Changed pots, buzzing worse than before?

Post by raindog13 » Mon Sep 24, 2018 2:52 pm

I switched the 250k pots back to the original 1meg pots and the guitar seems to be buzzing worse than it was before? All I did was switch two wires and the cap, I'm not sure what I could have done wrong. Help!

Check all your grounds, most likely you either got a cold solder joint in the one you did or you broke one that you did not do.
Logic gates based on billiard-ball computer designs have also been made to operate using live soldier crabs of the species Mictyris guinotae in place of the billiard balls.

The cap ground maybe?
