    Does anyone know a source for CTS pots that are reasonably priced. I will buy in bulk 100 or 250.

    Hoping to get these in the $2-$3 range each.

    Depending on which style you need,

    try https://cedist.com/
    Get a free account, they have bulk pricing.(under 2.00ea)

    Another excellent option is to use the new Bourns Guitar series pots, Mouser carries them in bulk at very good prices. (2.00 ea)

    Cheers

    Thanks Edmax.

    I went with the Bourns from Mouser, I like the metal knobs. The CTS nylon ones are to new school for me.

    Also, I did register with cedist, but they sent me an e-mail looking for tax ids and all this stuff. I don't have a business tax id. Will they still sell to me?

    Hmmm, not exactly sure what their policy is on that right now, Ive had an account there about 7 years.
    Best bet is to call them.

    They do have a retail shop as well.

    Same stuff, just different pricing.
