"Fender Style" Knobs
« on: January 25, 2014, 06:52:38 PM »
Anyone know who might stock some fender-ish looking amp knobs but with a smaller diameter (say 3/4") and a set-screw, also with 1-10 numbering?

Looking for some for a fender-themed trem pedal. Checked smallbear and PPP and didn't find what I am looking for there.

I can get regular fender amp knobs with a set screw but they have a huge diameter.

Thanks

You need a set of the knobs from the Fender MT-10 battery-powered amp. Maybe there is a way to source those, but if you google it, you'll see that's the exact size and look you want.
Why don't you just move to Nevada?
Because I heard it was a bad part of Mexico. This guy doesn't even know his geography!

Doesn't seem to be an option to source but thanks for the lead.

Any other possibilities out there?

Would these work?  Just over 7/8"

Here's a cooler one, same size.  Fits D shaft though.  I've had success drilling out a D shaft knob before but it can get sketchy and if there's a metal insert, forget it.

Are these set-screw? Can't find any description of them. I assume they are push-on/knurled shaft.

Good point.  I'll try to find out for you.  My gut says knurled.
