    I've searched a lot of thread, and they always refer to Mammoth, Smallbear, Knobs'rUs and what have you not.
    I can't find these anywhere.

    I'm using a One Control Mosquite Blender and would like to use my foot to change the knob position. (There's no room left on my PT Nano to use the Mosquite Expressio Blender that has an exp.pedal input..)
    Those rubber thingy's look great..!

    Just about any radio shack will have it, that's where I always found mine.

    Radio shack. You get 2 for about $2 or $3
    I they're called communications style knobs or something like that. Just go to the drawer where all the knobs are and you'll find it.

    Go quick, Radio Shack is clearing out. I went to mine this week and got the last pack. Everything in the store was 60% off and no refunds.

    Should have kept the wrapper and flipped it in the emporium for big money. Cause like, you know, its like vintage now and stuff. ;)

    This gent is right on. They have a little selection too at my local "Shack".

    Does anyone know of an online source for these besides the "Shack"?

    Radio Shack, as stated above. I have a bunch of them, so perhaps I will keep them and sell them for inflated prices when Radio Shack is finished.

    Get your ANOS Radio Shack knobs right here.

    Though I've known Radio Shack for years, and really feel for those employees (I watched HBO's Last Week Tonight w/ John Oliver's segment about this 94-year old institution disappearing, and some tv media just having a laugh about it..)

    ... but we don't have them across the pond, so I really need another eBay/webshop suggestion...!

    turning with foot, that's what Disaster Area installs on their controllers for expression control; love mine on the DPC-5 for this purpose.
