    Hello A&H, I want to purchase some colored faders and pot knobs for my Qu desk. I note the GL faders are compatible (see here) so I presume any of these will work. What about pot knobs; any analogue desks that use the same design? Thank you.

    You should find most fader knobs will fit from other consoles, just pick up some other coloured ones off eBay, as for the rotary knobs, I would assume they’re designed just for the QU.

    Jake,

    Any fader knob designed for the A&H GL series will work. I was going to get some from Full Compass, but found a company from Germany on ebay that sells them MUCH cheaper. They should be arriving any day. I’ll let you all know what I think when they get here.

    I haven’t researched rotary knobs yet.

    Well, I finally had some time to try out the new fader knobs. They do fit. A bit more snug than the original knobs that come with the QU32 and the knobs I robbed from my old GL2 mixer. They are also just slightly wider than the other two, but work just fine.

    This is where I bought mine on eBay – http://www.ebay.com/itm/6-professional-FADER-KNOB-cap-GREY-0-5-x-0-1-slider-potentiometer-replacement-/351703143027?hash=item51e3241273:g:sfkAAOSwgApXB-Zz

    The seller’s ID on eBay is “familygate”. It took a couple of weeks to get, but they came from Germany and I’m in the midwest USA. Not surprising. I bought three different colors. Not as many colors as I’ve seen on Full Compass’ site, but WAY less expensive! Full Compass wants $3 – 4 each. I bought 20 knobs for about $35 including shipping from Germany.

    I’m trying to upload pictures, but not having any luck. If I can figure this out, I’ll get some pix up.

    Hi Joel, I am also in the midwest,, St. Louis where abouts are you?
    do you have a way to upload the pictures to a web space provider? I use my website,
    that’s what you need to do then in the post you make, click on the img tab and insert the web address (link) to your picture.

    The GL series fader knobs are perfect fit and
    in my humble opinion should be made available to QU users easily and at a very inexpensive price?
    This promotes their product!

    Since these are regular ALPS fader caps, they are available nearly everywhere. Poti knobs are a different story…

    If you host your images on a hosting site such as Photobucket or the like, then all you need to do is paste in the image tag link. It will be something like [IMG]www.photobucket\fredspictures\image1223.jpg[\IMG]. Hopefully that will work for you.
