IOW, they're the Fairchild style, rather than the EMI type ..?

I prefer style in haimas stockli photo... im too stupid to know if this is TG or Fchild.

Red & Grey.

Respect for whatever you end up with though.

The knob referred to as "Fairchild" is a regular General Radio knob, KNP-1 or something, can't remember exact name but I have a couple somewhere (in gray color), not with me at the moment... I, for instance, wanted to see knobs like that (GR/Fairchild) in black.
But don't mind me, I would only buy a dozen at most...
Now, could it be a coincidence that our British chaps are all voting for the TG style in grey and red colour?
 ;D
Naturally, would be happy to have either ones...

Definitely in for TG style knobs and interested in all colors like I mentioned earlier... Will probably order more than just five of each, though.  :)

I'm definitely good for several TG knobs in each color. Besides being perfect for the TG1, they will also look great on a lot of other projects as well. I know I'd love to use them on my REDD47 project. Frank, are you still expecting the black TG prototype in about 2 weeks?

So... What's the status of this project? I haven't logged on in a while and this was one of the developing threads (relared to the TG) that had me very intrigued before I took a break. I'd love some of these for my TG build.

Has anyone made these knobs available yet ?  ::)

hopefully sooner than later........

It would be nice to have three colors too in PA or PH.

I think I would buy a few.

ChuckD posted a design in his white market thread as "coming soon". No info on colours, price or time, but at least it's happening I think.

Chuck is working on it.......but he said machined.......so I guess no plastic injection ie no PA or PH.

finding the sweet spot of your comp, and then realizing the bypass switch's on....

I have a few of his Neve machined knobs and they feel very nice. I guess it's a kind of wunder audio - vintech look and feel. But it's no plastic, for better or for worse.

The Fairchild was sort of a test run to gain some experience with tooling and QA .
A lot was learned to say the least.

Now, this time ,  EMI all the way ......

In the works right now.

can you say Black , Gray and Red ?  PA , Elma & Sifam quality

couple of months, people and you'll be loving the look of these on your front panels.

Big thanks to Zayance for helping out !!!
