well my russian big muff is currently broken, due to the pots being in pieces i have tried to put them back together but they still wont work.

is there a way to bypass them ?, with perhaps solder?

sorry im a noob guy

i would go out and buy new pots, but i need it for a few hours time

any help would be fantastic

Post a picture of the back of the pot (inc. the wires attached) and me or one of the others will show you which ones to solder together.

if you want to bypass it couldnt you just take the wires that went to the pot and instead run them straight to the jack?

What did you do to that poor pot? Which one is it, I'll have a bit of a lookey at a schematic and see what I can find for you.

Its hard to tell from the pic which lug is the ground lug, but essentially one of the outside lugs is the ground, and the other two are in/out, so those two wires need to be soldered together. Looking at the other pot in the top corner, it looks like the left lug is the ground because it has heaps of wires coming into it. The other way to identify the ground lug is if it is soldered to the pot, or directly to the ground lug or shell of another pot.
