    Hi TalkBass,

    Just received a used Aguilar AG500 (2 channel) from eBay.

    Noticing the Master Volume on Channel 1 is goofed.
    Turning the Master Volume knob makes no change in the volume. It seems to be 'stuck' at a fairly high level, despite where I turn the knob.

    However, if the Master Volume knob is turned all the way down to where 0 would be, the sound is very scratchy and fades in and out (while still at the same semi-loud level).

    Any ideas what this might be? Thanks!
  2. I'd get in touch with Aguilar themselves, they have a pretty good reputation regarding their customer support.
    They should be able to figure out what the problem is or provide you with further info on what to do.
