It will likely cause a nasty buzzing or harsh noise or series of noises while the live cable tip is grounded on something other than the contact inside the instrument. It will not ruin your guitar amplifier nor will it cause the material on the front of the speaker cabinet to tear.

How to Clean Your Bass Amplifier?

Just like any other devices, a bass amplifier needs to be cleaned properly in order to preserve its proper functioning and appearance. Aside from that, a bass amplifier also needs constant cleaning so that dust won’t harbor in it. Generally, cleaning a bass amplifier is not simple, because you need to ensure that its function will not be affected by how you cleaned it. If you own a bass amplifier, here are the steps on how to clean it affectively: • Switch off and unplug the amplifier. It is necessary to unplug the bass amplifier before you clean it. You should also wait until the bass amplifier cools down before cleaning it, especially if you have just used it. • Use a vacuum to clean the outside portion of the cabinet. Generally, bass amplifiers have cabinets with closed back types, compared to guitar amplifiers with open-back cabinets. While you are cleaning the outside portion of the cabinet, you should also observe for some sounds of debris, which could harbor inside and may affect the quality produced by the speakers of your bass amplifier. If your bass amplifier has a vent, then you can tilt the amplifier towards that side and vacuum it in order to remove the debris. • Use a rag made of cotton and wet it with a cleaning solution when you are cleaning the face portion of your amplifier. Do not spray the cleaning solution directly on your amplifier, because it can cause damage. Do not forget to clean under the knobs, because dust may also accumulate there. It helps if you turn the knobs to the extreme left and clean it underneath, then turn the knobs to the extreme right and clean it again. Through this method, you can ensure that everything is properly cleaned. Never use oil-based products in cleaning your amplifier. Only use a cleaning solution that is intended for your amplifier. In addition, it can also help if you will be constantly vacuuming the amplifier because it can also eliminate unusual odors from your amplifier.

What can you use to clean your guitar pot?

I take it you mean your volume and tone controllers, as these are enclosed should not need cleaning if they sound dirty when adjusting vol/tone, you will need switch/contact cleaner and anaeroduster, these are aerosol based and come with a fine plastic tube that fits into the nozzle, unplug your guitar, access the back of the tone/vol pot and spray the aeroduster into the pot and try the guitar to see if this has cleared the problem, if not then unplug, and use the switch/contact cleaner spray, spray into the pot and turn the controller at the same time, then use the aeroduster again and try the guitar to see if it has cleared the problem. If the problem persists then the controller may be damaged and need changing. (Aeroduster is an aerosol that is pressurised and used to blow dust off circuit boards etc.)
