    Hi there,
    Just bought a Peavey T-40 and the Volume Pots are not turning all the way off.
    Anyone have any experience with this?
    Thanks,
    Rob Cathcart

    Check the ground connections. Without a ground the pots will still work but won’t shunt the signal to ground so won’t go to zero.

    Hey, thanks for the input!
    Bass is up with my son but I'll have him look into it.

  4. Yeah, that problem is almost always the result of improper/faulty grounding.
