Here for the gear

I've had to fix a ton of these lately. It's not a normal pot, but a 600 ohm attenuator (depending on the revision). If you have a vintage one, it can be unmounted, the securing tabs pulled back, and then you can clean it.

I recommend the caig deoxit 100% solution on a foam brush, to clear away the junk, then deoxit Fader once that dries.

If you have the reissue, they have semi-sealed PEC pots. you can clean the front pot, but not sure about the back unless you can get past that glue. It's usually cheaper to buy a new pot from Studio Electronics. It's 85 bucks though. An alternative if you don't care about keeping things original is to get the Hairball Audio attenuator. Those are absolutely fantastic.
