    Hi all
    I have a problem with volume pot on my Cort C5H bass. When i turn it to zero volume i still get some signal. Weaker than full-volume signal but there is still some...
    How can i fix it, or is it normal?
     
  2. There are only two explanations for this behavior.

    1. The pot is not grounded properly. This is almost always the case.
    2. The wafer and/or wiper is defective, allowing a significant resistance to exist at the end of the rotation, where it should be zero.

    Ok, so what should i do? Change the pot, check something?
     
  4. Check the grounding, and resolder, if necessary.
