My 35 year old SS Peavey has scratchy pots. Still sounds good when I'm playing but I'm worried about dependability. How do you clean pots?
I've used contact cleaner and it may be better for a while, but the pot eventually becomes scratchy again just like before. Buying a new pot is actually cheaper than buying the can of cleaner usually and the problem is solved.I've had success with contact cleaner. It takes some work, though.
