Support needed on tube amp...

Hi guys

I have a Laney IRT Studio tube amp which has 3 channels (Clean, Rhythm, and Lead)

The volume pot of the Clean channel started to make noise when I turn it. When i turn it full way back and forth for few times, it works better. I think it needs to be cleaned (or replaced).

The other weird thing is that when this volume pot is set to zero, i still hear the guitar sound !! is this issue related to the pot also or something else is wrong with the amp?

The other 2 channels work fine

'12 Gibson '58 Standard Reissue
'14 Fender American Special Stratocaster
'05 Ibanez RG320FM (With Upgrades)

Laney IRT Studio
Laney IRT112 CAB

Boss GT-8

Change the faulty pot, then see if problem persists.
