    Got a good deal on an Ashly PQX-571, but it's missing some knobs. Are knobs replaceable? If so, where does one find a used knob shop?

    Thanks for the help, this is my first time dealing with repairs.

    Thanks,

    It seems I'll have to get a closer look at the unit when it comes in. I've emailed Ashly and am awaiting a response, I'm hoping to be able to just buy a full set of replacement knobs; but I know the unit is discontinued and I'm not the original owner so, who knows.

    Apparantly what is missing is the inner knobs on the double knob setup. inner does freq while outer does Q. Does that help any?

    Thanks,

    Dave,

    The force is weak with this one. I tried searching before I started up the thread with no luck whatsoever. As a matter of fact my most specific search, spare knobs for the particular unit, yielded some... unique results. Trust me, this was not my first recourse.


    Thanks,

    Those are dual shaft potentiometers. Have you tried surplus sales of nebraska? various guitar parts for 'stacked knobs'? allied electronics? Just asking

    Dave,

    Thanks, none of those places turned up while I was searching. I will give them a good looking over!


    Gratefully,
    Adam
