Looking for knobs for Neumann EQ's

Looking for knobs for Neumann EQ's

Anyone know where I can get some knobs for my Neumann EQ's? I've searched all over with no luck so far. Here are some pictures of the unit, and the attachments for the knobs. The posts are not standard size, and I've tried Digikey's knobs, but they don't fit. Neumann USA is also unable to point me in the right direction.

Hi,

as far as I know, the knobs you are searching for are quite untypical for Neumann gear.
Those knobs were mostly used on Siemens modules. I have made some additional pictures you can use for your search.

Good luck!

So, did you just take a picture of a box full of them, and say "good luck with the search?"

Oh, sorry but don´t get me wrong.
I´m not a dealer or something. I just have some of those knobs (not many either), but as I also have some Siemens modules, they´re not for sale as I´m keeping them for my own needs because I guess it will get increasingly hard to find original replacement parts in the future.

I thought it might be useful to point out that it would be better to search for "Siemens knobs" to get these, and that some more detailed pictures wouldn´t hurt in order to get the right ones. Better than nothing, no?

BTW, I got mine quite some time ago when Siemens closed the Audio/Video/Studio department, so I cannot name a source where to get them now.
But I think dealers that sell Siemens modules would be the best bet.
(again I got mine privately second hand and not through a dealer)

Hi


www.Vintage City.de


Maybe they can help you. Lots of Siemens and Neumanns there.thumbsup


If they don't have it, they should know where you can find them.
