Minimoog Model D Knob Replacement

I want to replace the knobs on a Model D MiniMoog. Which method is the best to remove the knob and replace with a new one?



nevermind, found out you need to hex unscrew the knob.

Just pull them off?
There might be small drops of adhesive to prevent them from detaching by themselves.

edit: Oh Moog has the screwed ones.

Yep, a hex screwdriver is necessary to remove them

Why would you want to replace them, are they damaged?

I overtightened a knob on my Minimoog and it split in two.

I'm guessing they are made of Bakelite? The modern Moog knobs i've seen appear to be made from a different plastic. Presumably stronger, but not as retro!

Luckily I managed to glue the original knob back together.

Yes unfortunately one knob cracked and a piece fell of the "base" of the circle of the knob. To be expected for something 32 years old.

some of the newer replacement moog knobs I've seen have metal collars on the inside, although I've seen ones without too. I'd definitely try to get the ones with the metal, they don't put pressure on the plastic when you tighten the screw and so are less likely to crack.

Where could I get those? Does the Voyager have the metal ones?

yep - they're the same knobs I use on my modular stuff. I can't recall where I got mine at the moment - i bought a bag of them in bulk for use with my modular. Can't speak to the voyager question though. However, I am pretty sure they're a standard part that you can even order from like mouser or something. I don't know the part numbers off hand though.

Ah, i think this is who makes them:
