Finally got the new potentiometers to replace EMIT / SEMIT level controls. Sound is back to normal.

Disassembled one of the original pots and could see wear. Tried cleaning them up and they improved but not enough. Then tried moving the wipers to sweep a different section of the wound wire and flew too close to the sun ... killed it. Replaced the four of them today.

The one broken standoff came out from the frame (prior to my ownership). It looks as if there is a plastic part still installed in the frame, almost as if it was a separate part (maybe the standoff was glued to this remaining piece - it doesn't look broken). I'll try to take a photo of it tomorrow. Are they unobtanium?

Thanks

Rob
