    Got the idea from a member on the "show your pedalboard" thread. These fender amp knobs are great... I can see exactly where the knobs are set, and I think they look pretty classy too...

    I bought extras to "re-knob" other pedals as well--particularly chicken head knobs that can get moved by my foot.

    That's a great idea, I can never tell where the knobs are set on my TIM.

    You're welcome!

    You can find those Fender amp knobs at GC fairly easily. They are also all over the net, really pretty easy to find. I've got them on my Timmy, DLS C~V, even on my Tele's controls - super easy to see your settings even at a quick glance. I hate black knobs on pedals - can't ever see those little white lines...

    That's a very cool idea! I'll have to get some of those for my Tim pedal.

    Looks classy!

    Hey erksin! <--- It's all this guy right here. That's where I got the idea from after seeing his Timmy. It looks slick.

    I've been sticking these knobs on a lot of my pedals and love them. They really beat dark knobs and chicken-head knobs which tend to get knocked out of place when my foot hits the pointy area.

    I really like them on my Tele. I never liked the knurled metal knobs, and Strat knobs are backwards to us lefties...

    Thanks! The Z-90s are my favorite pickups by far in this guitar. I went through various HBs (Duncan, DiMarzio, PRS, Barden), P-94s, and TV'Trons before finding the Z-90s - they are perfect in a Tele IMO.

    Awesome!!! Now I'm thinking about 'pimping my Tim pedal.' Quick question. What's the safest way to get the original knobs off?

    perhaps paul should offer these knobs as an option. he really needs a website. if for nothing else than a way for people to submit orders through a simple contact form.

    the side of the knob has a screw holding it on... just unscrew it.

    I tell you what next time you see a left handed guitar player LIVE walk up to him and tell him that, and then you can report back to us how your new false teeth are fitting:D

    No insult intended.

    I mean, they don't just look backwards - it's like looking at one of those doohickeys that branches into two legs at the top but ends up with three legs at the bottom! It just messes with my head.

    I have a stash of original NOS Tim knobs. These are the ones with the correct polymer formula that everyone covets.

    I'm just biding my time. ;)
