Title: Knob Upgrade
Post by: codecae on September 11, 2020, 07:40:05 AM
Anyone know how a set of upgraded knobs could be purchased to polish up the plastic-y ones that come with the Pro 3?  I have a Rev2 sitting just below my Pro 3 and can't help but imagine how much the Rev2's knobs would improve the look and feel of the Pro 3.

There are several online sources for knobs but Iíd suggest removing the ones on there to see what you need to buy first. There are at least 2 different shaft sizes. But also the  D-shaped opening that accepts the shaft is deeper into the knob than on the Rev 2ís knobs, where itís flush with the bottom.

And now I feel dirty for writing that last sentence.

Geez... some hardcore synth porn.   That might fly on Gearslutz, but this is respectable forum.  C'mon, man!

As I have an SE on the way, I'd be interested if anyone's found a good looking set of knob upgrades? I'm in the same boat - got a Prophet 5 and a Rev2 and I'd like to maintain the family resemblance. The SE is so good looking already, I think it deserves proper metal knobs to take it over the top!

I would love this too! First thing I noticed upon unboxing was how plastic-y the knobs felt.

Please update us if you find an option.

Adding some links..Not exactly for Pro 3. But emailed them to see if it can be done... They both stock for Pro One.
