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!

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.

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.

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...
