yamaha slide knob for replacement (yamaha motif)

Postby midi2 » Thu Aug 04, 2011 11:02 am

I need a repacemnt plastic slide knob for my yamaha motif (original) but i haven't figured out yet where to get one if there are available :roll:

After some searching I realized that these knobs were used in various yamaha synths from 89 till 2001
including V50,SY22/35/55/77/85/99 ,TG77 ,EX5/7 , S03/30/80/90 and YAMAHA MOTIF first generation

I find that calling large multi-national corporations like Yamaha is faster than email. I would call your local Yamaha service branch. There should be a contact number listed on the Yamaha website under your country's support page.

I have bought SY slide knobs from Yamaha just about two months ago.

Yamaha tends to keep an excellent stock of most synth parts going all the way back to the original DX7 MkI. There are some things that are no longer available, but that slider button should be an easy find. The first place to check for parts is the original synth manufacturer. And I too have found that phone calls are far more effective than emails.

I've not tried it but if you've got the part # and are a USA consumer:
