Amp repair advice
Hey guys. I just bought a new to me Carvin Pro Bass 2 from I believe the late 80s. I hooked it up and it powers fine, but the volume coming out is very low for what I thought it would and it scratches alot as I turn the volume up. I don't know if the volume is just gonna be how it is cause it's not a high powered amp or if the volume pot might be bad and it is effecting the performance. One thing I noticed is it seems to get louder within the scratching as I turn up likes its cutting in and out almost, but when I stop on a level it stays the same.
Any ideas on what my next step should be? I was gonna clean it first before thinking about replacing the pot, but I don't really know if that will make a difference.
