ALBS Waldorf knobs bulk order January 2013

116 posts in this topic

Hi guys

 

I set up a new bulk order page for those interested in the ALBS Waldorf knobs or the DK38 knob for the SEQ4:

 

http://www.midibox.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=waldorf_knobs_bulk_order_2013

 

It's designed to run like the ALBS Waldorf knobs bulk order September 2012, hopefully even smoother  :queen:  -

 

The BO starts January 6th and will end on February 3th.

 

Ideas and bug reports are welcome!

 

Best

Interested in a black datawheel knob for MBSEQ, I am wondering if you will get price breaks for the Waldorfs?

Hmm, this beckons the question if I should go for backlit knobs for the LED ringery (might be over the top) or just use my stash of opaques... Decisions decisions...

latigid on: What do you mean by price breaks?

 

Jojo: Take your time, no need to hurry. When it feels good, put your name on the list.

Do you receive quantity discounts on amounts like 100/250/1000 knobs or so? Or is the pricing fixed?

 

Cheers for your work :)

Well, the price is fixed, because I can't look into the future and the more participants I have, the more work is involved. I think discounts are useful when we hit the 1200 knob barrier. But I don't think that is going to happen.

Dude, that's the right way Kristal= :). I am gonna think a bit on what I want, and jump in myself. I got a newfound love for the clear transparent hehe, but I gotta go over my collection to see how many needed.

 

Hawk, u're working on encoder-wall? :D hehe.

Datawheel would be interesting indeed. Would take 2 at least. Maybe some other knobs too, if the datawheels come through.

Technobreath: I'm glad you like it! :smile:

 

NorthernLightX: If you only need the datawheels, then the DK38 only option is the right thing for you.

Will be happy to jump on this one as well.  Need a datawheel and about 25 transparent reds.  Just waiting on my password change email (forgot what it was), for the wiki before I add my details.

 

Thanks for running this again.  You're the reason my MB6582's and soon the MBSeqv4 look so good :D

 

Cheers,

 

Arkay.

 

Edit: Wiki updated ;)

Hey kristal=,

 

i found some interessting datawheel knobs a time ago as i searched for a nice one for my SEQV4 and i found some nice at a german electronic distributor "voelkner" (has the same product range as "conrad"). I also testet the ALPS DK38 but i like the "Cliff Encoder Knob" more because better haptic feeling (it has a metal weight in its body). there are two types of them with different weight. i like the heavyer more. have a look to it:

 

the heavy one: http://www.voelkner.de/products/339068/Cliff-Encoder-Knopf-K18-CL71650B-Schwarz-Achs-Durchmesser-6-mm.html

 

the more lighter weight: http://www.voelkner.de/products/339070/Cliff-Encoder-Knopf-K18-CL71660B-Schwarz-Achs-Durchmesser-6-mm.html

 

same in different color: http://www.voelkner.de/products/339067/Cliff-Encoder-Knopf-K18-CL71650A-Grau-Achs-Durchmesser-6-mm.html

and the lighter one: http://www.voelkner.de/products/339069/Cliff-Encoder-Knopf-K18-CL71660A-Grau-Achs-Durchmesser-6-mm.html

 

the cheaper one is always the lighter one!

 

the only problem of it is that it is not for a "D"-shap shaft...that means not for the used encoders...but it works great...it fits and feels and also looks great!

 

here a picture of my SEQV4 with that datawheelknob. you could think about to offer them to the others too....they are realy feel better then the DK38...but they are more expensive!

 

here a picture of my SEQV4 with that knob fitted...

(i allready searching for the encoder knobs in the picture...i bought a SEQV4 CS Kit from SmashTV were they were part of it...he told me that the manufacturer of that knobs dont produce them anymore or they do it only you order a real big value.)

Hi MaG2k, kurz auf Deutsch um Missverständnissen vorzubeugen: Ich denke, Dein Post wäre besser in der Parts Sektion aufgehoben.

Denn der Knopf ist frei verfügbar; die Idee hinter dem ALBS BO ist ja, dass die Knöpfe, die nicht frei zugänglich sind, zugänglich werden. Außerdem würde es den BO unnötig verkomplizieren. -- Grüße Martin

 

Short summary for the English speakers: no coverage from me, the knob is freely available. Plus unnecessary workload for me.

okay...allready started that as new topic in "parts".

Thanx for the hint kristal= it shouldn't be part of your BO.
