    I just picked up a NOS Popo Fuzz. It's the older 3-knob. Sounds great to me. The Sag is very scratchy at every turn of the knob. The dealer said to try adjusting the trim pot bias. I had to leave town and didn't yet have a chance to play around with that. Anyone have the scratchy pot experience on the Sag?

    The crackle is normal. Mine does it too.

    It's for the same reason that many ZVex pedals crackle (e.g Channel 2, SHO).

    Thanks for the response Flatscan. I have not owned ZVex pedals or any pedals that did that. I am digging the Fuzz on this pedal.

    Yes - it's one of my favorite fuzz pedals. Enjoy!
