Hello . . .
. . . . you may have seen my threads about the CASIO 7500 Volume Control debacle

The THIRD volume control has now gone bad, and it must be a 'trend' because
the two vendors I'm familiar with are BOTH out of stock, and BACKORDERED
directly from CASIO. They're telling me some time in JULY ... well, I've got
gigs in JUNE !!!

So, anyone know of a parts house or service depot OTHER THAN
Full Compass Systems or PacParts who might have the part?

THanks in advance for any help!

Fred

If you wish to contact me privately use:

I guess this is my punishment for buying something not made in the USA
anyway . . . besides, the parts are probably all made in China.
Something breaks, and you're out of business.

In some cases it might be necessary to buy old, used keyboards to cannibalize for parts. You might be able to find some used WK-7500s on your local craigslist sites.

As far as buying replacement parts online, another site I've heard of is Syntaur. They don't have any parts listed for the WK-7500, but they do list a potentiometer for the Main Volume control of a WK-200, which could perhaps be the same part number as what you need:


As for other sites, I don't know whether any of these might help:

I'd suggest removing the pot, checking the component part number, electrical and physical specifications and sourcing an equivalent from these guys.

I'd recommend using an Equivalent from Bourne Potentiometers as they are well known for makiing commercial and military grade pots and resistors.

EDIT > Since it's a volume pot you'd want audio taper instead of linear taper.
