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.

Perfect match for my PRS guitar

The savings from purchasing these amber colored knobs from Stumac was phenominal and they were identical in looks!

Good knobs, but Gibson's original look better and are cheaper!

By

Verified Buyer


Not satisfied and ended up not using these and buying another set of Gibson knobs. These are perfectly fine if you don't care about fine details, such as now bold and clean the font of numbers is. These are nice and fit the bill, but gibson originals are nicer and cheaper if you're buying just 4.
I'd give 4 stars if price was around $2 each.

 Decent knobs to change up the look of your guitar

Verified Buyer


Does what it supposed to do. Make sure you order them for the right size pots you have though. Check the spline shaft for correct fit. I've ordered many of these and most were made to superior quality.

good knob.

These are good speed knobs. I've always used fine-knurled kind to fit CTS pots.

Nice knobs but, not as nice as the epi originals......

By

Verified Buyer


Ordered the black knobs to match my custom black beauty after a pot upgrade. Numbers visibly smaller, not very clear as white paint is......"rough" Knob itself is slightly smaller than the original as well. I will use them, I'm sure they will work great, just the small stuff that only OCD-folk might notice!

Shallow

By

Verified Buyer


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.
