    im modifying a guitars wah wah circuits tone by using various capacitors(6) and a rotary switch. i attached the schematic.capacitor labled "Cf" is the tone capacitor. another website recommended a 6 pole double throw rotary switch for 6 different caps. radio shack has a 2pole 6 position rotary switch. will this work for me? is there a difference between 2 pole 6 position and a 6 pole 2 throw?

    I believe the Radio Shack part is the one you want because it allows 6 cpapcitors to be switched. A 6 pole, 2 throw switch only allows 2 positions, so I think this is a mistake in printing.
