Really the best ones are real Crate pots. The actual part number should be stamped on them, in the format like 70-103-26 or similar. Search ebay and other Crate sources.

Pots for amp makers are almost always custom made for them. MAtching the original pot for footprint, shaft and bushing dimensions etc will be tough.

Are these the oddball shaft sizes, such as in between 1/8" and 1/4"? I may have used ones if you have the values.

I agree with using originals except they have gone out of business last year. None of the places I usually order from have them. Not expecting them to get any more for now.

I hinted at it earlier, so I will be direct: what is the part number you are looking for? It is stamped on the rear of your part.

Thanks for your response Enzo. The customer has decided not to pursue further. Very much appreciated though.
