Most of the time, we use variable resistors for that purpose or we change voltage.
Just drop the schematic and say what you want and ill help you out...

I want to have a broad range in frequencies.... I would like to turn a knob to change frequency range below and beyond 1.8nf.Those are the values I would like to start with but I would like a whole variety pack of what ever kind of variable capacitors for other projects as well.
