Knob Cap Size

JB.
Sorry I don't pop in more often, but I have had so much success with Solaris didn't really see the need.

But I have to save I have really been beating the Synth up really good and have started wearing off the white print, but no biggie, I already know what every knob, page and menu jumps do.

But I went and sprang for some custom knobs only to find Solaris uses slightly different sizes than I purchased at DJ Tech in the Bay Area.

No problems, I found a use for 25 of them and now have 25 spares.

But it would really help me out if I knew where the knobs were manufactured or came from, then I could pimp them for the details.
I want some thicker rubber type knobs as they are easier to see in dim lighting and the bigger the better for me.

I can hit any from the hip from performing so much but sloppy with the knobs, and color scheme would really help too.

Here's what really makes gigs a breeze...

Jimmy,

The knobs come from Rogan in Chicago, the same place that made the Sequential Circuits knobs so long ago :-)

Here’s the part number and size:

PT-2 Black polypropylene, Black TPE, 6mm x 4.5mm Spring W/Spl shaft depth

Thank you JB.
See if they got some fancy ones....

Happy 4th of July.

And as always thanks for Solaris.
It continues to etch out tones nothing else can do thanks your modulation routings.
