I don't know where he bought them, but the electronic goldmine is selling audio potentiometer assortment bags for $2, each of which contains one 10K Noble as well as a bunch of other ****. Otherwise, Percy sells them for $20.

I bought one recently fra a Danish retailer who has some left from a stock that is actually more than 10 years old. So it is NOS, so to speak.
After installing it in a diy preamp it did very well for a month but then it started making scratching noise when turned up/down. What can be the reason for that?

I don't know the pot this discussion is about, but the reason for any pot making scratching noises can be a dust particle that managed to get inside the (possibly not perfectly sealed) pot. Trying to pulverize the particle by turning the pot a hundred times or so sometimes helps. If the reason for the bad contact isn't a dust particle, but some sort of dirt film or corrosion, trying to wipe it off by turning the pot repeatedly might help as well.

it is very easy to take the Noble pot apart. spray it with contact cleaner and assemble again. works every time

they tend to get a bit scratchy after a few years.

Well, if you can take that thing apart, this is clearly the better solution.

I know this thread is old, but still worth trying:

I am searching for the Noble black 10K stereo potentiometer for more than 1 year now. My ancient commercially built ASR Emitter 1+ from the year 1991 uses it, but here in the Netherlands as wel as the bigger online shops don't have this value anymore.

Can someone sell me 1, or does someone know a shop where they have them?
