[Build home made mixer] Find good rotary knobs

Hi
i've modified few month ago a factory mixer to make a very simple rotary mixer. Here's a pic:


(home made stick headphone too)

I'm no looking for new knobs.
Theses look greats...


Do you know a good store to buy them from? If possible a store which has at least the knobs in two diameters. I'm in Los Angeles until end of december, then back to France

Me too. It looks fantastic the way it is now. The knobs match the design of the unit, I actually would not touch it. Looks perfect as it is if you want my opinion

I agree

It has a really funky minimal thing goin' on. That would be ruined by new knobs...

But then again what do I know

Standard Knob

I have seen that knob in Maplins {read radio shack in USA) it is a standard industrial type thing found on all sorts of equipment. Maplins have a web site.

You might find a deeper design better, these felt all wrong on the A&H V6 to me.

Junior welcome

Swanflight makes some awsome cases. Mine was custom made but they can be expensive. Mine cost 185 Pounds Sterling and another 85 poubds to ship it but the quality is outstanding.

The shape of the Mixer is the prob.
Because i want the Knobs of the 1620 in the same height than the TTs. I need something like this in a case. And to build something like that would be very expensive. The Price everyone in Germany tolds me was something around 450.- Euros.

sorry, i don't really get what you're searching for.

do you want to have a case that has the mixer mounted horizontal and you can angle it a bit up to your likes?

There is no need to angle it up!
Here is another Link to some Pictures:
Klick!

Hope the Pictures help.
