Dollar Store find, 4” Clamps, 4 of em’, a dollar plus tax?

One in action, they’re not Pro quality, but they hold tight enough to do the job, so a good low budget buy?

Had not taken  it out the bag which made it hard to see. The resistor was on it lol

I think you mean capacitor? Tone controls are generally a pot (the turny thing, it's a variable resistor) with a capacitor connected to ground.

However a piezo itself is a capacitor, so maybe they react differently, a picture or two would really help.

Bought a cheap Piezo from ebay with a tone and volume prewired. When it arrived the tone pot has no resistor on it. Not managed to try it yet but I thought a tone pot would not work without a resistor ?

Yeah, cheapest I see are these, for $18, maybe that's the way to go?
