SKU: N/A Category: Tag:


An enclosed volume/tone pot combo paired with standard 1/4″ output jack. Pots are A500k and the cap is .022µF.  Includes a mounting bracket for attaching to a “monkey-on-a-stick” style mount. Soldering will be necessary to attach it your pickup. See this diagram.

Is your pickup not mounted with monkey on a stick? You can also get a standalone mounting plate on my store to attach this to any floating-bridge guitar.

There are pre-assembled units and a DIY kit for lower cost, which includes everything you need to assemble it yourself, except the wires. That means: the housing, the mounting plate, a machine screw + nut, two knobs, two potentiometers, an output jack, and a capacitor. Not an easy job, but rewarding if you’re a handy person. Soldering skill and ability to work in tight clearances is necessary.

Here are the build instructions for the DIY kit: DeArmond Volume Tone Build Instructions.

The color will be black, but exact styling of knobs and hardware may vary.

Measurements of outer casing (not including bracket): 58mm x 51mm x 18mm. Bracket extends 33mm.

These are made-to-order. If in stock, allow 3-4 days for shipment. If backordered, allow 1-2 weeks to ship.
