    I have a GSR205 and the sound cuts in and out. It's fixed by tapping or hitting he pots hard. Anyone else know how to fix this and or help me out, thank you.

    You might have one or more bad solder joints. You might have one or more defective wires. You might have one or more defective pots. Or the pots might just be very dirty inside.

    Move one wire around at a time with a pencil. Take a note of which wires cause a drop out. Odds are you'll find the culprit.

    Hitting things randomly, while satisfying, is rarely an effective diagnostic routine.
     
  3. don't use a pencil...use a skewer...



    HAHHA...just kidding...good suggestions, Lyle
