Nice encoder, works well.

Reviewer: from USA

It seems to be similar to an ALPS EC11 series encoder.

A little non-standard compared to the Chinese cheapies.

Reviewer: from PHOENIX, AZ USA

I used this to replace one of those lowest bid, Asian encoders on a Line 6 Spider MkIII digital modeling guitar amp. The frame tabs were markedly wider on the Alps, and the Alps did not have a D shaft, but it was much heavier and better made than what I replaced. Be prepared to take a Dremel to those tabs on the frame and maybe wow out some holes in the PCB for the terminal pins, if you are working on a cheap Chinese made product, but these are a definite improvement! The Line 6 came to life, and as far as I can tell, it works fine. I seem to only change presets every 3 detents, but I had a boatload of presets to chose from. The jury is still out, but it seems to have fixed the problem. I could have got Chinese no name encoders with a momentary switch for $6 for 10 of them, but if they were like what I replaced, PASS! I had to use a different knob with this, but that knob on the Line 6 is unique and does not match the others anyway, so it won't matter, just get a 6mm set screw knob, and use it.
