    Okay, so I got a Heartfield DR5 off of fleaBay and it arrived today... with a broken toggle switch.

    I was hoping it wouldn't be nearly as difficult as it is, but I'm afraid it's not looking easy...

    From what I can gather, it's a 4PDT, on-on switch. I'm not sure if it was long or short toggle, but that doesn't really matter.
    The part number, "F4TN03" brings up Korean websites and that gets me nowhere.

    I checked out THIS SWITCH at bitcheslovesmyswitches.com (Real website, great guy to deal with!).
    Would that work? It's not a panel or PCB mount, but I can't seem to find any other than solder lug.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    I just replaced my entire preamp on the same bass due to pot stems I broke over 20 years ago. Finally found a preamp on Ebay and got around to doing the replacement. You're more than welcome to the whole thing if you'd like to strip it of parts you need. I have no need for it anymore.

    No kidding! Especially considering the fact that these come up at a rate of 1 every 20 years.
    QweziRider, you rock!
