The volume knob for the bridge pickup on my Marcus Miller is not working, at all. When turned there is no noticeable difference in the volume and/or overall tone of the bass. What could most likely be the cause of this?
Wire came loose is my guess.
maybe a dead pot?
pot could be bad, wire could have been knocked loose, or the pot may just be really dirty and need a cleaning, try taking the cover off the back and looking, but if you really dont feel confident then take it to a music store.
ok so if the pot is bad, on average, how much would it cost to replace/install it?
Sometimes, if the knob is held to the pot by a screw, the screw can come loose and the pot will stop working, i'm not sure if the marcus miller has knobs held with screws but its worth a check, and new pots are usually around £6 i think
