    All the pots listed on that site are for push on knobs.Check and see if your's has push on or set screw type.If they are the latter,you will need different pots.
    Do you have PC mounted pots?All the pots there are also PC mount.You need to get inside your amp and see what you have first.Those prices are really high too,so beware.You can get those pots at a number of places cheaper for the same product.

    i think mine has set screw. i twisted the knob around and it has a little hole in the knob and there is a screw there.

    im not sure if it's mounted to the pcb or not. i've looked inside the amp before, the pot isnt ON the pcb, the pcb is in the middle of the amp, the pots have wires that go to the pcb.

    here's the original link, i igave you the link to the marshall pots. am i sposed to be looking at one of these instead? http://store.metroamp.com/index.php?cPath=22_33&osCsid=q3tbuq8odlcf25u4kqr172f164

    I would get over to the technical section of this forum and summon john phillips....he is a marshall tech in Scotland and has the marshall line pretty much down. If you want to be factory correct (as I would).
