Spare part for Noah

Post by changearound » Thu Jan 12, 2017 10:58 am

My Noah is missing one of the yellow knobs from the front panel and its black spindle. Does anybody know where i might be able to get a replacement? I've already tried asking Sonic Core and they were unable to help me out.

Thanks in advance.

Try digikey.com for parts ;-)

Or Mouser.com

if they don't have it...well....they probably have it or something which will do the trick just fine.
Excellent support from mouser btw.

If the spindle is gone, you will need to replace the potentiometer or encoder that was there. So you'll need to take it apart to replace that part, then adding a knob is easy. Post a picture of it here if you want confirmation before taking it apart.

Thank you both for your replies

The spindle is detachable from the encoder without major surgery. I've attached a photo of one of the three that I still have. The spindle would appear to be quite a bespoke part - the end where it splits into 3 attaches to the encoder - and is the more important part to source as regards getting the Noah fully functional.

I'll wade my way through the very extensive Digikey and Mouser catalogues when I get a bit of spare time this weekend. Hopefully they'll have something that will do the trick.

Oh yeah, your right. A small dab of a glue might also work, as long as it doesn't outgas anything too harsh (super glue would be bad)..

You will defn find those there. I absolutely wouldnt go the glue way unless there is no options left. This is such a standard part though. Ebay could also work but mouser or digikey also have nice knobs....but then again...ebay also.

With glue if anything breaks again you have to change the rotary.

Order some extra...its not the costs
