Werkstatt Knobs

Post by DeniseK » Thu Jun 16, 2016 2:43 pm

Hello to the forum,

this is my first post because I have my first Moog now. :D
It is a Werkstatt.
I sequence it with my Analog Four and the A4 is also used for the Werkstatt as the effects unit.

Now my question.
Is there any possibility to pull off the fiddly knobs (like Korg Volca style :x ) and pull some real nice knobs on them like the Minitaur has?

Here was a thread that asked if "Is the werkstatt is more than a toy?"


This thread was taken off topic, hijacked by exterior decorators, and their apparent opinion is that if you add larger buttons to anything it can not be considered a toy.

I've bought knobs off of synthesizers.com to make my Wekstatt look officially more Moog-like. The knobs do cover up the labels, but damn if it doesn't look good.

The knobs from synthesizers.com are all 1", but you can get smaller versions from Small Bear Electronics:

Be aware that knobs come in two basic types; the 'press-fit' type for knurled shaft pots and the 'set screw' type for smooth shaft pots. Make sure you are ordering the correct type.

I've used both types for some recent re-knobbing projects:

On a modular panel:

On a vintage synth:

EDIT - I believe these are the same knobs that Moog uses on the M32 and Sub 37.
