Decent price for a nice joystick for synth hacking !!

Pretty cool, but that is one chunky joystick lol
They sell a little breakout board for the connector on the site and it looks like its just a 2 row header so it would probably be pretty easy to integrate it with a synth too

Holy shit I was in need of a remote joystick just this evening. That would make a fantastic module as long as the springs aren't an issue.

Springs can be connected/disconnected with a switch on the bottom iirc..

Are these actually potentiometers or just switches? I cant seem to find that.

According to this https://hackaday.io/project/165961-ibm-pcjr-joystick-breakout-board they are just potentiometers.

They are pot based and are great for synth use.
I don't recall the connector name they mate with but that should be easy to google.
They also have a second push button on the back.
As stated already, the stick is spring loaded or free moving selected via bottom switches, one per axis.
Good price for new/sealed, too.
I'd buy some if I didn't already have four of them.
hihi
