Studer 269: where to find spare parts?

Hey!

I'm really happy with my recently purchased Studer 269 mixer, but i have a problem with my master faders...

They don't match. I have the feeling that they're not the original faders, although they seem to be original, while they have the 'click' when turned to infinite. After checking them, one of them was 15 Kilo ohms, the other around 8 Kilo ohms... So they don't match. The manual tells me it should be 5 K..

Has anyone got a good tip for me, to either fix this, or find new faders?

Cheers! Simon.

Check out Vintage Tools, they always have lots of Studer parts.

With Studer everything is adjustable, plus a lot of 169/269 had been custom moded... I would let the desk be checked by a tech, and recapped.
Original fader should indeed have that mecanical click at start ('fader start') -- but no audio click! -- plus they aren't very soft to operate.
A good way to find parts is to buy some spare modules from ebay, like this:

Thanks. Mailed vintage tools, they don't have em.

As for the spare channels, i looked into that, but channel faders have different value resilience (or resistance, how do you call that in English?) So the limiter will not operate how it should be.

I might as well have some different faders put in there, but still, it would be nice to find some originals.

More tips are more than welcome, thanks everybody!

To Thelonius: last week there were some master modules for sale on ebay. They went for less than 100€. IMO finding some spare module is the best way to go. You can also ask some studer tech, they have some special ressources... I know a guy in Paris, he's working for Radio France and such, very knowledgeable.

To Wildpark: Could you post some link for Swiss Classified?
