Be SUPER careful when dealing this pot (not newbie-friendly)

Rg. Lewandowski , 10.03.2018
1: No physical wiring diagrams given with the product. The official diagram in Shadow Electronic's website is super unclear.

2: Bad design. It's difficult to solder everything clean for this particular pot because of its tiny spacing between lugs, especially when you got a giant tone cap soldered on it.

3: Quite fragile. when i finally made the wiring right and tighten it up on my Les Paul, the pot just suddenly *pops* and the controlling pin just detached from the pot, but this ddin't happen to my other pots while i applied the same tension on them. Luckily it still holds together when i tried to put the pin back to the pot (with the use of a washer and nut).

Bottom Line: On function, it works great. On quality or design, not so. Would not be a big problem if you're a soldering expert; May ruin your day if it's your first time to solder (like me).

A fun extra to have on any guitar

19.10.2016
I bought the Shadow Kill Pot for a custom guitar I built, wanting to spec it out with lots of cool features.

I actually didn't expect to use the pot much, but it turned out to be a good investment.
It works very very well, just the right amount of sensitivity to touch and also has a notch at full volume which you can feel when the control is maxxed. this provides resistance to accidental twists when tapping the pot, but not so much as to make it hard to use for volume sweeps.

This was a godsend for me, as I tend to knock the volume of a standard pot down sometimes when playing. With this pot that no longer happens.

I'd have given it 5 stars, but for the build quality. I have had no problems, but the pot looks like one of those cheap far eastern dull metal things.
It did put me off when I got it, but it has been reliable despite my concerns.

I would have no qualms fitting another, or recommending it.
