Since the chassis extends out the same top and bottom near the volume pot, it's really just a matter of mounting the knob not too far back on the shaft so that it doesn't hit the chassis. No modification of the chassis should be need in either case.  All I did was make sure that I tightened the hex screws while the knob had about 1 mm clearance.  It works smooth as silk and the larger diameter gives better fine control.

Again, to be sure check with Jeremy first.  He is very helpful and has seen and mounted this knob.

Thanks for your detailed answer. Already emailed Jeremy about the knob. Hopefully, he can do the job, I mean, I know he can. He's the man!

Hello guys, I was just about to buy a Little Dot MK 3 or 4 tube amp, then I read another post about this Ember. Maybe somebody can help sway me if you could answer any of these questions:

 

How does the general sound signature compare on the Ember to the Little Dot (in what ways)? Since this only has 1 tube which is thicker, does this actually give comparable performance to the two tubes that the other one uses? Also how do you change the gain setting? (I looked carefully at many photos and never saw where the gain switch is).

 

If everything seems to line up then I'll start researching about tubes for this too. Thanks!

I can't answer for the comparison, but you have to open the top cover to change the gain setting. It is a jumper.

Also interested for the comparison with LD amp.
