Oxford OSCar Potentiometer Set
- SAME BRAND & FOOTPRINT
- NEW OLD STOCK
- SAME RESISTOR VALUE
The Oxford Synthesizer Company OSCar is a marvelous synth, plagued by a less than great mechanical design.
As with many old synths, the pots start giving up after 30-40 years and finding exact replacements has been very difficult.
We have managed to get hold of a supply of NOS (New Old Stock) pots from the original brand.
Available in sets of 7 or 28 (which is a full set for an OSCar), they are the same exact footprint and resistor value, the only difference is that the pot shaft is 5 mm shorter than the originals. We solved that by just super-gluing a 5 mm spacer on top of the pot. This makes no practical difference, the knobs grip on to the shaft in the lower end anyway.
And before you ask: The rotary switches are not available. We'll keep looking! We don't have any other OSCar parts at the moment.
