Painton/quadrant faders
« on: July 10, 2018, 01:36:41 PM »
Elma was working on a recreation.  I never saw them materialize.  Does anyone have access to a fader?  I'm Looking for mechanical measurements and or drawings. 
I would imagine the design is a stepped attenuator or could easily be made as such as long as the mechnicals are worked out. .  I have a singular interest in this, looks.

Contact Danny White at Sound Techniques.

The ZR console that was at NAMM had quadrant faders in the centre section.
http://soundtechniquesusa.com has a link to the NAMM photo gallery.
The quadrant design is new and is not stepped attenuator.
Look this up on Gearslutz:
         Sound Techniques 8x2 Prototype-RCA Studio A-Nashville
There is a photo of an 8-channel bucket fitted with the quadrant faders.

Cheers,
Gareth.

I would however prefer them as stepped or at least a center detent.

Ian you are such a delight.   I owe you some of your favorite beverage at minimum.
Anyway I would suspect the arc is roughly 15-20 degrees. But looking for any and all dimension measurements of the chassis and other things. I am not concerned so much with the internal PCB as I have some ideas on that, sort of, more to follow as time permits.  I have seen some for sale but I am weary to purchase them as they are in russia and I would hate to get scammed.

I am happy to lend you one for as long as you need if it will help.

oh I couldn't.  I appreciate the gesture though. I am weary about shipping across the pond unless  I would be purchasing it.  The  idea is to  make some but have it be 24 position stepped attenuator and have the standard 3 tab potentiometer connection as the internals but have the look of the quadrant fader.

OK. The ones I have use a standard bridged T network. The crossbar leg goes from zero to infinity. The leg of the T goes from infinity to zero. The T consists of a couple of 600 ohm resistors in series. I once drew a schematic of the internal of one of mine. If I can find it I will post it.

Thanks Ian.  I am more focused on dimensions length, width, height,  and curve. The inside I could redo.

I would be interested in integrating Painton Faders into the REDD build.

@ruffrecords

Do you still have any for sale?

Tried online but no luck yet.
If you are curious, you'll find the puzzles around you. If you are determined, you will solve them.

The Paintons are 600 ohm  faders. Unfortunately not suitable for the EZTubeMixer design which uses regular 10K faders. I do have a bunch of Paintons in a cupboard somewhere that I got a few years back for a customer that never materialised. I really need to have a clear out some day.

Hi Pucho,
where are you based? I am coming over to the LA area end of March/beginning of April - mainly the second week of April - and would be happy to play courier as long as Ian is happy and the fader has been sanitised  :)  The black cover should come off easily should a customs official get curious - its a used commercial sample Right

Cheers

Mike

That is fine with me. They have been kicking around gathering dust for a few years now.
