Fabulously tactile upgrade rings for your knobs which glow under UV light and offer a one-finger turning action. These are radioactive!
Yes, yes, knobs and rings, plenty of smirking going on I’m sure but there’s nothing naughty about these Tactile UV Reactive Knob Rings. They are a quite genius way of improving the visibility and grabability of synthesizer controls during a gig. They glow in the dark under UV light so that you can see them and they make knobs bigger and have a paddle pointer sticking out making it easy to manipulate with a single finger.
They are 3D printed and come in packs for specific synths so that they fit the knobs perfectly:
- Korg SQ-1 : 24 tiny rings
- Make Noise 0-Coast : 4 large, 10 medium, 12 small, 4 tiny rings
- Make Noise 0-Ctrl : 4 medium rings, 36 small shortened rings
- Make Noise DPO : 6 large, 10 medium, 10 small, 4 tiny rings, 4 small shortened rings
- Make Noise Echophon : 4 large, 4 medium, 8 small rings
- Make Noise Erbe-Verb : 4 large rings, 10 medium, 10 small shortened rings
- Make Noise Maths : 8 medium, 6 small rings
- Make Noise René : 6 tiny rings, 20 small shortened rings
- Make Noise Strega : 6 large, 6 tiny rings, 4 medium, 20 small shortened rings
- Moog DFAM : 18 medium, 24 tiny rings
- Moog Mother-32 : 18 medium rings
- Moog Subharmonicon : 16 medium, 14 small, 14 small reduced, 16 tiny rings
(Subharmonicon is produced with two slightly different small knobs, rings for both versions are included)
There’s no reason why you couldn’t get a couple of sets and use them however you wish. They are not expensive either, even the Subharmonicon one with loads of different rings is only $17.
They look brilliant, have genuinely useful functionality and are cheap enough not to worry about. Go get yourselves some Knobotrons.
