    Hey all,
    I thought there's a wealth of experience and knowledge here, hopefully someone has an idea!

    I've got some fishman fluence pickups on the way,
    I've been told they need 25k pots,

    Has anyone seen any push push pots that are 25k in design?

    Thank you for your help!

    If you really want push push, there is not much I can say against it.

    However, in my experience they are incredibly flimsy and stop working afted a while, no matter what brand they are from. I think it is just something to do with the design. My advice, should you choose to follow it, it to stick with push/pull. They are reliable and easy enought to operate, in my opinion.

    Also with push pull you can tell which setting you are on without having to play notes and comparing the tone.

    Push pull last so much longer than push push. The seem like the best bet because they’re faster than push pull; but they’re all a bit weak at the spring and they never last too long. After a while it won’t push back to your other setting.
    Once you’ve replaced a couple, you’ll grab a push pull and feel how solid they are, and wish you used it the whole time.

    is there a way to take a LED (lights up) killswitch type button, and wire it so that its actually a push/push type button. When the coil split is active the LED comes on, when its deactived the LED goes off?

    It depends on whether you can source a DPDT latching switch with an LED that isn't meant for mains voltage and fits in the hole...

    Could be amazing though and would certainly last longer than a normal push/push whilst solving the issue of not knowing if its active or not without playing.

    If OP want to do a kill switch kind of thing, push/pulls don't work so well...
