A replacement knob for my stove cost 25 bucks, so 4 doesn't seem all that outrageous.

Have we really seriously gotten to the point of complaining about the price of a $4 knob?

man the ones on guitars start at about that much and go up. Not to mention how much an LP style spdt or 5 way strat switch cost vs their digkey sourced brethren.

I guess it depends on what the knob is going to do.

I have been purchasing Soar Knobs for most of my gear. Their great if you want a big fat honkin' knob to grab.

I'm still looking for a replacement slider for my blackface 7 band Radio Shack eq. Last slider I saw went for 110 bucks.

I should have dove on it. This thing just isn't the same without it. :(
I'm in for two, and I can pay.
