Cracklin and popping vol knob...


Recommended Posts

My bridge volume is crackling and popping when I turn it, similar to when the pots are corroded, But these are brand new and recently installed!


What can be the issue here? I've double-checked every solderjoint, and it's grounded fine on the casing of the pot, and the hot wire is soldered well too.

You should be able to fix the problem with a burst of contact cleaner spray onto/into the volume pot.


Its worth a try.I had that happening on an old Ibanez from mid 80's .

Just a drop of it and work the knob back and forth and it 's been good as new ever since.

Sure wouldn't hurt to try it
