low end fuzz Posted March 25, 2010 Report Share Posted March 25, 2010 so; in searching this problem the concensus seems to be a bad pot; i would assume this aswell; which is why i changed the pot the first time; and by change ;i mean drove 40 min to the closest long n mcquade and bought one the other story that comes up is checking w/ a meter; i got one at my shop, but i dont know how to use it; no time like the present; but im gonna hafta have it in front of me etc. but what if that checks out? what im expecting is to eithr see a reading of 0 (good) or something else on the meter from the 3rd lug of the volume pot; which would indicate a crap pot (?) its a 2 vol 1 tone setup all the pots except the p-bass vol pot work fine; the other volumes 3rd lug is grounded the same using a small wire connected to the back of the pot casing; thats the only thing that differs from any drawing ive seen where it looks like the lug is soldered itself to the pot. (i dont see that ever being an issue since the solder looks just fine) can i check my pot with a meter while its still wired? thank you Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
