Make your own ARP replacement pots!  These are ARP Style CTS Slide Pot adapters for modern Bourns PTA Slide Pots.  This allows installation of high quality Bourns Pro Audio sliders into ARP gear like the Omni's, Odyssey's, Axxe's, and others.  These are just like our LED slider adapters...but these are standard shafts made to accept caps just like the originals.

The assembled unit consists of one adapter PCB, one height spacer PCB, and one insulator board.  These are 2.0mm FR4 boards with 2oz copper traces. 

Please note this is a DIY product aimed at competent synth techs.  It involves desoldering the existing sliders from the often fragile ARP pcbs, soldering in the new boards, and in a few rare instances, some creative fitting to work around other parts.  An installation guide is available. The adapters are fairly easily to assemble as the bottom spacer is used as a jig for installing the SIL header pins.  The required pins are included along with a foam sheet that aids in assembly. 

If you need a synth tech to perform this install, please fill out the contact form and I'll help to find you a local one.  If you are in the states, we can install them as well.  Use the contact form to work out a price.

These adapters are available as just the individual PCB pair, DIY Kits that include the PCBs and pots but require user assembly, or fully assembled kits.  All of the items include the SIL header pins required for assembly.  

Optional vinyl caps are also available.

Available kits are listed in the table below, along with the included number of sliders.
