When you move the pots or when it's sitting still?
The noise with the pots is normal -- DC across the pot.

Hmmmm did this ever get sorted?

I have the same problem. My rooster has started to crackle and hiss when plugged in (sat still) and almost drowns out the guitar ???

Any ideas guys or does it need to go in for a tinker?
