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.

Great knobs

By

Verified Buyer


These are great for that Vintage look and appeal. Oh, and they work great, too.

Fits CTS pots perfectly

Nice accurate part that works well.

Works for new builds, recent guitars ... not so much for vintage

By

Verified Buyer


Like the title says, the StewMac speed knobs don't really match vintage. Main diff is the white numbering is much bolder on the original knobs. I'm not saying this is a fault, I love StewMac. I'm writing this as a "Heads up!" for anybody looking to replace and match a speed knob on Gibsons older than 1985.

Gold SPEED Knobs

By

Verified Buyer


I bought these when I upgraded the pickups and pots on my PRS SE. it has an amythyst top and the black knobs it came with didn’t do it justice. These Gold Speed Knobs look great, nice contrast and just add to the look of the guitar !

Awesome knob

By

Verified Buyer


I bought the black speed knob to dress up my guitar. It had the desired effect. I am grateful that Stewmac showed the two different kinds of knobs - coarse and fine - I would not have known otherwise and would likely have ordered the wrong ones. Good stuff. I'll be back as I continue my guitar face lift. Thanks.

They look and feel great

These are very high quality and I enjoy them. They are a tight fit on the cts pots.

Excellent!

I bought a few of these to jazz up my Gibson Thunderbird bass. I initially reached out to customer support to ID the correct ones and they were great and easy to deal with and gave me the correct direction. My order came quickly and was perfect! The knobs fit beautifully and look great. Very well constructed!

Just Right!

By

Verified Buyer


I wanted some new control knobs for the CTS push / pull pots I installed on my '72 Telecaster Deluxe I was overhauling. I got the black speed knobs and they fit just right. They have enough grip so they don't come off the shaft when I activate the pull switch feature. They feel nice and solid and make for precise volume and tone adjustments. Stew-Mac delivers the goods again!

Almost perfect knob.

By

Verified Buyer


I'm using these knobs on a 2014 Gibson Melody Maker. Out of 4 knobs one was not concentric but works OK. I ended up turning a groove in the knob to retain an O-ring for extra grip. Works really well.

Beautiful knobs.

I got the amber ones to go on a natural finish, Epiphone 339 pro. Great quality and they look and work just right.
