  7. Thanks Thonk-meister - I just emailed Roger at THG about his knob (s) - sorry us Brits are so smutty - knob in our venacular can mean - dick!

    They do look really, really nice though - I'll see how much I get stung for a set of four...!

    im also thinking of order some hand crafted knobs but with zebra wood bodys and Buckeye Burl top's i'll need 2 concentric and 3 smaller so looks like i'll have to emailing them for a custom set quote but i dont think it will be cheap!

    I've seen quite a few examples of Roger's work with Alembics, and everyone who has his products is well pleased, and prices are reasonable (at least in the Alembic world!). Like everyone else, I'm planning a set for my bass, just haven't decided the combination yet.
     
  10. You mean like these?

    George F normally does his with African Blackwood, these burl maple knobs were supplied, I believe, by THG knobs.
     
  11. yes Big O - I'm going to get in touich with THG - I'll get my bass home first from its maker - but those (and your bass) look superb - thanks again

    If you are after ebony knobs, Luthier's Mercantile (lmii.com , I believe) has them way cheap! The THG are a more custom variety, which might better match the look you are after.

    Roger at THG does some excellent work and he's a great guy on top of it. I've had him do some work for me and I'm extremely happy with it. In fact, he's doing a set of knobs for another one of my basses now.

    I'm sorry that the knobs don't show up too well in the picture, but they are a spalted maple with mother-of-pearl dots. In person they look great against the buckeye burl.

    I contacted THG for a quote and apparently there is a long waiting list. Judging from the product that I have seen, they are worth the wait.
