The pot is touching the output transforumer inside but I have electrical tape between each so there shouldn't be a problem right? Could it be anything else besides the pot??
Also at about 3/4 the turn it's really hard to turn, but will still turn and get louder..it's just alot harder to turn...are all pots like this???
