Certainly looks like it's got a good bottom end, but I imagine it'd be a nightmare to balance the output from those rings :tongue:

Hi...i am new user here. As per my knowledge CPC is probably the best choice, but Rapid sometimes has decent stuff at lower prices, and they're a bit cheaper on postage than CPC. RS is usually a last-ditch effort.

don-audio.comalso has a great selection of vintage looking knobs.
Not cheap but they have some knobs I couldn't find elsewhere (e.g. Pultec knobs)

Hi moatl, and welcome to the SOS FOrums! 8-)

Wow - just visited your link, and it does indeed have some wonderful (yet sometimes pricey) retro knobs

[quote="MixedUp"]Old thread, I know. But I found these Marconi/Neve-style plastic knobs. No idea what they feel like, but they look nice... [/quote]

Ive used Ali express for a bag of knobs before, plenty of choice and a good price although they can take a while to arrive and sometimes its difficult to workout size or other specs from the webpage info.

I got a nice metal adapter last week which I gave a good wipe down before using it !!!
