Hy guys. I have a problem with Klon Centaur I recently made using madbean instrunctions (sunking ver3).

Problem is that with NO gain settings (gain pot on zero) I still have a bit overdriven tone and not totally clean and sparkling tone. Month ago I made anoher Klon and it didn't have that kind of problem so I am in a big dillema and don't know what to do. I tried changing gain pot because when I measured resistance on first and third lug of gain pot it showed almost 0 resistance (0,1k or something) and not full resistance. When I took out old pot pot and measured it again multimeter showed full resistance normally (100k).

Can anyone who has a bit more experience than I help me with my problem?
Thanks in advance

sorry, it's been a while... let's see. Which half of the gain pot did you measure? If it was PA 1 I would check the 1.5k parallel to it. If it's PA2, then I don't know. Also, was this breadboarded or soldered?
