Anyone made an amp with this pot yet? What knob did you use? I got one of those from digikey but it sticks out so it doesn't look as nice. Looking for something that will cover up the entire shaft.

Preferrably something I can get locally (like Radio Shack) but online would be appreciated too.

If you mean the knob won't fit flush to the front panel, you'll need to shorten the shaft. (hacksaw?)

I know it's difficult, but you need to be strong!


I think there are many other options.


They were made long intentionally to fit different applications, and were meant to be 'trimmed' as needed. Sorry.

Think about this, even if you could find a knob that would fit the entire length of the shaft, it would have to be one huge stinkin knob. Suck it up, get out your hacksaw (actually an Xacto saw or a Dremel works great) and trim that puppy.


...pot shaft circumcisions are never easy, especially your first one, especially when it's your first Alps.
