The Good Knob (and Pots + Encoders) Thread


#81

I bought some knobs from Maplin (UK) today for my Sidekick. They look remarkably similar to the ones in the Shruthi kit, except they’re not designed for D shaped pot shafts.

I still managed to push them on and they grip fine. But they’re difficult to line up as a result.

Plus you have the usual problem of them only ever stocking 2 of everything.

Frank have you ordered them already? dam i have 6 pages of threads to look through, hope i haven’t missed the new product!

btw i don’t like the colorful musikding knobs that i’ve seen some posts above on the programmer (the slim ones, with pointer, that comke in all colors). i did like them, until i tried to use them on my Where’s tha party at. there’s no metal threading, the screw goes through plastic. destroyed the threading even before they were sitting firmly.

@fcd72 - I could write something in my final will, but I have to be very careful to not give you an incentive to kill me :wink:

Maybe I missed it, but I don’t see a link on this thread on where to get those sexy transparent knobs. Can someone enlighten me?

You can get the Albs “Waldorf” knobs over at MIDIbox forum
Register yourself there and post in the relevant bulk order thread. However, there was just a bulk order that has closed and shipped to those of us who wanted in.

Hello people,

Just in case you haven’t noticed/kept up - there’s a new bulk for the Albs knobs over at MIDIbox. Also, some really neat thumb-wheels for D-shaft encoders are offered.
