dual 5K reverse audio taper

Hi I'm looking for a hard to find replacement pot

The original is Alpha brand, carbon, DUAL gang 5K "C" taper.
AFAIK "C Taper" is anti-logarithmic aka reverse audio taper. At 0% turn it bypasses signal.

I found the model at the alpha site but I have the impression I can only order huge batches from them directly.

Do you know of any reseller having these or equivalent? Preferably in EU

Depending on the application, you could try a lin pot with a suitable resistor, to make a reverse log pot.

Or, depending on your mechanical skills, you can buy a 2x5k log pot, and swap the wafers.
