Help sourcing a strange potentiometer

Postby Bernierunns » 26 Jun 2014, 22:18

A friend of mine dropped off a Boss Dynamic Wah with a selector switch broke off. It's a five position switch. I have no idea where to find anything like it. I have tried mouser and digikey, although I'm not sure I searched correctly. Does anyone know of a supplier that has these things? Thanks.

It looks like it is made by Alps. When I searched "Alps Rotary Switch" at Mouser, I found several that looked similar, but without knowing more detail about the original, I can't say if any of them were the exact one you need.

It may also be an encoder?

Looks as though it may also have a momentary push switch on the pot as well.

Have you tried contacting Boss? Maybe you can get a replacement directly from them.
No matter how many times I cut it, it`s STILL too short!
