New pots - Yes or no?

  1. I was recently told that by replacing my pots, will make my bass sound better.

    So my real question is will it, how much better, and what brand should I get?

    This is an edit:

    I don't know much about the electronics in a bass guitar lol

    Are your current pots noisy/scratchy? If not then replacing them won't make much of a difference. Replacing the tone pot with a higher value (500k or 1M) will add a little bit of brightness when you have the control set wide-open (10).
  3. Yeah, my tone knob is making a crackling noise when I turn it, but only if I'm playing
