Davies 1510 knobs

Here’s a look at the first solid phenolic ivory 1510 knobs Davies Molding have custom made for Effectrode. This kind of quality 1510 knob has not been available until we started working with Davies last year to resurrect this classic design. Davies are an American company who have been in the knob manufacturing business for over 80 years. They know quite a lot about it! This is the way knobs used to be made back in the day.

The knobs are laser engraved to recess the marker lines which are then painted on by hand. This means the marker lines will not wear off as happens with pad printing on the surface. Phenolic resin is a superior material to ABS plastic which is used in the gaudy Taiwanese copy, which is prone to degradation in sunlight and it doesn’t age well at all. More often than not they crack as soon as the locking screw is tightened up. No such problems with the high quality phenolic knobs though – they’re much tougher and they look more classy too!

    These knobs look great! Which pedals do they come with or can they be ordered separately?

      Hi Nathan, Thanks for that. These ivory coloured knobs will be on the new Delta-Trem and Fire Bottle pedals. Yes you can purchase them separately. We expect to receive the first batch in the next two weeks. Best regards, Phil
