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 ;)

Good find Andy! 8-)

They are obviously 'reclaimed' from elderly gear rather than modern renakes, and I particularly like this one for its charm:

Could have done with this thread when James and I were trying to source System 1000's sequencer knobs. Eventually had to pay a bucket load to have them made to spec...
