Anyone know the Bourns part # for a crybaby wah replacement pot. I can't seem to find it in the mouser catalog.

A standard 100K linear pot won't work in a Crybaby wah. The original pot sweep is 100K and Linear but the total resistance sweep happens in less than 180 deg. of rotation. You won't get the familiar "Wah" sound from a 270 deg. pot. It will be very weak, with no vocal quality.  
Word! :)

Well, last May I put a 100K lin Bourns in my JH-1 sound I ever had with that pedal(IMHO of course).

Where did you purchase this Bourns pot? I'm guessing it's one of the custom made ones from Roger Mayer or his associate in Hawaii.

Rick, it's from RS-Components, UK.I bought it years ago from an electronic parts surplus shop.It seems to be a standard lin.type.
