Digi-Key is a few miles down the road, & has access to an insanely huge selection of parts. Here's their search-page for knobs:

They're a major supplier to manufacturers in Japan, Korea, & China. Often their prices are much cheaper than from guitar-parts vendors.

This should be made sticky. If only so we can refer future questions to the sticky knob post :lol:

This sticky knob thread is good. I recently got a home made pedal and the knobs are a pretty average. Some big Pultec/Moog style ones would make it look a lot better, but may cost more than the pedal itself! :headbang:

OK, not a link, BUT....

If you really want a Moog/Pultec/whatever knob there's no harm in approaching your local dealer and asking them to order spare parts/replacements ;)
