Speed Knob

About This Item

Speed knobs' fumble-free shape is easy to wrap a pinkie around. Found on many Gibsons, they're also called "hatbox" knobs.

Choose knobs to press-fit onto fine (CTS) or coarse (Alpha) knurled control pot shafts. Sold individually.

Check your control pot shafts before you order!

Black: Clear plastic with black painted bottom and white numerals
Gold: Clear plastic with gold painted bottom and white numerals
Amber: Amber plastic with gold painted bottom and white numerals

Check your control pot shafts before you order!
Almost all press-on knobs that fit coarse-knurled 18-spline pot shafts (such as Alpha) won't fit fine-knurled 24-spline shafts (such as CTS), and vice versa.

Upgrading control pots: choosing the right pots and knobs

Lots of low-cost guitars play great, even though the manufacturers cut costs on hardware and electronics. Swapping out your control pots is an easy mod with big results. Erick Coleman shows you how to avoid troubleā€¦

Shallow

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I like the look and quality of these knobs, but found the female shaft depth to be a little shallow and not long enough.They should be deeper. I remedied this by using a flat washer in the control cavity to effectively lower the pot shafts.

They turn well, like a good knob should.

No frills. Just your regular speed knobs. Work well and look good. Just make sure you get the CTS ones if you have CTS pots, and Alpha ones if you have Alpha pots. It makes installation MUCH easier.

Great looking gold knobs

By

I ordered these gold knobs to replace the black one's on my Epiphone LP LE custom pro which I have customized by replacing the black pick guard with a white one I also replaced the switch plate and jack plate and these knobs just made it all come together. They were easy to install and looked great and are very well built

Replacing Knobs on a guitar.

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Recently I bought a guitar that had dome knobs and I though they didn't really fit the guitars look. I ordered black speed knobs from Stew Mac and they sent out to me very quickly, great service. The guitar looks so much better with black speed knobs, thanks Stew Mac for help with my purchase and sending it out so quickly.

Very nice real close to my original

These are very nice. Sit a little high on the CTS push/pull pots but no big deal, makes it easer to clean under the knobs

Info/specs listed on website very helpful.

I chose to order from Stewmac because they provided specs in shaft diameter and splines. This assured a perfect fit. This speed jobs themselves are just what I was hoping for.
