Electrodyne 511 eq selector replacement

Hi all,

I've tried reaching out to Pete's Place / Electrodyne directly, but seem unable to get a reply, so I'm hopeful someone here can help. I'm trying to source a replacement part for one of my (very beloved) 511 modules. One of the frequency selectors has unfortunately cracked and broken.. I've attached a picture to illustrate the part I mean.

Anyone know where I can find this? Perhaps @ Brad Lunde ?

That was one of my quirks about that eq..
very nice piece.. I still remember how sweet that top end was..

Maybe Peter Montessi at Adesigns or Tony Sheppard could also help I imagine..
Although Brad is usually very responsive..

Just wanted to reply to say Peter called me directly and got me set up with Ken at Orphan to get some replacements, so it looks like I'm in good shape.

Thanks everyone! Much much much appreciated

I needed same and also had problem getting response from Pete's initially, but eventually did, and then got to Ken and he sent me one so I'm sure they'll take care of you. Those little indicators are original and they only have a limited supply so caution is needed when replacing. Have to be careful not to overtighten or they just break. I was surprised by how little I needed to tighten the new one, just snug worked fine.

Edit

Oops just realized I missed OP's last post...you're golden!

Aw man. I’ve always wanted a pair of these but I’m not going to buy any if this is the case :(

Just passing along what I was told but "limited supply" could mean, you know, a thousand right! Certainly not a reason to not buy the EQ (treat yourself!).

The EQ I needed one for was used and arrived broken so I've never actually broke one myself. Good to know there is also 3rd party option
