    This just in for another addition to the Sting-WAL.

    numbered knobs from Lusithand to accompany the double NFP filtered pre. I can now see and reproduce where the knobs are set for my fave tones.

    A little taller than they should be, I need to get some new nuts to install on the pots, under the plate, to adjust the height. Right now the pres are slammed up against the plate adding about an extra 1/4 inch to the height.

    That being said, they feel great!

    Are the knobs themselves taller than a typical barrel or dome knob, or is it just the narrow diameter that makes them look taller?

    Well, if you can’t find those knobs in very low light you have other issues :D

    Why didn't you get the ones that go up to 11?

    Apparently, they're modeled after the WAL knobs, which are not as tall

    Yeah, where can one get a set of actual Wal knobs, or at least ones with the same dimensions?

  16. My knobs seem to be heigth-challenged, thus no pics. I feel somewhat inadequate to be posting on this thread...
