    Bought this Muff years ago at a garage sale for $10, it was broken. What I discovered is that the way in which the pots were mounted to the circuit board, once installed in the enclosure, caused the circuit board to bend slightly. Over time this caused some of the traces to crack and fail. I would repair a failed trace with "point to point" wiring, until the next one failed. Once the circuit board finally stabilized, I realized that the pots were causing all kinds of problems. Finally got around to replacing all the pots yesterday, and success. Stable, awesome, Big Muff fuzzies. So I made a video. Like to see it? Here it comes……
