Simple, but effective

By: Alan on 30 June 2020
They say that the best ideas are often the simplest, and that probably applies to these "Brakepads" ..... I own far too many guitars (don't we all? :-)), and some of them have control knobs that are easily dislodged from my usual settings in transit, or during set-up. In particular, I have a five-string bass with four plain control knobs that have no markings on them — so you don't easily spot their being off their optimum spots. It took only a few minutes to whip the knobs off, insert the brakepads, and replace the knobs. That gave me controls that were still easy to adjust, but require a little more finger pressure to do so, meaning that they're less likely to inadvertently "drift" ..... I needed to buy two sets of these to cater for the four knobs but, at the price, that's not gonna break the bank anyway. As I said in the title: simple, but effective. ..... Oh, one word of warning — when you get these, read the instructions! I initially didn't bother (who needs instructions?!?), and wasted time trying to attach the adhesive part of the brakepads to the guitar, instead of to the knob itself. Works much better when you do it the way they designed it! :-)
