Custom Knob Order Form
This custom knob form is for ordering knobs, not for getting estimates. If you are just curious about what it's going to cost then here's a summary:
If you are sending me pre-laminated cut-offs from an instrument that's under construction, I won't charge you extra for the laminations since that part is already done.
I try to finish orders and ship them in under a week. All orders are shipped USPS, first class and take 2-5 days to arrive in the continental 48 States.
Domestic first class postage is free.
Foreign orders are sent via Airmail International for $7-10 or Priority International flat rate for $26.50 ($22 for Canada) per order unless other arrangements are made .
I want you to be happy and I warrantee my knobs for proper fit and against defects or my mistakes with a full exchange privilage for the first year. Please contact me before sending anything back. I can't cover for your mistakes but I will try to accommodate you.
Not all possible knob options are covered by this form. If you have other ideas just tell me and I'll try to make them a reality but the pricing guidelines above probably won't apply. I have a local fellow with a laser who can make inlays from your artwork to drop into your knobs. I've made specialty metal knobs, metal/wood composites or "recon" stone inlays etc.
Please describe your instrument's controls or active tone system and describe the knobs you want.
