Home Forums Design and Building 2 Stroke Amplifier Design and Building Transformer Orientation… yet again! Re: Re: Transformer Orientation… yet again!


Bah – something seems odd lately :(

The volume pot has started acting odd; hard to explain really!

The amp seems noisy, particularly the bass/lower notes sounding wrong/fuzzy?, and it’s louder than usual – even with the volume on 0 the guitar still plays out loudly…

If I put a little pressure on the volume knob, ie push it “up” a little, then the sound and volume goes back to normal and everything is fine again? but obviously something is wrong and I can’t hold the volume knob while playing!

Any ideas on this would be a great help! Also, how would I go about making a cap discharge tool to help me work on it when I need to?
