1976 V2 EH Electric Mistress pot?

Post by fernieite »

Hi guys,

My tech has determined that the rate pot on my 1976 V2 Electric Mistress needs to be replaced. However, he's having a hard time finding the correct replacement.

Do you know where I could get one?

Here's what he said: "It looks like the rate pot is open. I looked for one online and can't seem to find the specific one for this pedal. Obsolete, I guess. It's a 1 Meg reverse audio D-shaft pot. I hunted around on the Internet but couldn't find a match."

Btw, I've already reached out to Ron Neely and Ralf Metzger, but I haven't heard back from them yet.

Thanks a lot.

Yeah, without hunting NOS stuff you're not gonna find that pot. There are three things that are *less* common that when combined make that a rarity: reverse audio, D-shaft, and PCB mount. Add to that you'll need a 3/8" bushing and probably want it to look vintage correct and you've got problems.

This is about the closest I can find, but no D shaft: https://smallbear-electronics.mybigcomm ... one-clone/
