    Don't know what you mean on the knob, but crackling/cutting in and out means a bad dashpot in my experience.

    They're incredibly easy to replace if you've got any soldiering skills.
  3. Sounds like a good time to get a new preamp. I suggest Aguilar or EMG. Who knows, it could be an easy fix, but your bass will sound better with a new preamp anyway.
