What knob dia?
What knob shaft size?
What slider fit?
Buttons for what?

There is no magical shop that sells every diiferent type. You need to be more specific.

for starters..

well for example, knobs that are on universal audio stuff. those big ol retro looking knobs on the la 610. or the neve 1073 style knobs. or api - esque metal knobs. or how about the knobs langevin uses. kinda like a chickenhead but not...

buttons/ ones on my sytek. or the round ones on the osa pres.

not sure on shaft size or diameter just yet.

i figured there had to be a website out there for some company that just sold knobs, buttons, and stuff.

just havent found one.

well i did find one out in china or something a while ago. but lost that page.

Unfortunately it's far from one stop shopping when you need a certain kind of knob or button. In fact, it's quite the opposite -- most sellers just stock a few types and it often takes a lot of digging to find what one wants.

Antique Electronics might be a good place to start, they have a lot of old style knobs. Antique Electronic Supply

how about UA

thanks for that link. i checked it out and its more of a guitar amp/tube amp style.

im really trying to source out the knobs that are on the universal audio stuff. those big chunky knobs like on the la 610 . i think shadow hills uses the same style knobs.
