Title: Tempest Knob kit
Post by: Shanesplanet on January 24, 2017, 06:39:16 PM
Worth every penny. A little taller, a little larger, a LOT sexier. Makes playing with knobs even easier, and i prefer the locator on them.

I'm wondering if it will still fit in the Tempest gig bag with the taller knobs.

Ive had the tempest for 2 years and the gig bag and prophet knobs were the first things I bought even before I had the unit.

The unit fits in the case with the prophet knobs.

How much taller are we talking? I've got a Pelican case that I've custom fit the Tempest to.

@stoss,

Are you speaking to me? If you want to see the temp in the DSI soft case, ill snap a photo.

What model pelican case do you have? I use pelican cases for my camera equipment so if I have one of a similar size ill snap a photo with the temp in it.

Actually, if you could just measure the distance from the surface of the Tempest to the top of the knobs, that would be really helpful!

Knob kits are available from DSI, here: https://www.davesmithinstruments.com/product/tempest-knob-kit/ (https://www.davesmithinstruments.com/product/tempest-knob-kit/)

I gave my unit the knob upgrade as well ~

Nice work. I remember a lad doing these years ago, the white plate i mean.
Who did that for you? Gives the Tempest a whole new feeling really.
Snowstorm.

I've successfully avoided this... your pics have me thinking of it yet again...

This won't help.... After using them a bit, I still love them. When entering names and other edits that require fast and accurate scrolling... these are on point. Im a snob about sleek looks too, so no complaints yet.
Title: Re: Tempest Knob kit
Post by: Stoss on March 24, 2017, 06:17:04 PM
Well... I couldn't resist. I can confirm that the knob kit makes for a sleek and sexy Tempest. It looks good. It feels good. It fits in my Pelican case with no measurable difference.

I've attached some comparison photos for your drooling pleasure. Enjoy!

Edit: Honestly... every photo I post from my computer to this site is upside down. Sorry...

Another happy customer here. I had to replace my LPF frequency pot, so while I was at it I decided to treat my Tempest to the knob kit as well. It's such an improvement over the stock knobs, much grippier and way better looking.

Can someone please tell me, are these pot shafts 6mm, or 1/4 inch??
I wanna pimp my T

It is funny how excited we get over knobs. I can't wait to ofder myself a set too!

Post by: teashea on April 24, 2017, 07:50:35 PM
I actually removed and replaced the knobs on my Prophet 6 with knob sets from the Access Virus Ti Dark Star (which I bought from a chap in England) and I have ordered new black Chroma Caps for my Tempest.  I also ordered new black Chroma caps for my Pro 2.  At least I like the DSI knobs on my OB6......

I just bought some sexy lingerie for my Tempest! In 3 weeks she will be slutty...I still can't believe the hype over a knob kit.

Only if they made slutty panels... Oooo TABOO!!

Would like to get these but shipping from the US is pretty expensive.  $39 for the kit and $22 for postage.  Cannot possibly be that heavy?    Juno in the U.K. wants almost Ç50 for the kit.   

Are there any other options?  I'd like to get a kit for my Tempest and maybe one for my Pro One and Mopho too.

Post by: Yorgos Arabatzis on September 14, 2017, 06:43:48 AM
Nah..My guess is you won't find it cheaper than Juno in Europe...Else you have to tell someone to bring it over to you from U.S
Title: Re: Tempest Knob kit
Post by: LucidSFX on September 14, 2017, 08:02:03 AM
You could try your local store. I did and avoided the import charges etc. Net cost was a little cheaper.

Post by: Circuit3 on September 14, 2017, 01:56:41 PM
I'm in the US a couple times a year so I'll order just before my next trip.  I've been searching online and there are plenty of modular synth options so I'll see if I can get some that way.
