    I just installed a Nordstrand MM 2 band preamp and I noticed that the treble control is not working at all. No cut, no boost. This is a used preamp but otherwise it functions correctly. Any ideas as to why this would be happening? I checked the wiring per the Nordstrand wiring diagram and it is correct.

    I have no idea. But all of my experiences with Nordstand have been positive. A quick email with some pics and I bet you'll get an answer. It may take a couple/few days to respond. But they usually do what they can when they can in my experience.

    I’ll get some today after I get off work.
     
  5. All three connections one the pot terminals good?
    Check the resistance of the pot while sweeping, see of the pot actually functions.

    Connections look good. I’ll see if I can get a reading on the pot.
     
  7. You’ll have to remove the leads from the pot (de-solder) to get an accurate reading...in case you weren’t aware. I’m not sure of your experience - not trying to be a smart-Alec

    No problem. I don’t have much experience with electronics, especially active systems.
