    Default Akai lpd8 custom knobs

    There seems to be alot of complaint on the knobs of akai lpd8, wide and pretty short. Ive seen alot of people here try to fit other knobs from other controllers, and yea that might work ok. But custom knobs would be the best alternative.

    My gf:s father owns a cnc machine shop. So if someone could make a cad drawing of the knobs with the right specs but a little higher/however you would like them Im fairly sure I could make a bunch and sell them here to you guys on djtechtools. Alltough its nothing I can promise, but if someone makes a good cad drawing there shouldnt be any problem.

    So material/color can be all up to you, but if her dad is willing to make a few Im gonan stickw ith 1 color and material.

    Defenitly better then trying to fit knobs from other controllers as there wil fit perfectly.

    These will only be aviable if theres is big enough interest amongst you guys owning an lpd8.

    That totally possible if someone properly measures the original knobs and make a cad file, they will then fit exactly like the original ones.
