Hi there,

the potentiometer/switch of my Quad 33 isn't switching off anymore, so My 33/303 is "on" the whole time. Anyone has a vague idea of what happened and maybe a solution? I'd replace the pot but it looks like they're impossible to be found nowadays.

thanks in advance!

It failed, that's all. Mechanical things do fail after nearly 50 years. You can buy a replacement here in the Webshop.

If not available from DADA a company called Blore Edwards I believe do a 2AR-45 47K log pot with DPST switch. Dont know any other details but you can google them. Hope this helps.

I wasn't able to find any switched potentiometers there, but there are several other things of interest:

- 4PDT switch assemblies that would fit the Quad 33

- Wafer switch assemblies and parts that would fit the Quad AM valve tuners and various Leak and Radford valve preamps.

Hi Ejp. They are not listed in their shop but do the 33 pots with switches custom dB matched but not cheap at around £19 plus the dreaded V A T. Got this from the sales dept at Blore Edwards. PS Are dada europe getting any additional stocks of these as i bought one last year. Regards Stewart

The 33 switch is being made at the manufacturer for the moment and will be available in the Webshop soon again.
