Vishay Sfernice P11 potentiometers
 
Hi, has anyone here used these? I need a 4 gang pot for my preamp but they seem pretty thin on the ground. Looking at the P11 datasheet it says they are "modular", does this mean I can get single pots and stick them together to make a quad pot or do you have to buy them already made?

I tried asking a distributor, who told me to try Vishay, who told me to try a distributor....

They're the ones! But, it seems they only sell single or dual. The datasheet says that up to 7 modules can be used together, but I can't workout if they can just buy two dual or four singles and stack them together myself or if they have to be specially ordered that way?

Look at the specs again, at the order number details. You specify how many modules are stacked on your pot.

Thanks BigE, I saw that, but I'm not sure it answers my question about whether you can stack them yourself or just buy them that way. Though seeing as they don't have any type of assembly instructions I'm starting to expect it's probably the latter...:(

I've got a couple of dual 20k P11s in front of me, I can't see how they'd stack without major surgery.

Thanks pinkmouse, I'd best start looking for an alternative as I can't see anywhere that sells the 4 gang versions...
