Cleaning Vintage Pots & Switches On The Sequential Circuits Pro-One


The Sequential Circuits Pro-One may be one of the best-sounding classic monosynths, but they’re also old enough that the pots and switches will be scratchy, unless they’ve been cleaned or replaced.

The issue of what to do with scratchy pots and faders is a recurring topic of debate in synth forums, with some advocating for the quick fix of spraying a little Caig’s Deoxit D5 into the problematic part and others arguing that the only real solution is to take the component apart and give it a thorough cleaning. 

In this video, Mindburner demonstrates how he disassembled the worst offenders on his Pro-One to get them working as expected.
