    I just replaced the knobs on my Mesa Roadster with black knobs, and I think it looks 1000x better than the chrome knobs:

    I know it's a pretty small thing, but I'm stoked! I'll also be able to actually tell where my damn knobs are set without being an inch from them, which is nice.

    Knobs are such a neat way to easily put your own fingerprint on your gear. This looks super great. Kinda adds the "rugged/functional" kinda look that the treadplate seems to suggest.

    that makes the stock choice seem stupid.

    Looks so so much better.

    That's the one thing that drives me nuts about my Recs...I can't see where the knobs are set on stage!!

    I am definitely a bigger fan of the aesthetics of the chrome knobs, but the're zero comparison when it comes to function!! Looks like a super helpful mod.

    Nice! I generally like chrome knobs on rectifiers, but the black looks better on your amp.

    I wanted to blackout my mini with similar knobs, but I ended up painting the dots instead.
