    I can't stand when the knobs on effects pedals move too easily. Once you find a good setting, a heavy hand, or even a stiff breeze, knocks it out of that setting.

    Is there a way to tighten up the turning action on a knob?

  2. put a washer under it, felt or rubber

    even cardboard might work

    Brilliant.

    Also, it's impossible for me to read your posts without hearing it in Lemmy's voice. Well done.

    A strip of duct tape works. Not the most ideal situation, but it works.

    I never felt that before. But now I’ll never NOT read KBD’s posts in Lemmy’s voice!

    Case handle? Or booze handle?

    I like that digitech has rubber knob covers on some of their pedals.

    That's a very specific interest.

    Why you gotta do that to me? A man can only get so aroused...

    Harbor freight sells an o-ring kit for cheap, a few of the sizes in it will fit various knob types.

    give the rest away to a mechanic

    You're right. I should start putting pamphlets on windshields.
     
  16. Make sure you put some extras under mine. I still can't find any toilet paper.

  18. Loknob? Never used it. Probably won't. Just saying it's a thing.

    ^ This is much cheaper and easier than my solution. Good stuff.
