Need to find Alps dual audio pot

Postby Synthetech » Tue Mar 18, 2014 4:20 pm

I cant seem to locate a proper replacement pot for the volume control on a roland/boss SP 202.

It's just like this pot,

but needs to be 30mm long instead of 20mm so it can poke up high enough thru the chassis to get the knob on the end of it.




each resistor in it is 50k, and I assume it will be a audio taper.

Anybody know where to find this animal? Cant find at mouser or anywhere else on the net..
Anyone know of an exact replacement from another mfr.?

thanks for the suggestions..

mouser does not have a 50k dual pot that has a tall enough shaft.. it needs to be 30mm, and they only have 20mm shafts in dual 50k.


That ebay listing is ended.. and $14 ea. is a bit steep.

I think I will get the mouser one and it looks like I could fab up a riser board to lift the short pot up enough to pass thru the chassis so the knob will go on it.
using header pins, ic sockets and veroboard should do the trick....
