doepfer knobs *groan*

Post by A Dingleberry Monstrosity » Wed Oct 22, 2008 8:12 pm

Is there a freaking secret or something to take these things off? Ive tried pulling a couple off but they seem stuck! :mad:

I know they can be pulled off, im sure. Is there some secret though? Maybe a stupid question.

also, I want to replace em with planB style knobs. Just wanted to double check that THESE are the knobs to get? ... s=P_SField

I replaced all my doepfer to knobs. You have to pull them so hard you can or take a tool like a knife etc.. They are replaceable!!!

I used a small screw driver and carefully pried them off.

What helped me was a well padded pair of grips (something that doesn't have "teeth") and one of those rubber circles that are usually used to help you open pickle jars.

or use some grips or pliers but put a heap of electrical/gaffa/duct tape around the jaws and it'll stop from marking the knobs when you pull em off.
umm did i just write that??? :confused:

For similar knobs I find it can help to have a bit of force from underneath - leverage.. Difficult, though, to avoid scratching the panel!
