    Hello all,
    I have been getting a lot of sound static/fuzz when I turn up the volume knob on my Ibanez SR900 (Bart MK-1 PuPs) right after I first plug in my bass. After I play for a while, if I turn the knob, the fuzz (usually) isn't there. Can anyone suggest ways to eliminate the fuzz all together? Thanks ahead of time!

    *NOTE: I only hear the fuzz when I am actively turning the knob.
  2. Before spraying the pot with Deoxit C5, first try this:

    Rotate the pot full clockwise to full counterclockwise MANY times.

    Often this is all that's needed to remove light oxidation on the pot's resistive element.
