Hi N1ESE,
Just curious which volume pot did you order from Japan?

Cheers,

Just a basic Alps unit. I really like Alps and it was a decent price on eBay with free air mail shipping.

I hope it was a reliable vendor, ebay is pretty famous for knock off alps pots. From what I read the performance is hit or miss.

Yeah, this seller should be safe. He's been a member almost as long as I've been an eBay member (12 years) and has over 3700 feedback (99.6%).

Sounds like you're safe. Which Alps did you end up choosing? RK27?

Yup, 100K - will see what I actually get though as it was only $8 with free shipping.

That is a good price, be curious to see how long the trans-global shipping takes though.

Sadly, based on what I am experiencing, I bet it will arrive from Japan long before my Edcor's arrive. No ETA from Edcor yet, just "they will ship when built". I ordered a bulk-pack of resistors once from Japan and they took 8 days. I suspect I will see the pot by the end of the week at the latest.

Nate, the pot arrived this morning. Customs form is dated 11/4/08 so that's about 6 to 7 business days to arrive here in NH.

However, it is not quite the model I was expecting. This is marked with a model number of 811G. Not sure quite what this is and can't seem to find it in my Alps datasheets. It is, however, a dual 100K audio pot and housed in a "blue velvet" case with a 6mm shaft.

Can you post a picture of the label? Does it say 100KAX2 on it?
