||ernie b. vol. pedal|
I've got a 17-year-old eb mono voloume pedal. It seems that, at long last, the pot is wearning out. What is recommendsed as a replacement pot? As I recall, they put Allen Bradley 250K pots in those. Where do I get those or is there a better choice? Also, what can anyone tell me about the knob on the side of the pedal? It appears to adjust the "throw" of the pedal -- whether the volume comes up quickly or more gradually. It does seem to affect tone as well. Speaking of tone -- can I mod pedal so that I don't lose signal quality as I lower the volume. It seems to load all the high end out as I turn down.

Clean the pots with contact cleaner spray.
Then think about replacing the pot, as the cleaner is a temporary (although perhaps quite a bit of time) fix.
Also check with a DVM for DC across the pedal. Pots are scratchiest if they have DC on them.
You might have a leaky cap on the output of the pedal feeding it.
