I hav a Silvertone sslb11 bass that needs a new volume pot and don't know wich one to buy. I don't see any part numbers or values printed on the pot. Does anyone know part numbers, brand, or...


I recommend checking music stores in your area for that, it doesn't have to be any specific rating of impedence. Depending on brand, I see guitars with anything from 50 ohms to 250 ohms. This only allows a faster cutoff on volume than others. The most critical action is to have a smooth taper, meaning a straight volume rise or decline versus one that goes down slowly or quickly and suddenly cuts off. Most any guitar volume control from a music store will work just fine. In case I confused you, ohms is the rating of the control, the taper or smoothness is classed as A, B, or C. A is normally for volume controls and B is used mostly for tone controls. Knowing that should give you insight insight to the difference of the controls.

Wire diagram samick gregg bennett guitar


Here is the wiring diagram for a 2 humbucker, 2 volume, 2 tone, 3-way switch setup. The wires off the pickup may be a little different. Just attach the lead wire to the arm of the pot and the ground to the ground on the top of the pot. Should be very strait forward.

I bought a used SR300DX bass guitar, whenever i turned up the volume and it had alot of static noise. i checked the wire and they are all ok, i think i have a bad pot. what should i do?


it is a very common problem with electric basses and guitars and does not necessarily need changing. It is possible to clean the pot using a spray cleaner/ lubricant. I use Servisol Super 10, but others recommend DeOxit, if you can find it. Do not use a general purpose spray such as WD40, as it is slightly sticky so will cause a build up of dirt over time.

You will need to remove the rear control cavity cover and spray the cleaner into the opening on the pot, near where the leads connect. Turn the pot quickly a few times. Do all the pots whilst you're in there. Test with an amp before replacing the cavity cover. Repeat if it still hasn't fixed it. If a second application doesn't work then you'll probably need to replace it so write down the numbers on the back of the pot and order a new pot from a guitar supplier such as WD Music. If you're comfortable with a soldering iron it should be straight forward to remove the wires and swap them over to the new pot. If not, you'll need to take it to your local repair man.

No sound when on overdrive


I am guessing that an IC is at fault. You don't really mean something like "no sound when switching to channel two" do you? If that's the case it could be a defect in a pot such as the volume pot. I have worked on hundreds of Marshall amps over the years. You can email me at computerlen@hotmail.com anytime for help if you want.

I bought a yamaha electric it has two double pick ups and a single in the middle the volume knob was no good so i changed it when i opened it up they had the wiring all messed up it has a five pos. switch...


my guess is two positions at one end work(aka 1 and 2, or 4 and 5)? if yes, then 2 of the pickups are wired wrong. (if 1 and 2 work, which are the forward positions, then the middle and bridge pickup are wired wrong, etc.) the problem is there is a variety of 5way switches that are different. i would guess yours is "import" style. are there 8 lugs in a single row on the back of the switch? if yes, you probably have an import switch. best i can do in text is tell you that the middle two lugs are common. this means one goes to the volume pot, and there is probably a little jumper between the two lugs as well. now there are 3 lugs on either side of those 2 common lugs. one set of 3 will probably run to the tone pot in some fashion or be empty. the other set of 3 lugs is for the pickup lead wires. it sounds like at least one or two of those lugs are empty but shouldnt be, or are wired wrong. i cant tell you colors of your wires without seeing it, but this is how it should be, with the exception that the tone knob will probably be on the bottom 3 lugs somewhere. 1 would be the neck pickup, 2 the middle, and 3 the bridge hope this helps, feel free to post a pic of your wiring, etc xadioriderx.jpg

On my squier strat the volume doesnt come out through theamp at all[i know it's not the amp or cable cuz i've hooked others things up to it to make sure]. Everytime i push and hold the volume knob at 10...


It is not clear if the volume knob you are talking about is in the amp or the guitar... SINCE you said you verified the amp is OK I have to assume the volume control you are talking about is in the guitar and my answer is based on that...

I SUSPECT that the resistance element and/or the wiper in the volume pot is damaged. One other possibility is the soldering of a wire to the volume pot may be bad. If you are competent with a soldering iron you could replace the pot yourself or take it to a competent guitar shop for repair. I would myself suggest you open the electronics and look for anything obviously wrong. I have ALSO seen one other problem where one lead of a pot is touching the CONDUCTIVE paint in the cavity where the controls are. If the shaft nut becomes loose and the pot slightly rotates this can happen, grounding out the signal.

Output jack


Have you tried another cable between amp and guitar? Usually the cable goes bad first. Have you tried another amp or possibly tried another guitar on your rig? If this still indicates that your guitar's Standard 1/4" TS Jack is noisy, remove the oval cover over the jack and check the solder joints for the wiring. Follow the wires back to the tone and volume pots and check those solder joints. If everything is secure...Plug in, power up and check for noise while turning the volume pots stop to stop. If the pots make a scratching noise, shut down rig and unplug the guitar. Get a can of spray contact cleaner with a small extension tube (available at electronic shops) to spray in the pots while turning them. (May have to remove pots fom the guitar to get at small openings on side of pot can.) Spray jack and test for noise. Jack STILL
noisy...If you can solder...unwire old jack, remove from guitar, take to electronic shop, match to Standard 1/4" TS Jack, install in guitar, resolder wire connections and test. If you cannot solder...take guitar to
a reputable shop or dealer that does this repair. Good Luck! P.S. The
spray contact cleaner can be used on the amp jack, pots and switches
too...just make sure the amp is unplugged from the power supply before
doing any spraying.

Where can i buy the proper volume pot for my alesis sr 16?


If you are willing to pay actual cost for shipping, I have an SR-16 with a broken screen that i could send you to salvage parts from. I bought it, I believe in December of 07 & other than the squished screen, I believe it to be in great shape. I just bought another one instead of fixing this one, so I certainly don't need it. Email me if you are interested. My guess is that USPS shipping would be like 2 or 3 bucks,as long as you are in the states.
