dbx160x switches

"I was looking for these same switches a few days ago and found this thread. I was able to find them from mouser and thought I should post to let others know that may be in search of them later on. Anyway the 4 pole switches (bypass and slave) are mouser p/n: 688-SPUJ193700 and the 2 pole switches (over-easy and display) are mouser p/n: 688-SPUJ190900. The manufacturer is Alps and their part numbers are the same without the 688 at the beginning. Hope that helps someone!"

Found this older post and Im gonna get these parts from Mouser for my repair. Go 2007!

Now where do I find replacement black buttons to cap the switches?

Nice find. I'll probably get some with my next Mouser order. Thanks, 2007!

I too would be interested in switch caps for these, and various other push-button switch caps with the square post, for numerous other makes and models. Particularly the small cone-like ones, found on various API, Symetrix, Audioarts, etc, from the 70's and 80's...There must be an alternate universe where all the lost switch caps go, along with the lost pot knob caps, ink pen caps, BiC lighters, guitar picks, and left socks.

I didn't find what you're looking for, but here's some caps for the E-switch series by ITT / Schadow

btw, I did a quick measurement on my dbx 160x and the switch caps are about 4mm x 14mm, so maybe that will help narrow your search. Didn't check depth; that would require unracking and cracking.

this KINDA looks like it might fit? maybe ask the seller to measure the dimensions?
