Default Wanted: sexy knob

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.
