    not "dual ganged pots"...but, dual concentric pots? with coaxial, dual shafts...

    I need a 100KL / 100KL

    Any ideas?

    I think I saw them in Stewart-McDonald, but they were 250K and 500K A.

    I think dual concentric pots would be great for amp mod work. Want to add a drive control into an amp w/o blasting a new hole in the face? A dual concentric (DC) pot would be the answer. Want a tone stack in a dual channel preamp that has a shared tone stack? DC pots would fix it. I'm surprise amp modders don't have these available somewhere yet.

    Here are some NOS concentric pots. The only 100k/100k they have listed is an expensive Allen Bradley. Doesn't specify the taper, but this place is great to deal with...just drop them a line.

    There's also State Electronics at http://www.potentiometers.com. Look at the "KK" series of carbon comp potentiometers. Not sure what minimum order is these days.

    I saw the KK series....they're "dual", but not "concentric".

    I called State first.....they're actually less than 300 yards from where I work. They said they didn't have any concentric pots at all....

    Interesting.. quoted from the KK product page:
    Is it that they didn't have any concentrics in stock, or a problem with truth in advertising? :)

    the phone conversation was under a minute long.....

    Q.) "Do you offer concentric pots.....ganged bodies with independent, coaxial shafts?"

    A.) "No"
