'''STOP'''''italic text'' Before you pull out the soldering iron try this. Go to your local electronics parts store and get a can of Electronic control cleaner. It used to be known as "Tuner Cleaner." # 1.Unplug the amp 2.Open the case and locate the control in question, the master volume control will usually have two sections that is two pots siamesed together. 3.Find an opening in the case of each section, very few are totally sealed, and with the extension tube on the spray can squirt some cleaner in each section while rotating the volume control knob. 4.While your inside there give the rest of the controls and switches a shot. It won't hurt them and they probably need it anyway. This will cure 99% of volume control problems. It is also a lot less dangerous and cheaper than replacing the control!
