Mark III replacement pots

Post by beneharris » Sat Jul 15, 2017 1:54 pm

Hi guys, I'm in need of a replacement bass pot for my III red stripe. Mesa's website only has an audio taper, and I believe I need a log. Anybody have any suggestions as to where I might be able to locate this? Part # on the pot is 586821.

Hello,

Call Mesa directly and ask for that part number.

You may wish to purchase other front panel pots as well.

My experience with a MkIVa was that when one goes, the other are not far behind. Also, you may save on freight/mail costs. (And on time ... once you have the chassis out and on the bench, you might as well do all of them.)

Lastly, keep the receipt as part of the documentation if/when you ever wish to sell it.

Good luck.

Thanks, I've got an email into them currently. Just thought I'd do a bit more research in the meantime. The pot itself isn't bad, but the PO busted it in the "pull" position, so its neck is broken off. They do crackle a bit, so you're right, it is probably worth doing them all. Thanks for the tip!
