    Default Chroma caps.

    Righto!



    Ive had some chroma caps on my s4 for a while now (about 4 months) and they've started to deteriorate quite a bit! there's rubber all over my S4 now, and its a bit of pain when they literally start crumbling under your fingers.


    I dont know if this has been flagged up before, or wether its expected. Im not saying i want anything back either. Just wanted to know if anyone else has had this with them.

    It was 40 quids worth afterall!

    I've noticed this on the corners of my fader caps, nothing wrong with my knob caps yet.

    Great thing they look like absolute kak, which stops me from ever buying them and suffering the same.

    Sorry to hear about your pain dude. May wanna consider a browse through here for an alternative.

    I'd like to see this as well! Mine aren't wearing terribly badly, I wonder if it may just be a bad rubber for just that one batch, or maybe it's a certain color?

    Of all the knobs sold this is the first I've heard of them crumbling. Try contacting the store and see if they can do something for you.

    Agreed. Show them your crumbling appendage and see if they can't buff it back up or give you a new one to stick back on. If however, green stuff is regularly coming off in your hands you may need to seek a more serious course of action.
