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.

Can't tell it from the original

My first electric guitar, a craigs list epiphone, gift from a friend, was missing a tone knob, just right. Now to get a new three way switch.

What can I say? I LIKE speed knobs and do not care for the Top Hat jobs. They look COOL and work better in my opinion.

Classic Bits of Plastic That Barely Age!

By

Verified Buyer


We all know that the speed knobs are easily recognizable bits of "knobbery". And despite being a pretty archaic knob design, they still are used on some of the most high-end builds out there because how slick they feel when you use them to roll off your volume or tone pot.

These plastic speeds knobs actually feel pretty solid and substantial between the fingers after you've mounted the knobs on your guitar's pots. Can't complain at all! And that's good. I mean, who honestly WANTS to complain? (Aside from Karens.)

My guitar has CTS pots on my Les Paul. Without StewMac help I would ordered the wrong ones.
A wonderful company to deal with.
