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

They're An Eleven!

Well made knobs. Use the StewMac knob puller tool & they are a breeze to install. Looks much nicer than the cheap looking knobs that came stock on my SG & ES335.

Pricey, but good

A little on the pricey side but they work as designed. Not exact match to authentic Gibson knobs as the print is not as big or clear.

Perfect fit on my new CTS pots and far classier than the stock skirted knobs.

I got these for a project guitar and they look great. Always preferred the feel of speed knobs. These are a very inexpensive way to change the look of your guitar.

I love them!

Never had speed knobs on a guitar, but decided to try them on my newest build. They work great for swells and are easy to move and dial in. I had a mix of CTS and Alpha pots, both fit the knobs perfectly.

Good knobs

I bought these to go with the premium wiring kit. They're a little tight on the pots and I can't get them all the way down, but they do the job where they are and I couldn't beat the price.
