CLIFF Electronics announce new introductions to their wide range of control knobs. The new K88 range of space saving skirt-less knobs is suitable for use with rotary switches, potentiometers and encoders. Standard colours available are black and grey with opaque caps available with or without a marker-line - in standard colours of black, white, red, grey, yellow, blue and green. The cost effective Cliff K88 knobs are available to fit 4, 6 and 6.35mm D fit shafts and 6 and 6.35mm splined shafts. Typical applications include audio mixing and lighting desks and instrumentation panels.
To accommodate the growing use of rotary encoders Cliff has introduced the K18 encoder knob series which fit a standard 6mm splined shaft. These knobs feature ergonomic inner and outer finger dimples for fast and slow rotations, are available with a choice of 35 or 50gm weights for desired ‘feel’ to suit the application and may be supplied in either black or grey.
The new Cliff K3 and K4 “chicken head” knobs are available in Bakelite or phenolic material and fit a 6.35mm screw-fit shaft. These vintage-look knobs are designed to match original designs for guitars, amplifiers and foot-pedals and are available with or without a marker line on the “Beak”.
