Hi Goblinz

I missed your deadline by a day or so so didn't want to hassle you - but if you get let down let me know as I'd like to make up the numbers.

Cheers

Steve

I've sent off the relay payment today which should clear in 4-5 days, then maybe a week or so for shipping the order to myself. Unless there's any big hold-ups then I should have these all sent out by the end of the month.

Still waiting for payment from one member... Please can you let me know what the problem is as soon as possible as this is getting quite urgent.

I'm sure there's a reason, probably un-verified bank account or something. I got a quote for an amount of knobs so have ordered that amount. If I don't know the situation before they arrive then I'm going to have to ebay them or put them on the flea-market, I'm sure somebody will take them. I already have 60 coming for myslef, I don't need another 45    >:( ... Although... i could build a Midibox 64  8)

I'll give them till tomorrow evening to get back to me with a reasonable solution, ie either make payment or to just let me know what's happening. If nothing's sorted out then there there will be 45 knobs available.. 15 white, 15 grey and 15 red. You need a set of 15 to build up a MB-6582 like Wilba's. I'll get in touch tomorrow and let you know the situation

Reincarnate, are you still after some knobs too?

I know, it's just annoying to get messed around like this.

You sent money by registered mail?.... You're a braver man than I am! Glad it turned out OK... I only ever use paypal or postal orders when sending money abroad.

look, it's small money, i don't think anyone could become rich with.

;D btw living in a place where i am is already the biggest of all chances taken

OMG  :o  this is not at all what I expected to have ordered, I expected knobs that are a little bit translucent (opaque).

I'll wait until I have them in my hands for a final comment...

Hi NLX,

I made an error when looking at the stocklist (I don't speak German!) and writing the original thread on the SID forum. The knobs that I have listed are not transparent, they are opaque

:)

I didn't expect them to be so bright and so opague, they look different to the picture from the picture on the site. They still look like decent knobs though. If they're not acceptable then let me know, there's some others who didn't get in on the order so I'm sure we can work something out.

Apparently I misunderstood "opaque", I thought it meant "not transparent, but a bit (diffuse) translucent". My bad.

As I said I'll need them in my hands before I can make a final judgement. If I'm not going to use them I'll throw them in the fleamarket. I do have some transparent ones spare (I got them waaaay back, might have been the same batch TK got his from) so I'm not panicing  ;)

Opaque means not transparent or translucent; impenetrable to light; not allowing light to pass through.

I don't know why people were expecting anything less than fully opaque... hmmm.... but I do agree that they are a little brighter than expected. Keep in mind these were taken with a flash bounced off the ceiling... in normal lighting conditions they'll appear darker. I like them a lot... I'm using the red ones on MB-6582 and I really wanted a red that would contrast well with the black and not get lost in the mix with the black panel. I'm considering using green LEDs on my MBFM, so I'll tint the white knobs with some green ink or dye so they look like green versions of the red knobs. Maybe even a yellow-green, like the backlight of the 2x40 LCDs I just bought *whack*

the grey is nice  ;) don't forget that this pots are very nice for encoders. ALBS remade them and that's good.

A little brighter, like comparing my lab to a solar flare! ;D I like them though, I think they're awesome. I might have gotten more if I'd expected them to look so nice, and I'm sure others will want some, so you guys who aren't sure, don't worry, they'll find good homes if you don't want them ;)

Actually, i like them... being so graphical clean, fill colors which will nicely contrast with black matte panel

Gonna have to check here more often...

yes, I'm interested in some of these if they're not what people expected - I think they all look really good.

If there's enough interest then I may organise another bulk buy of these in a month or so, If it's a small order then it may be best to agree on the same colour.

I don't think that matters... I think it's the total order size/cost that matters. I'm guessing here, but from talking to them, they told me they'd prefer a few bulk orders to 100 people ordering 15 knobs each. If you're ordering 50+ knobs of any type it should be fine.
