New electronics and pots
Hi, I bought a used Ibanez SR300DX and used it for a while.
My pots are kinda wonky and I lost signal a couple of times.
Since I'm planning to do a couple of live gigs, that can't happen and I was wondering if I should just get new electronics and pots just in case. How are pots related to the electronics and what kind should I use.
It's an active preamp with p, j, tone and phat bass knobs.
I can't see the ohms on all of the pots, I guess they aren't all the same?
try a squirt of contact cleaner in each pot and the jack. You buy it at electronics stores in an aerosol with a thin tube that attaches to the nozzle. Rotate the pots fully back and forth a few times. Put a plug in the jack and wiggle it around a bit too.
If it is still playing up, only replace the pots that are faulty. Once they are desoldered and removed you should be able to read the values, or measure them with a multi-meter. They are unlikely to be all the same.
