Should the Dry knob make noise in the signal while turning it?

Does anyone one else’s @origineffects Cali76 CD dry knob make a lot of noise when turning it? Sounds like a scratchy pot, but for some reason I thought that’s typical of some knobs like those... there’s no noise when playing. It’s only during turning the knob.

    A classic, what I love is how many amazing songs were recorded on this guitar and the fact that you can recognize the sound of it so easily.

    It’s a one of a kind musical icon. There’s nothing like it! And so versatile. I hope to always have one, at least borrowable nearby if I can’t own it :)

    The unique sound is so identifiable, but for me personally, cranking out some SRV sounds on my neck pup is where the love for my Strat comes from .. I can’t get that sound anywhere else.

    It's all about the sound. It's the most unique sounding electric guitar IMO. Instantly recognizable. Most electric guitars sound like, well, electric guitars- but a Stratocaster sounds like a Stratocaster. God bless you, Leo Fender.

    It's the best 1st stage drive I've ever tried. I got it after I was super disapointed with the morning glory. Needless to say...it's always on and it's never leaving my board. It's super attack responsive and plays easily. Sounds great with any amp.

    Always on, first in the chain, compression as smooth and clean as it gets. My clean tone is this + JHS Prestige, then my money drive tone is Cali + Prince of Tone.
