So I previously owned 2 Clouds modules with steady gain knobs. I never ever had any problem with them as they always felt sturdy. Now I bought a Clouds module again which has a rather annoying wobbly gain knob of which I today learned is ‘normal’. But how did I not have any of these wobbly knobs before? Did something change during a production year or is there a workaround?
According to the bom list, it’s a Bourns PTV112-4420A-A503. I found a similar version which has a thread and nut. Was this perhaps used later on?
