How Do You Make The Knobs Glow?

Most of our guitar knobs are made using a UV reactive resin. They can be charged in direct sunlight for a short bust in color (aqua or green). Some other light sources will also work to charge a lesser degree.
For the most dramatic effect though, we recommend using a UV flashlight or standing near a blacklight. This will bring out the true color of the knobs & really make them pop!

Do You Offer Any Custom Options?

 We often get requests for stacked bass guitar knobs & set-screw knobs for push/pull potentiometers. Unfortunately we do not offer custom options besides the glow color options.

Are guitar knobs universal?

Guitar knobs are not universal as they are designed to fit specific types of guitars and potentiometers. There are various types of knobs, such as those with set screws that attach to a split shaft potentiometer or those that fit over a solid shaft potentiometer with a knurled or smooth surface. The size and shape of the knob can vary depending on the guitar and the specific model.

Why are guitar knobs called pots?

Guitar knobs are called "pots" because they are short for potentiometers, which are electronic components used to adjust the volume, tone, or other parameters of a guitar's pickups or circuitry. The term "pot" originates from the rotating shaft that is connected to a resistive element, which alters the electrical resistance in a circuit. This changes the output of the guitar's pickups, allowing the player to adjust the sound. As a result, "pot" has become a common slang term for guitar knobs.

Do guitar knobs pull off?

Some guitar knobs are designed to be pulled off, while others are not.
Set-screw knobs, which are common on electric guitars, are usually secured to the potentiometer shaft with a small set screw, and can be easily removed by loosening the screw and pulling the knob off. Other types of knobs, such as press-fit knobs, may require more force to remove so extra care should be taken to prevent any damage.

All of our knobs are press-fit and meant to fit onto metric-sized pots so be sure to check your current potentiometers to ensure a good fit.

How do you replace guitar knobs?

To replace guitar knobs, you need to remove the old knob by loosening a set screw or prying it off the potentiometer shaft. You can use microfiber towel or some thin guitar picks to do the prying, never use metal or anything that could damage the guitar finish.

Next, carefully install the new knob by aligning it with the shaft and pushing it on. Finally, test the new knob to ensure it functions properly & turns smoothly.

Why does my guitar tone knob do nothing?

The guitar tone knob may not be working due to several factors, including a loose or disconnected wire, dirty contacts, a faulty or damaged potentiometer, a worn-out or damaged capacitor, or a wiring issue.
