Default Tone pots for vintage Luxman

Hello all, new member here. I recently got a really nice Luxman L-430 from a gent in Ontario Canada. Unfortunately, the packaging was not adequate, and the tone pots have broken off at the bushing. I need to source some linear 50k pots with knurled 6mm diameter 25mm long shafts. I've been looking high and low, and so far no real matches.
I've considered buying volume pots, which match the mechanical specs just to hang the knobs on the amp, hehe.

Thanks in advance!

Hi there,
you are right, this potentiometer is not easy to find... Mainly because of its shaft length. I did however find an Alpha potentiometer series in which you could find a suitable drop-in replacement. Take a look at the pages for the 16mm series here: http://www.taiwanalpha.com/english/p_e_27-6.htm

In the top right, select the page you want to go to, (page 3). the type is RV16A01F-20. You'll have to study their part numbering in order to determine which model you want, but there is apossibility that Mouser might stock it.

I'll post agin if I find anything else! cheers,
the "reel" electrodude
