***Official Product Thread*** Pro-Dials guitar knobs

Hello and thank you for stopping by our official product thread here at Jemsite.com. It is within this thread that we would like to provide basic information on our low profile system for guitar controls. We are a limited resource operation and this is a unique opportunity for us to present our product information to the guitar community. Here are the goods:

The concept is simple. Lower the mounting height of a potentiometer so the potentiometer spindle is low enough to accept a control knob that's out of the way of the strumming (or picking) direction. Application design however is not that simple. Our design is extremely robust with excellent durability but requires an enlarged mounting hole to accept the required hardware. This makes installations a permanent modification unless of course the controls are mounted to a pickguard which would allow the original configuration to be restored by swapping out pickguards. Either way it is an extensive modification and care must be taken when locating the mounting insert to avoid interference with the side walls of the control cavity.

We currently have an initial run of prototypes we are selling direct through our website. These are fully functional and represent the final design of the product sans style attributes. Any future style releases will be fully compatible with these prototypes and can be upgraded by simply changing knobs.

Thanks again for stopping by and check out our website for further details.

Re: ***Official Product Thread*** Pro-Dials guitar knobs

y'know i had a design for this type of thing where it was possible to do the same thing but with no modifications to any standard guitar so it could be sold as a simple accessory and knobs anyone can use.
it's something i planned to look into making later.. but if you were interested in that sort of thing we could talk about the design and your company possibly using it..

New option!!!

Beverage cap adapter kit. Allows a twist-off bottle cap from a beverage of your choice to snap on top of control knob.



Sorry mates, fits American style twist-off bottle caps only.

It definately sounds like a good idea.
I'd like to give them a try on a project build perhaps.

Those bottle-caps could cause havoc with your paintwork if you pushed on them a bit hard though.

Thank you for the positive feedback.

We haven't had any problems with the cap scratching the top of the guitar as it clears by about 1 mm when pushed all the way on. Also the low profile knob bottoms out on the mounting insert when pushed on all the way further protecting the guitar.

I would like to buy some - but you don't reply to e-mails.
Does anyone sell your dials in Toronto?

I love how these rocket scientists always quote the spam so that it's still there when the original post is deleted, instead of just reporting the spam to the mods using the button provided and letting them deal with it
