Default looking for 40 turn potentiometers

Hello, there was an article done called "Put a tiger in your amp!" by Dejan V. Veselinovic suggesting to replace the original potentiometers in old Amplifiers with "40 turn trim pots". I have scoured the internet and can't find any with more then 25 turn. Anyone know of a source for these 40 turn?

Thanks

Hmmmm, I have a bunch of 40-turn linear trimpots. I'll check the value tonight...

Cheers,

Does he state why? I see no reason why 25 turn pots wouldn't work just as well.

I'm with the 'Mouse on this one. Digi-Key is your friend. Even a 10-turn provides decent fine-tuning.

SmarmyDog,

Just out of curiosity, how much are you asking for those pots. You can email me if with an answer if you'd like.
