    Hello

    I have an SVTIIP (made in '93) bass preamp with a broken slide pot in the eq section.

    I've removed the damaged pot and found the markings "Alpha" (which I believe is the brand name) and the spec "B50K".

    The pot measures about 35mm in length.

    I called Ampeg and they no longer stock it. I've done some Googleing and I can't find the same model.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Might try these guys http://www.lselectronics.net/ and see if they can help or point you in the right direction. I believe a couple of the guys from the SLM Ampeg days still work there.

    Looks like a plastic automotive vacuum cap would be pretty close, at least from off stage?

    Thanks B!

    With a dip in white paint, it may be the ticket.

    I have even seen them in white already in the local parts stores before. I think they were in the "Help" catalog (misc trim/special parts) most stores had that line.

    Just came to me, used for carb port caps and HVAC vacuum controls.

    Thanks again!

    I will look into it soon. I think there are a couple of guys in the SVT-2 Appreciation thread who would like to know - if we find a close match.
