Parts for Sound City Amps
Sound City Amps #1
This link is to
Farnell, UK, a possible source for the black and/or colored knobs and the
clear, numbered skirts used on Sound City amps. You will need to know the
diameter of your pot shafts (in inches and/or mm). The knobs are not exact,
but they are fairly close, so I'm told.
Knobs for Sound City Amps #2
This link is to OKW, UK, another possible source for the black and/or colored
knobs and the clear, numbered skirts... etc.
Knobs for Sound City Amps
This link is to a company called ELMA, another source for the black and/or
colored knobs and the clear, numbered skirts... etc.
I'm told this place is a UK supplier of power and standby lamps, rubber feet,
and a few other parts.
