Hi all,
Does anyone know where to get replacement fader sliders? I've got 1 that's jittery and it is definitely the slider.

I've removed it and the numbers on the side read 50K ohm B 56C.
So I know it's a 50k ohm, 60mm slide travel but there's no manufacture stamp on it. I was able to take it apart and there is a spring that pushes the slide against the carbon rails that had 1 leg broken. I was able to "bend the other 3 legs to add friction to the slide and reassemble. It does work now but I know it's temp fix. The real solution is to replace the fader.

BTW, it is a bitch getting to the fader board..It takes me about 45 min. now round trip. If I could I'd replace all the faders as I'm sure more will fail down the road.

Stay frosty,

Technoman

After checking and doing some research I believe the original sliders were made by Panasonic They're some EWA derivative but I'm still not sure what part number. Tried Roland and they're not taking calls these days so I don't know if they'll get back to me.
