I want to believe . . . in this knob!
Our Flying Saucer Skirt Knob is an aluminum skirted dial knob for 1/4" smooth shaft potentiometers. The black plastic knurled grip is topped with a mirror cap, offering an "out of this world" mix of grip, control, and shine.
Not for perfectionists. These knobs are value-driven (i.e. not the paragon of perfection). If you get close and cozy with them, you'll notice that sometimes a knob will have a wee bit of adhesive around the rim or the printing will be a little blurred or there will be some very slight surface scratching on the chrome. None of these imperfections are usually visible from 6 feet up when using the pedal. However, keep this in mind if your pedal/synth/amp/guitar/device is designed to be used at eye level.
For the price they're still an amazing deal when you consider how much work and material goes into these things. I'd grade the average knob a 7.5 out of 10.
Available in three sizes, each with arrow or numbered indicators. See our links to mix and match.
