Best place for encoder knobs.

Post by jdaddyaz » Sun Mar 22, 2020 3:21 pm

I'm looking to replace a lot of the vanilla knobs on my gear, and was looking for suggestions on best spots to grab nice encoder knob caps. As an example I'm looking to switch out the caps on my Cycles, Drumbrute Impact, Aira gear, etc. They're all D shaft type knobs which are pretty common. Suggestions?

I've been enjoying these lately.

If you want smaller profile these are also great.

Neither option feels cheap to me at all despite their price.

There's a thread here somewhere which is nothing but knob replacement pics. Might be in the Euro forum.

I like CoolorCaps.

They come with the D shaft available with flat offsets at 0, 90, 180, or 270 deg. Not cheap, but they feel great, come in different sizes, and have options with or without pointer.

There's a universal 10% off code "COOL1"
