Farnell also sell the Blue ALPS, and on the catalog, it's specified as the pot for Audio application, and Farnell sell it at around SGD 47.- wacko.gif So there should be some differences with those small and cheap pots. What I like from the blue ALPS beside it's good sounds characteristic, is the feel when you turn the shaft. It is properly damped, not a bit loose like the small one (meant for small knob).

Hi bpribadi,

I have a friend that passed me some Kester solder.
The quantity is more than I will ever need.
If you are interested, I can give you one 1/4 KG roll of Ag3/Sn96.5/Cu0.5 for the help you offered everyone.
PM me for contact.

Nice handiwork on the tracks but you could do better with the soldering. Too many solder blobs there.

Thanks to point that out! You're right, I tend to use solder too much, must improve myself on that tongue.gif
