    Seriously! I figured out the brand that S uses from a thread here and checked on eBay. Found the seller and then his off-eBay website.

    [del]Are these the same, full-aluminum knob or are they plastic with an outer aluminum shell? That's my question. [/del] Looks like full AL.
    I've found the plastic/aluminum ones before and they were about the same price. They look the same, too!

    One of these is full aluminum, the other is plastic-uminum.

    They are the 19mm or 3/4", the usual size. The one, I got from Best Bass Gear, the other from onlinecomponents.com.

    Might not be the 'exact' same knob since the white line does not extend all the way to the center of the knob in the picture. I'd like to see how the actual knobs look though.

    Directly from Lawrence:

    They are all aluminum. And as an FYI for any question on quality: they're Kilo International knobs which are kind of a big deal when it comes to reputation and usually priced that way.

    Good point, Bongo... I didn't even see that.
    I did place an order, and I think they are great looking knobs for the price.
    Got some others, too. The Kilo stuff looks really nice.

    maybe not exact... but personally, I dont' want "exactly" the sadowsky knob, just something that feels similar.

    me too, I just wanted some good aluminum knobs, I find the Sadowsky ones too flat on top, like your cool uncle's hifi stereo amplifier used to have

    I got a set of these

    I got the knurled ones, too. Love the look of those.
    Lawrence seems like a good dude, very communicative.

    Exactly... proof is in the pudding, though, and I've never done business with him before, so let's see what he delivers!

    That said, he seems to have all the pieces in order and if this goes well, I will definitely order from him again.

    Lawrence is the man, cheapest prices on the web for what he sells.

    No one else sells 3PDT switches anywhere near that cheap.
