Doepfer Black Knobs

Post by mattsynth » Thu Oct 22, 2009 2:33 pm

Does anyone know where I can get black replacement knobs for my Doepfer modules. I like Doepfer because they have all the necessary modules and take up very little space but they are so dam ugly with them gray knobs. Black knobs would make a big difference. :help:

@LDT: I totally missed this from looking at it earlier; Nice detail of having the clocking devices and the echo either side of the matrix mixer; both extremely useful right there! :yay:

Oh, that selection of modules and their placement is quite random. But thanks anyway 8_)

Did you mean 550-67003 ? Searching for 550-57003 doesn't turn up any hits for me.

oooo
drewl!
:emt: :lol:

no sorry,
too aligned. :confused: :despair:

i actually like as much difference in knobs as possible in a modular.
adds to the cacaphony. got a new (old copycatcase) >5u or something< case by the way. placing modules upside down and sideways allso adds to the openmindedness to investigate and embrace mistakes during the venture into the world of sound. :bananaguitar:

(by the way only noticed today that makenoise has these nice colourschemes.
next one must be green or another mixcolour, for now yellow red and blue have been used)

edit: sorry for the blabla; this summer/wintertimeshift adds an hour of beer to the lot.

yeah, I hope Tony doesn't stop making modules when he runs out of new colors to use!

Dunno if the new moddemod has any knobs on it, but the matrix seq will have at least 16!

green, orange or purple i guess. :despair:

if it was meant as a philosophy i guess the vco he still has to make should have been in one of the primary colours, but maybe he thinks the wogglebug is more primary. :party:
