Description

All quality CTS pots make for smooth, quiet operation. If your pots are scratchy, bent, have a loose ground connection, or if your piano has lost its sparkle, this is the ticket to quiet operation.

Two versions were offered through the years - From about 1970 till mid to late 73 Fender used a 1 mfd cap that was used to roll off the treble. Then around late 73 they changed the circuit configuration, capacitor value and tone potentiometer to roll off the bass and called it "Bass Boost"

After years of consideration, it is apparent that the Later style configuration is superior to the Early version. We offer our passive controls in the later Fender / Rhodes style configuration.

To hear the difference between Fender Rhodes and Rhodes passive electronics, please watch our video in the Video tab.

Smooth and no more crackles

Wanted something more reliable for gigging.
Worthwhile refresh for both pots and an upgrade to the molded right-angle pickup plug and cable that are approaching 45yrs old. Bass boost works as it should and is musical.
No issue with Mark II knobs. I hope it holds up.

Super convenient and great upgrade

New pots, connector and wiring are always a good idea on an old instrument. It is easy enough to buy some pots and a connector and do the upgrade yourself, but this kit is only a few more bucks than the cost of the quality parts it uses and all you do is plug it in. The better quality pots, wiring and connector are shielded better than the old ones and the piano has much less noise and a clearer tone as a result. Superior upgrade for very little money.
