    Alps? Clarostat? But probably only in high volumes--whatever you
    want at a high enough volume or price. Seems like mechanical
    potentiometers are going the way of the buggy whip. (Used only by
    sadists/masochists??) Both trimmer front-panel pots are becoming more
    and more rare in the equipment I see.

    Cheers,

  2. Thanks, Tom.
    Anyone else have any thoughts?
     
  3. I was hoping someone else would answer, but...

    My experience is the same as Tom's; I've searched for these things from many
    distributors, but no luck. There appear to be three choices: don't use
    them, or buy them by the tens of thousands, or buy them at incredibly
    inflated prices for a very limited choice of styles and values from
    unreliable small-quantity suppliers like Stew-Mac.
