Default Panasonic Plastic Pots

Does anyone know where to find the EUWM series Panasonic Pots? They are very good sounding, but almost impossible to source........

TIA,

Hugh

I can't even find that part on their site... Do you have a specific part number to search by?

Schuro and Thel in germany used to sell them but stopped a few months ago.
Now Thel is offering their own series of "conductive plastic"-pots in a black box.

Its very odd indeed that no one is able to say why you cant get them anymore.
Might be worth contacting Panasonic directly.
Maybe they were to exclusive/expensive for the (consumer)-market?
When I think about it, the non-selected ones (matched to 1dB difference) were "only" 20.

They are quite good indeed; although not much superior in comparison with even an Alps RK27112. The only Panasonic plastic pot I own is sitting in an amp I built for my brother. Maybe I should sneek in and exchange it?

This is the only place I've seen a Panasonic motorised.

I don't know if it's the EUWM but surely expensive enough and 100K is not what you are after anyhow. Maybe if you ask them with a pretty please, they might reveal a source.

Cheers

Do something really well. See how much time it takes. It might be a product, a work of art, who knows? Then give it away cheaply, just because you feel that it should not cost so much, even if it took a lot of time and expensive materials to make it. - JC
