Tip & How-To about Music
The most common problem with guitar amplifiers
and other electronics that are making noise or cutting out
or sticking and not working correctly is a simple fix...
I use Radio Shack electronics spray contact cleaner
for most of my basic repairs
in the pictures posted I show the basics you need....
some screw drivers, basic knowledge, paper towels,
electronics spray contact cleaner, and a knife
First I carefully remove the nobs (volume control, tone control, etc...)
I use napkins to mask the area and keep from scratching the surface
Then I carefully spray into the (control} and work in back and forth....
the Best way is to spray directly into the potentiometer
that requires access to the internal chassis
on a quality pot there is a Notch that you want to spray into
on a standard pot just spray....
this will repair any scratchy noise or sound that cuts out
on guitar and bass amplifiers,
also can be applied to many other common basic sound problems
I hope this helps someone out?
