what would cause this, just using a couple of the channels more than the others? again there is no sound difference, and they all turn nice and smooth, just a few seem to have different tightnesses.

its teflon on teflon, with use they become looser.. my channels that I use the most are looser feeling. The 5,6th channels are tighter.
if you mix it up and keep wearing in each pot they will be consistent. this is not a potentiometer quality issue.
whether there is a trick to getting them back to b4 their break-in period without buying new ALPS pots, I dont know.
