Get some seriously coveted vintage vibes with our Fairchild Pointer Knobs, available in three sizes and made of durable phenolic plastic for 1/4" smooth shaft potentiometers.

Our classic styled knobs owe their distinctive look to the knobs used on the Fairchild Tube Compressor 660-670, one of the great tube compressors of the mid-twentieth century and a rare find today, as fewer than 1,000 were built in the 1950s. These Fairchild Pointer Knobs are perfect replacement knobs for vintage radio projects, audio gear, and any build that nods to a vintage audio aesthetic or Ma Bell/Western Electric vibes.

Three sizes available:

Small: 29.5mm OD

Medium: 52.5mm OD

Large: 61mm OD
