I asked a question about this a while ago, about my amp's volume cutting out. At first I thought it was the cab, but now I'm not so sure.

When I'm playing, especially on the lead channel, the amp won't be working at full power/volume. Occasionally you'll hear a crackling sound followed by a huge jump in volume. 90% of the time it seems to only be putting out half the volume it should. I'm thinking it might be a bad tube, bad pot, something along those lines. Anybody ever have this happen or know what I should look at?

Well, I know I had this problem with my old guitar actually. The volume knob became extremely sensitive, and many times, the volume dropped to about half when turning it. Turned out to be a faulty pot.

Do you get that scratching kinda sound (like someone is breating into a microphone) when turning the volume knob? If so, your pot is the culprit.
If not, then I'm not sure.. No electronics wiz...

Well if it is the tubes, what is the best way to find out if they are bad?
