    I need to replace my knobs and pots. One of my knobs stripped my pot. I was looking for a set of knobs that would suit my geddy lee sig.

    I was thinking metal dome knobs but man some companies are charging an arm and a leg for them.

    So this led me to the thought hey I wonder how those sadowsky knobs would look on my bass?

    But just one question where do you get them and how much do they cost?

    You can get the knobs from Sadowsky Guitars, IIRC, the knobs are $7.50 each + shipping.

    I been everywhere, man...
    None. At all.
    There's a big supply house whose name escapes me that sells them, but they're sold in bulk, so you can't buy onesies and twosies.

    I like these knobs so much, I'd put them on my amp - there's an idea:)

    When my Pentabuzz needed a facelift, I found out Pedulla sells the same knobs for the same price as Sadowsky.

    You can get the knobs from Sadowsky for about $3500.

    I hear when you buy the $3500 knobs, he will throw in a bass, built to your liking, free of charge.

    :D

    Aren't those the same knobs that Pedulla uses on the MVPs?

    those knobs look a lot like the ones Aguilar uses for their preamps.
