||Linear vs. Audio pots; use interchangably?|
I was wondering, if linear or audio contol pots could be used interchangably. I want to build a Shaka, and was looking at Small Bear's site, and Steve has some of the pots, but not in the right "type" has anyone tried subing them? How does it effect your results?

Read "The Secret Life of Pots" at GEO for some discussion of pot and tapers.
In brief, yes, you can use them interchangeably, but the apparent effect of the pot will be bunched up at one end of the pot's rotation if you use the wrong taper for the application.

Thanks R.G. that article was helpful. I knew there was a difference, just wasn't sure what it was.
