Tremoverb replacement depth pot

Post by Rusty » Wed Dec 21, 2016 8:44 pm

I need to replace the depth adjustment pot on the trem. Does anyone happen to know what type of pot it is exactly? I have the part number (#592152 ) from the manual, but I think that it was numbered as such from the supplier for mesa amps that way. Cant find it for sale elsewhere under that number.
I admit I haven't called mesa yet for a replacement because I am assuming they will charge something unreasonable. I just want to add it to my next electronics parts order for other things I'm doing.

If you can afford Mesa amps & to live in Palo Alto I don't think a $15 pot is going to break you. Just call Mesa. I've had them go through a couple of my amps & their repair / parts prices are actually very reasonable. (including my T-O-V, which got the LDR update & a recap)

Nice.
My question wasn't answered actually. Not sure how you missed that. It was actually a just suck it up and pay Mesa response and because I lived somewhere where I should be able to afford it.
Nice

oh, sorry. I'd contact mesa anyways. They can probably tell you the specs. Plus you never even got a quote from there. You just assume it is going to be unreasonable.

That's true. Was going to call today but got caught up at work. I'd also like to get a slightly better quality one than the original if possible even if it comes out to be more.

I concede that my first comment was a little dickish. Deeman said what I was trying to say in a nicer fashion, that you should call & ask before assuming. They are nice folks there.

If the pot is just noisy & not actually smoked, try hitting it with some DeoxIT. Stuff works wonders for noisy contacts.

It's not a big deal.
I'm going to follow through with Mesa tomorrow.
I have to pull out on the pot and get it in just the right position for it to work. It's not scratchy at all, but I will shoot some of the deoxit I have in there and see if that does anything.

My TOV had a treble pot that wasn't working right. I went the TOV manual and found the Mesa POT part # and ordered from their website.
Very inexpensive, shipping was more than the cost of two POTs.

Before I ordered, I tried hitting treble POT in question with contact cleaner and there was no change to the issue.

Mesa is very reasonable with prices for parts. A few times they sent me parts free.
The fact that Stephen appears from nowhere, is sentenced to death in an emotional public trial without anyone interfering at all and is then altogether forgotten as if nothing happened, is already suspicious.
