How many do you need? I have an old useless preamp with 5 simular knobs here in my storage

They remind me a bit of the skirted reflector cap knobs on Sunn and blackface Fender amps - except without the numbering:

...or maybe these Rogans. Still not a perfect match

Hey Scaff

If i could have 5 that would be cool.
Maybe can get you something back for it.

The other knobs don't look that good except the Rogan ones.
But these are impossible to get in small orders.
I really want the silver inlays on them.

2012> these are not for the desk.

I did also email chipsforbrains because maybe the micromoog ones match enough.

...I've looked at those hand-cranked knobs for years and thought to myself: "that, and some 10-turns.... hmmmm...."

- and then I wake up ;)
