That is pretty common knob and you don`t have to sand anything off as there are clear caps in various colors.

thank you for that farnell suggestion

for the price those knobs cost, i might as well try them if i cant find anything better

on the other hand, i just found a perfect knob on my midi keyboard (CME UF8). rubber soft touch. will look out for those.

I just noticed there that its the data entry wheel, i never noticed those LED's before.

I wonder can it be used with vsts etc.. like the behringer BCF/BCR, as in the LED ring updates with the knob on screen.  ???

REAN softtouch P301 are very nice knobs, fitting well with the soundwell encoders.

Anybody know where to find these in black?

Might be just me but I can't seem to find some good soft touch alternatives for encoders either.

I found a reference here: http://209.85.229.132/search?q=cache:yl1HRqGHNZcJ:www.synthware.com/cms/content/blogsection/4/26/+synthware+p301&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=be&lr=lang_nl|lang_en

But their site seems to be malfunctioning ant I can't find a way to contact them...

I can get P301 in black from the Canadian distributor for a good price, but only in multiples of 1000.  I have a couple of samples - they are very nice.

At that quantity, the cost is about 35-45 cents each.

Who wants them, and how many?

I'm currently trying to decide which Feedback knobs to buy for my MBSid & MB-6582 to be.

Bendables have great UK prices on ebay,

you can get 50 of these for only £8.49 + shipping  :o

I'm thinking either red on black for the mb-6582, or plain black,

or their moog knobs are cheap as chips also, and come in 2 different diameters:

only £3.25 for 5!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Circuit Electronics Circuit Bending has awesome prices in the UK also,

they say you will never pay over £1.50 for UK shipping, and £2.25 worldwide

- No matter what the quantity!

10 of these for just £2.79 + shipping.

%21BS4TZEgB2k%7E$%28KGrHgoH-D0EjlLlyn79BKF,-8wgVQ%7E%7E_12.JPG

7 Of these for £2.25 + shipping, and theyre soft touch.

4 of these for 99p + shipping:

and finally i think i *may* have found the perfect feedback pot knobs for the mb-6582:

8 for $9.99 incl shipping from HKS

For some reason i think beefy knobs will suit the feedback pots more, because of the beefy sound they produce!

I just bought 50 of those. They're nice. And they come in lots of diameters from 16mm upwards.

I am using those (with a shiney alu cap instead of the red one) on pretty much all my fx pedals and my avrSyn. They're pretty and at 19mm mix with the moog style 16mm knobs nicely ;D
