synthparts.com is also an invaluable source.

i've used the above posted link a few times for some missing fader caps and such! pretty good service and very nice guy.

Another guy I've dealt with, Bob Wiegel [I do believe that's the proper spelling] from Sound Doctorin'

Great service, great prices! Recommended if you need pratt-reed bushings, by far the best price although you need to silicon lube them yourselves!

Great thread to have stickied!

MIDI to DIN SYNC converter

i'd been digging around for a while for a MIDI to DIN SYNC converter to be able to slave my TR-808 to gear that doesn't have a DIN SYNC out. there are several options out there, but the one i went with i am thrilled by. guy in australia is making them, they're simply an adapter that attaches to a midi cable, plus they don't even need a power supply!

right now he's only sold 3 on ebay and doesn't have any more up for sale, but i'm sure he'll keep at it. drop him a line if you're interested!

I would add chips for brains in there too, as they are remaking a lot of parts for vintage synths now, except processors.
