cheap vactrols from allied

Post by jjclark » Mon Jul 13, 2009 8:37 pm

I noticed today that Allied Electronics is selling the VTL5C3 vactrol at half price, due to "excessive inventory" (they have something like 28,000 of them). $2.20 USD each. ... tt=vactrol

I saw a post about this on Electro-Music a while back, but had lost track of it.
Thanks for the reminder on this.

Do you have any recommendations for pots from Allied?
I like the Blacet Panasonic pots because you can fit more on a panel.
Any idea about bipolar pots (with the center detent)?
