Spider Jam Amp - model selector problem
by Grejam53 on 2011-11-06 07:46:44

My Spider jam amp 'model' selector knob jumps settings every now and then. Normally at the most inopportune time. It doesn't have a click stop for each setting. Is there a defect in this knob? If so, can I get a replacement pot?

If a potentiometer goes bad over time, it can cause the sort of behavior you described. If you're still within the first year (from the date of new product purchase receipt), you can get the amp looked at under warranty.

 

If you after that first year warranty period, you can purchase replacement parts from any of our Authorized Service Centers, but here's one that sells parts online and parts can be shipped (in the domestic U.S., that is): http://avalancheproaudio.com/2801.html

 

Most like it's the potentiometer for the Amp Model knob, but a tech could verify it in person.

Thanks for the reply and the link Kneehow. It's been over a year and I am handy with electronics, so I'll try order the replacement pot and installing myself.  I'll let you know how it works out.

One further note... a critique actually. Why doesn't line 6 make this selector knob with set stops for each position. It would make dialing in the selection much more precise and possible alleviate the pot going bad problem or at least extend the life of the pot?
