The surface mounted resistors used on the standard Goldpoint V24s are laser trimmed 0.5% Nichrome THIN film. They provide better precision and better sonic qualities than other stepped attenuator brands or even typical Goldpoint V24 Custom switches with expensive Vishay or Caddock resistors installed. A truly excellent value - and we charge less for them!
NEW!   47 Position Stepped Attenuators:
Although 24 positions is plenty for most applications, having 47 positions is desirable in some situations. The turning torque is smoother and the decibel step sizes are smaller.
The surface mounted resistors used on the Goldpoint V47s are 0.5% Nichrome THIN film with a thermal noise specification (TCR) of 25 PPM, same as on our V24s,
 The new Goldpoint V47 SMD stepped attenuators are available in 10K, 25K, 50K, 100K, and 250K.
1.5" wide x 1.4" tall.  Also see stepped attenuator lengths.
Every position has a decibel step size of 1.5bB.
Part Numbers:   V47 - (# of channels) - (value)   example: V47-2-50K  =  V47, Stereo, 50K   
Prices:  Mono = $130., Stereo = $246., Quad = $416.
Special: We started making 47 position stepped attenuators with the through-hole version pictured here. And we have a few left in the 50K value (only) that we are now selling off at lowered prices. They employ excellent sounding 1% KOA Nichrome resistors.
 Mono P/N  V47-1-50K-SQ   -  price = $110.
 Stereo P/N  V47-2-50K-SQ   - price = $210.
 Physical size is 1.35" wide x 1.3" tall

New V24C Custom Choices:

We have added a choice of PC board size. When ordering, let us know which size you want: 1/4W or 1/2W. If not specified, we ship the 1/2W size.

Note: If you need a custom value or custom taper you can purchase our blank V24C custom switches, obtain your own resistors, and install them. It's easy to do. In some cases, we can help you figure out the resistor values you may need. This can be the least expensive way to get a high quality stepped attenuator.
Make any value or any audio, log, or linear taper stepped attenuator you want to anytime you want to. 
Make up your own resistor list or use one of our pre-determined audio taper lists. (Click here: resistor lists
Alternatively, make a linear taper control by dividing the total resistance you want by 23. 
Then choose the closest value off-the-shelf resistor you can find and solder one in each position. 
Example: 50K divided by 23 = 2.15K (or 2.21K)   [2.15K x 23 = 49.45K]  [2.21K x 23 = 50.83K]
However, for audio taper controls, we recommend that you use our standard V24 stepped attenuators:
-----1)  They are pre-built and use (sonically superior) 0.5%, low-noise, precision resistors.
-----2)  All the work is already done for you - no ordering parts or extra soldering, etc.

Knobs for 6mm Shafts          Custom Machined (solid) Aluminum Knobs
These solid aluminum knobs were specially designed for Goldpoint stepped attenuators and selector switches (which have 6mm (.237") diameter shafts). If you want to use knobs which were designed for 1/4" shafts on Goldpoint stepped attenuators or selector switches, it is recommended that you wrap the shafts with a few layers of Kapton tape or common Scotch tape to ensure a properly centered fit.
