ADA Power Amps > T100s

Scratchy Pots

(1/2) > >>

My T100s has some serious scratch in the pots when I turn the volume up or down. I have tried cleaning them, which works for a short time, but I feel like I better just replace them.

Question: Can I use any ol' volume pot from the electronics store, or are these 'special' in some way?
Question Too: Am I looking for Audio taper pots?

Any info would be greatly appreciated

Got a pic of them,my T100S is in my rack and it's pain to get it out.

 :thumb-up: Right!

I'll get a pic for ya, no worries. Thanks man

Here y'go!

I opened up the unit and took several pix, but they all looked terrible. So, I decided to take the pots out to get a better look. Once I had them out, I sprayed them LIBERALLY with D-Oxit, wiped off the excess, and ran each pot through about a thousand cycles back & forth.

Problem scratchy pots, smooooooth as a baby's butt.  :metal:

Pix for posterity ;)

TIP: Make your pix 800 pixels wide max

Those look like fairly standard audio taper pots, by the way, 50KOhm.  They should be easy to find and replace if the scratchiness comes back.
