Wanted: sexy knob
I'm looking for a black anodized solid aluminum knob. Ideally it would look like the ones on the Odyssey Tempest pre:

Does anyone have such a thing or know where I can get one? Much obliged :)

In your place, I'd grab a case of good beer, and go have a chat with the guys at your local machine shop. That way you can pick and choose whatever you please.

Perhaps one of these would work for you:

Thanks Scott, I had seen those and they're not quite what I'm after. I'm looking for large diameter (50mm or greater), black, with no markings (an indentation like the picture one is fine).

It's going on a preamp that will be mounted inside this:

I second talking to a machinist. Perhaps use Delrin, like I did on these knobs:

These guys have some nice ones, good prices too. I purchased some of the KBAL25's and was quite pleased. I don't see anything over 40mm though. Their rca's are nice too. FYI the website is pretty slow.

1 3/4" Knob with the exact indentation pictured

Wow, awesome :D

Got any pictures? We can take it offline if you like:

Still looking. Anyone got any old consumer electronics with nice black knobs?
