Wanted: Switchmaster knob for my Electra

I am new to the forum.  Looking for a switchmaster knob for my Electra as you can see from my profile picture.

Hi there! Electra Phoenix, yes? They came with notched oe smooth speed knobs or - rarely - with the Switchmaster tapered ones. Which are as rare as rockinghorse poo. Unless one of the inmates here has a spare, keeping an eye on the online auction houses is about your only chance as they were peculiar to Westone, and sometimes to Electra!

These missing knobs, I think, have caused more hand wringing for Spectrum/Electra owners here than just about anything else. They're completely unique to Westone and nothing else quite does it.

We used to have a talented member or two who generously spent their time to produce some reproductions, but even those have appeared to dry up.

Best bet is likely to try and find another "beater" Spectrum/Electra and harvest its organs! tongue
