Knobs for Decware amps.
06/05/14 at 14:54:15
 
Periodically throughout the various threads  here I see people asking about where to get knobs for their amp.  Thought I would be good to have a dedicated thread on it that people could post pictures of their's and links to where they got them.

I bought mine at a Radio Shack store in town here.  I think the silver one I use for volume was around $10 for a pair.  The black ones in the rear used for treble/bass tuning were like a couple bucks each.

Nothing fancy, but I wanted knobs that have indicators on them and wasn't a big fan of the chicken head knobs that came w/ mine.

Those are cool Greg, they look similar to the knobs on my McIntosh Preamp.  I was actually thinking about picking up some Mac knobs and trying them on the Taboo as they have indicators on them too and I like the way they look.

Hi Beowulf,

Do you happen to know if the Mac knobs come in a 1/2" wide size that would fit the posts of a Torii?  The bass/treble knobs I have are plastic,  no one really sees them so are fine, but a nice aluminim set that would match closely to my volume knob would be  nice.  Come to think of it,  I never checked w/ RadioShack online to see if their assortment is larger than the retail stores, which didn't have the metal 1/2" type. Have to take a look one of these days.

I'm not posistive, but I beleive these guys sell Mac parts,

http://www.mcintoshaudio.com/
http://www.georgemeyer-av.com/vintage
http://www.audioclassics.com/

I think the Mac knobs are very clean/classy looking that still have the indicators on them.  What would be cool is a combination of the big and little knobs such is shown here on the C50.

Your right,  that is a cool look.  Especially if you have the black base.  Looks like audioclassics.com carries Mac knobs.  Not a lot of pics though.

Thanks for the links.

The C2200 knobs or Anniversary Edition C22 knobs may work as well.  Heck there are probably a lot of Mac pieces using the same knobs that could work.

C2200:


C22 Anniversary:
