JP-8080 volume knob

Post by aphlux » Tue Mar 16, 2010 5:21 am

Im not a technical savvy person, and usually I just get all my electronic work done at a shop.

But, the Master Volume knob is loose now -.-;
It just functions fine, its just lose.
I was wondering if this was something I could do right at home real quick, if I ordered a spare knob?
Also, ordering the spare knob, anybody know of a site?

All help is appreciated =]

Yeah they do that - JP8000s aren't hot on build quality. They have a nice spot on top for effects boxes though - so you can add one on with a volume knob and use the effects box as volume control too. I had a frostwave sonic alienator welded to mine. :)

The nut can be loose. If so, no biggie, just reajust it.
