gruntbox v4 sus knob buzz like a demon
« on: February 17, 2012, 06:23:11 PM »
OK so built a gruntbox and everything is great except that the sus knob has some horrible buzz to it. when you turn it up it just gets worse( it is there even at zero) checked all my connections. went over my wiring many many times. not sure what the issue is. This is only my third buidl so maybe there is an area that i over looked. can anyone point me in the right direction?

Grounding issue or cold solder joint?
