite bar.  
 
 
 
Just thinking...

Loauc.
