My sone has posted the catalog sheet I promised on


Thanks for that info. I saved that .jpg for reference.
I never knew there were that many variations. I once thought there were
only two kinds of pots, linear and audio. Maybe that was true on the old
tube gear, but not these days.

What catalog did that come from?

As an update on my Altec Lansing preamp. Altec no longer makes any of
their electronics, or even has parts. The phone number is not even valid
anymore. They only make speakers now.

I think I can glue some shaft onto the broken stub, so that's what I'll
have to do. At least the pot is still good. In the meantime, I'll be
watching ebay for an identical model which is being sold for parts.
Often they sell cheaply. I plan to keep this preamp, so spare parts
would be good to have.
