Hi all, Do me a favor: next time you're wired into your LMII or combo driven by that head, let a nice low E or low B ring out, and roll the gain up and down a bit. Do you get noise? My gain pot is completely silent when it gets moved and there's no signal, even with the volume well up. So it doesn't sound to me like other dirty pots I've come across. But if I have signal going through the amp, it's pretty noisy and scratchy. It's not a clipping sort of noise, it happens well below any sort of threshold along those lines. And it's not just in one portion of the range, it's pretty even across the throw of the dial. I'm wondering if other amps are the same. I'm also wondering if it's something I should have looked at. Of course, I can solve it for playing: I'll set the gain and leave it! But I'm still under warranty, and if something like this is a possible precursor to other trouble, I'd rather sort it out now. Thanks tons!
