Stamped on every potentiometer (volume and tone pots) is a six- or seven-digit source code that tells who made the pot, as well as the week and the year.
The source dating code is an element of standardization that is administered by the Electronics Industries Alliance (EIA).
The EIA assigns each manufacturer a three-digit code (there are some with one, two or four digits).
When dating an instrument by the ‘pot code,’ keep two things in mind: The potentiometers must be original to the piece (new solder, or a date code that is off by ten or more years is a good giveaway to spot replacement pots); and the pot code only indicates when the potentiometer was manufactured!
I made this pedal for me, but I think you might like it too.
And a Tele still sounds like a Tele, a Les Paul like a Les Paul. (until now) just can't hold a candle to what a good amp can do if you are really picky.
You not only lose all the touch sensitivity, but forget about those complex Harmonics.
They will not be found to be perfect, or absolutely correct, but are provided as an aid for your use and enjoyment.
Singer Featherweights were manufactured in three different plants: Elizabethport, New Jersey in the USA; Clydebank, Kilbowie, Scotland in Great Britain; and St. You can quickly determine which plant your machine was manufactured in by looking at the serial number on the bottom of your machine. I was worried about the wiring to my original foot pedal, therefore, I was glad to get the new one.
