Hi all,
I need at least three of these potentiometers and they must be bought in the UK (or Europe at the furtherest.)
My usual suppliers; RS, Rapid, Maplin don't stock them, are there any more suppliers I have missed

Thanks for looking.

why must it be in europe?
AMB audio shop
Tangent's Parts Shop
you can normally only buy them in multiples of 50 or so - amb and tangent just do that, and offer them for DIYers
overseas shipping is quite fast, and you can conveniently pay with paypal (I ordered once from tangent, but amb has the same high reputation)

I am not the most patient sort and the last two times I have made international orders my packages have taken over a month to arrive

Looks like it's going to be tangent, I could do with a few ADAPTLE boards anyway

LOL. It's more like 700 or 1400 pieces a pop. I get them through an authorized Alps distributor to prevent counterfeits, and the lead-time is something like 3 months, because it's a special-order item not normally stocked by Alps.

Try Farnell (uk.farnell.com). They stock a wide range of ALPS pots. I believe you should easily get them from there, as the CAPS for my SOHA just arrived from Farnell UK

Thanks for thatone, I checked with Farnell but they want over £2 for each pot (cheaper with tangent/AMB).
