    help find a Pot

    Im having no luck finding an ALPHA pot...(yea..i know..)

    I can list all the measurements...but if you look in their catalog...it seems to be a 3RP/091 ?? The back is stamped 9D2

    Thats exactly what it looks like...measures the same size...its a 50K

    I cant find one anywhere online for sale .........anyone ??

    The Alpha catalog, like Alps, Noble, etc, is published so you can make up an order number. They make them custom. They make a few generic ones for sale by parts houses, but companies like Fender or Peavey order them custom.

    What is it for? And description? Round/square? 16mm, 12mm, 24mm? Shaft type? 50k...linear, audio, reverse audio, other taper?

    Why does it have to be from Alpha? They all make 16mm split shaft 50k pots.

    Why would we have to browse through a catalog which to boot we have to find ourselves, for which you do not even provide a link?
    Since you are doing the asking, please post the proper data, including pictures or measurements, so we can answer.
