Mopho X4 compatible knobs kit

Mopho X4 compatible knobs kit
« on: November 28, 2019, 10:42:15 AM »
Hi guys,

I lost one knob from my Mopho X4 and would like to get a more modern replacement kit. I like the DSI kit but it would cost me too much as I am in Italy (the shipment costs more than the kit).
So could you suggest a good knobs kit as an alternative?
I checked on www.thonk.co.uk but it's hard to recognize a compatible knob, did anyone change his knobs kit and can suggest where to buy it? What are the specs for the knobs of the Mopho X4?
Thanks in advance.

I think the X4 ships with the Make Noise-style Rogan soft-touch knobs. If so, an exact replacement is available from Thonk. You can scroll down this page for measurements to determine which one you need.

Those are kick-ass knobs in my opinion (and I've got them all over my synth). It seems like anything else would be both a lateral move and expensive. But if you do want to change them all, you should be able to pick out just about any 6mm D-shaft knob.
