Default Multi Deck volume pot

Recently I saw a multi deck volume pot that looked like an alps blue velvet on a few of the posts.

Where can I get this or any multi deck volume pot? Thanks for the help.

Milo

Thanks Peter.

I may be missing something, I only see stereo pots on percyaudio.com. Im looking for something on the order of six decks, or three stereo decks. You had a picture of one that had a few on it when you were describing how to extend the pots shaft with a plastic tube in the tools post.

Thank you for your help.

Milo

The likelyhood of finding a 6 deck pot is extremely low. There is a company that will assemble you one for about $125. If you want I will try to find their name.

You might try contacting Elma directly, they will sell you samples.

Also DACT Goldpoint are selling multiple deck attenuators/switches but prices are rather high.

That's what I had assumed but then I saw a few pictures of them on this forum. I know that alps makes a 6 ganged motorized pot but none of their distributers have them. I also don't know if it is one of their quality pots or not.

the product number is 16816MGA04 from alps

I guess because I saw pictures I just assumed that someone somewhere was selling them.

Thanks for the help.

Milo

Edit: We posted at the same time thanks for the info Peter.

Hi, you can get some six gang panasonic pots at the sight below, but these are very high quality parts and are very expensive for the one you want.

that is really pricey!

I want it though, it would be perfect if it were motorized.

thanks

You can try using digital pots. You can get free samples from www.maxim-ic.com

I was waiting for someone to bring that up.

I know that there will be too many opinions to count, and maybe this has already been covered (if so please excuse and direct). What are peoples opinions on the digital volume controls? I head an NAD with a digital control and when it scanned it made a high pitched whine.

Thanks for the help all.
