crackling pot.

Postby marksalmon » 15 May 2012, 21:10

I built a Das Musikding 'HardOne' which is working, yet whenever I touch the volume knob it crackles like crazy. I've checked the connections, which all seem to be fine.

Any suggestions?

Is that a clone of the SHO? If so, the sound you're hearing is normal. Most people don't mind, since it doesn't (or at least shouldn't) happen while you're playing. "Crackle Okay!" :)
