well the steep angle is the 'problem',i see the cavity and the nut sitting there,no miracles..you can't hide the nuts properly with this assembly,that's is why i wrote that its a bad idea,because you still can see them.glubsch wrote:paterursus, thanks for pointing this out.paterursus wrote:From the pictures I've seen, you can see them only when the knobs are removed.
Tobb, just look at my web page where I've posted two pictures at a fairly steep angle and rejudge.
+ the cavity will be just a dust/dirt collector over time...!
Its not big problem until the day a guy need to change a potmeter because its crashing and have no access to the nut.
keep in mint other scenarios,like built vocoders sold,then the new owner has a problem and send it for service...
BTW,your diy proposal is with Davies knobs ,but builders will use all kind of knobs,if using metal alu knobs available at Banzai effects & Smallbear ,those are less fluted then the Davies and you will see more easy the cavity+nut.
Rogan knobs are an alternative for the Davies and might cover completely cavity,your vocoder will also look 50% nicer..try!
