DON'T DO IT MAN!
How can you think of risking the damage to your vintage wig collection by removing them from the hermetically seal display cases?
IT WAS YOU!!!!!!!! I KNEW IT ALL ALONG BUT NOBODY WOULD BELIEVE ME!!!!!!!
I got in touch with the builder...it seems that the spec pots (identical to the TB) just aren't that good. I am going to try to reach out to a couple other RE-303 owners and confirm. I will keep everyone posted.
