Anyone know where I might get just the top piece of the metronome / mix out dial?  I'm missing one from my metronome dial as you can see in the picture below:

I was browsing the Farnell site but am probably not using the right search terms to find the cap.  Any advice?

Thanks man.  They had a minimum credit card order of £20 so I found their US subsidiary:

And grabbed it from there.  They have some gnarly alternative cap colors that might look cool on other E-Mu products that use the same potentiometers listed below on the Farnell site under "accessories"

Before anyone rushes out to buy one of these from Newark/Farnell there is a couple problems.

First, if you order on-line in the US from Newark you will get charged a $20 fee for this part.  You must call them and specify to order from their US warehouse, which will take longer but you will not be charged a $20 fee.

Second, the dial in the link does not actually fit.  It works well enough if you have no other option, but there is wiggle room and there is not a snug enough fit to keep it on.

Third, contrary to what the images may lead you to believe, the caps and dials are sold separately.  I received my dials today and they had no caps; luckily they agreed to send me some at no charge.

That said, judging from the dials they sent me today it looks like the replacement caps will work and if not, they can be made to work.

Just a heads up for anyone looking to use these on their Drumulator or other E-Mu products like the SP12/1200.  I'll post an update when the caps arrive.

The caps do not precisely fit the Drumulator's OEM dials (they do not snap into place) so you'll need to superglue them on.  Easy enough.  Here is my result:



$25 some dollars blown just for the satisfaction of having a dial cap.  I think something is wrong with me.
