    Well, I'm looking for some pots. I'm having trouble finding some 10k ohm linear CW-CWW, CW, and CCW, 6 pin, 6mm shaft, pc mount pots. Whew!

    Anybody know of a good source other than Mouser?

    Thanks but Allparts only carries pots for instruments and not amps.

    Anyone else have a source?

    Yea, I checked them also. No luck. :crying:

    The pots I'm looking for are for my Nightbass. The input gain and stereo master level pots are in need of replacement. I can't gig with it anymore as I can't trust the pots to not cut out on me.

    Looks like you'll have to do a bit of hacking. Looking for a specific part in a specific format is usually very frustrating... unless you want 10,000 of something.

    I don't know what you mean by "CW-CWW, CW, and CCW." Are you looking for a stacked pot? Does it solder directly into a PC board? Good luck looking, but if you don't find it, there should be plenty of suitable parts that will fit with a bit of "finessing."

    I'm starting to get the idea I will have to use "different" parts if I can't find what I need.

    Anyways, the CW = clockwise and CCW = counter clockwise. One pot I need is both. It is a linear dual pot where one side increases in resistance as the other decreases. Oy! I'm so screwed. :( BTW, they all mount to a PCB.

    I'm going to contact several of the wholesalers and see what they can do for me as I can't find what I need in their catalogs. I guess I'll have to hope for a little bit of luck. (sigh)
