Those cheap ones are nice, they just don't last long and are not best transparency, yet still clean enough. But they show the way, and the channel balance is right. Before 40ish positions no switch pot is really smooth in volume handling is another thing they lack VS best.

Well done. They look like working as the silencers they mount for aircon pump units on brackets.

quite flexible .... I think that if you dont screw them tight they wont work as they can, they must be a little tight ...
between screws its all rubber ..
