Not worthy of a thread on its own but as a side comment my Thonk knobs
arrived today so I now have fat knobs instead of those spindly shaft things on both my Subharmonicon and DFAM sequencer/clock controls, which is quite pleasing.
Crap, now I need those...
You do. They rock. Sorry mate
Not just a gimmick either. They really do add to the usability/friendliness of the synths, they are very reasonably priced and why Moog didn't include them in the first place I've no idea.
For the DFAM they sell the ready-to-roll kit
. For the Subharmonicon you need to order a pack of "Brass Pot Adapters - 6mm to 6.35mm
" (they come in packs of 20), and any combination you fancy of "Black - Mini (6.35mm Round Shaft) - Synth Pointer Plastic Knob
" and "Black - Small (6.35mm Round Shaft) - Synth Pointer Plastic Knob
" from here
The small are the ones I have on the DFAM sequencer steps and the Mini are the ones I have on the Subharmonicon rhythm controls.
I went for Mini for the rhythm controls as I was being cautious but Small would work well for all.
They are a doddle to fit as well. The brass pot adaptors simply slide into the knobs, and then you slide that arrangement over the existing pots on the synths and tighten a slotted grub screw with a small screwdriver.
You'll note that one of my knobs came missing the shiny silver cap, but I've been in touch with them about that and I'm not fussed anyway. Thonk's registered office address is in my home town. As you're in the US you might want to order one extra knob just in case - they are cheap as chips.
If you have any issues with over-the-top shipping costs or brexit (I don't think you should, being in the US) then let me know and I can order for you and forward them on privately.
Apologies for temporarily hijacking your thread Tony!
