This listing is per knob

I knew I wanted to make a metal version of the the Gibson Speed knob. However it being made mostly of clear plastic, and relying on that clear plastic to show the ticks, and numbers, there was no way I could replicate that in any metal. So I came up with this. A modern take on the speed knob.
Clean, both modern and classic vintage all at the same time.  I made these specifically for one of my personal guitars.  Time to offer them to you. 

Made from Brass, I have hand patinaed them to form a lovely color, and age to give these knobs an older looker and feel. Perfect for that vintage or Relic with a brass vibe. Steampunk some might say. Because of the nature of brass, and patina, as well as the handmade quality of these knobs. Each one will look a little different. Although I put a large amount of effort to make sure the patina from knob to knob matches as best I can.
They will also change and adjust as the player uses them in their environment. I can wait to see this happen to some knobs over time!

Because these are not numbered, or engraved with any letters, or words they are sold per knob.  So make sure to select the quantity of knobs you need.  The weight and feel of the knobs is fantastic. The knobs replace all stock knobs that have a 6mm (.236") split or .25" solid shaft pots (select your required size).
Knobs have a threaded stainless steel allen screw to secure them in place. .050 allen key required for install (included) Super durable construction.
Made from solid brass material mean these will last several lifetimes of wear and tear.  

These are .990" (25.15mm) in Diameter, and just over .5" (12.7mm)tall, and have an absolutely delightful heft.

Please select which size pot shaft you require. .236"/6mm or .25".
The .236"/6mm shafts are the much more common split shaft design. Included are plastic shims to fill the split in the shaft if you wish, although they are not entirely necessary.
.25" shafts are almost always smooth solid shafts.

Made with care, and precision in Tucson, Arizona USA.
