Hi!

Some of my amplifiers that I don't use that often have developed crackling sound when the volume controls are use.

What is the best way of maintaining them regularly.

Some of the suggestions that i recieved offline are as follows and each one has been run down by the next guru who then proposes his favourite method!!

1. CRC contact cleaner will clean but supposedly corrodes the tracks

2. WD 40 will lubricate but not clean.

3. Heated coconut oil!!

4. Machine oil to lubricate.

5. Change pots whenever they crackle, a bit difficult for 20-30 year old amps where equivalents are not available

6. Deoxit from grabmore.in
a. Buy HOSA D100S2 DeoxIT D100 Contact Cleaner Aeorsol Spray with cheapest price at Grabmore.in - Online Shopping of Musical Instruments in India.

b. Buy HOSA CAIG DeoxIT SHIELD Contact Protector, 5 Spray, 5 oz with cheapest price at Grabmore.in - Online Shopping of Musical Instruments in India.

c. Buy HOSA D5S6 DeoxIT Contact Cleaner Maximum Strength Aerosol Spray with cheapest price at Grabmore.in - Online Shopping of Office Products in India.


The reviews for Deoxit are very good, but which is the one to buy?

Regards

Gopal
