Blue channel going crazy on Synergy SLO Module

Post by Dark Helmet » Fri Feb 02, 2018 8:34 pm

Just got this a few days ago and tonight the blue channel went full blast when I switched from red to blue. There is decent volume when I turn the gain and volume for that channel down and when I raise it it starts to squeal and gets cranking loud. Tried swapping tubes in the module and the SYN1 and nothing changed.

hmm that strange , It sounds like a tube problem but that didn't fix it ?

do you another mod to test in SYN1

only thing i have seen on other modules (usually the DZL for some reason)
is the mid -pot or one of the the pots and the ground .

I actually have to admit i have seen issues with the mods more than should be for the amount they have out there and the QC in US

Well I'm sending this back for repair or replacement. I hope this is not a chronic issue with QC, because I dig how it sounds. They did mention that it could be a broken pot.

With both the gain and volume pot all the way off it still transmits a signal and relatively loud too. When I start to turn the gain up it goes ape s*&t.
