Lathe turned, billet stock, replica "Top Hat" Volume/Tone control knobs.

Faithful to the specification used on Brian's original Red Special, these rugged, solid aluminium knobs feature 6mm centre holes and are designed to fit modern, metric sized potentiometer shafts.

With extended use they will take on a distinctive, aged ‘’gun metal gray’’ patina.

Available in ALUMINIUM or GOLD finish.

These knobs are stock equipment on the BMG Super and on all (post-2017) BMG Special models.

Shipped promptly, fit great
Monday, 21 February 2022  | 

The knobs were shipped promptly to me (I live in the US) and I am happy with them. They fit great and do the job. The old ones had no position indicator. Not much you can say about guitar knobs!

The very highest quality
Tuesday, 15 February 2022  | 

The control knobs are of the very highest quality. Extremely professional. You get what you are paying for with this. The service went without any issues. The only thing that I can say that there is an issue with is the shipping price. It seems a bit high. There are other products that I would love to buy, but the shipping price is stopping me from the purchase. I decided to treat myself to the control knobs and not worry about it this time as I feel like I have a piece of something from an iconic guitar player/artist/musician/virtuoso/etc.

Thank you to Brian and the staff.

I love these knobs
Tuesday, 21 December 2021  | 

I love these knobs. All of my guitars have them. Brian May not only rocks at pretty much everything, but he has great taste in the aesthetics of a guitar.

What a difference in look, and much better control!
Thursday, 21 October 2021  | 

The product was out of stock on the website so I entered my email for any updates. Within two days the item was available and I ordered it. The knobs arrived very quickly and now fitted to my old (2015) BMG Special. What a difference in look, and much better control! They fitted better than the original chrome plated ones which were slightly awkward to rotate quickly. Thank you for making these available.

So much nicer than the previous set fitted to my 2015 model
Tuesday, 3 November 2020  | 

Lovely quality control knobs that look and feel better than the originals supplied with my 2015 model guitar. A tad on the expansive side but I expect these are produced in smaller quantities than more 'mainstream' controls. Delivery and communication from BMG was fast and efficient. Thanks

Authentic dimensions, satin finish and knurl
Wednesday, 21 October 2020  | 

I have bought two sets of these control knobs recently because they look more aesthetically pleasing than any other Brian May Red Special knobs I have seen or bought over the years. One set is destined for a 2004 Burns/BMG Signature guitar I am upgrading and the other set will be fitted to the authentic Brian May Red Special replica I completed building in summer 2020. See my website (dsgb.net) for details.

As far as I am aware, the 'skirt' diameter should be 1 1/4" (31.75mm) and the items are correct (in fact, 32.0mm which is the nearest metric equivalent). However, the most pleasing feature, and one which I am particularly fussy about, is the knurl which appears to be the same as Brian's original knobs in two important respects: (a) narrow ridge spacing and (b) applied to the full height of the central grip. I note that this design is different to a previous one offered by BMG (which was shiny and had a sharp knurl ridge with a wider spacing) and is better in my opinion. Beware of other aftermarket versions, some of which have flaws such as badly applied or incorrect knurl.

These do the trick
Friday, 27 September 2019  | 

These are just what I wanted. I bought a cheap knock off Brian May guitar (Ivy IBM-200 TRD) but I didn't like the knobs that came on the guitar, so these do the trick. Thanks Brian!

Now my Red Special is complete!
Monday, 16 September 2019  | 

Loved my Red Special from the moment I got it, but really wanted to replace the plastic knobs. Took a while for the aluminum (U.S. spelling) ones to come back in stock, but then they arrived mere days after I ordered and look and feel BEAUTIFUL!

Thanks to Brian and everyone at BMG!

Excellent Accessory!
Monday, 9 September 2019  | 

I have the earlier version of the BMG Special with the smaller knobs. I ordered these to bring it up to spec with the current offering and also make mine closer to Brian's.

They look fantastic and are easier to grab for use. Now, if the white-tipped tremelo arm would become available, my BMG Special will be complete! I bought mine used and the seller had lost the original tremelo arm!

5 stars for the aluminum knobs!

Gorgeously made item
Monday, 9 September 2019  | 

I bought these as a replacement for my white Special which originally had the plastic chrome knobs - what an improvement! They really look the business and I'd highly recommend these if you have the older style knobs.

They are so good I understand Dr May himself has used one of these to replace one of his beloved original ones made with his father, which he lost recently - that's how good these are.

I had a long wait for them to come into stock but the quality of the item was well worth the wait.

Thanks BM Guitars!

Great Knobs
Tuesday, 30 January 2018  | 

I bought these for my Honey Sunburst BMG that I bought in 2014. The gold replica knobs make my guitar look more like a Red Special then the original smaller knobs. I'm very happy with knobs and they arrived in the USA within a week after ordering. Highly recommended for those who need the gold instead of the aluminum.

A nicer look to my BMG
Wednesday, 10 January 2018  | 

The quality of these buttons is very good and they fit perfectly on the potentiometer's shaft and they are blocked with a hexagonal locking nut. Nice little red dot on each button. Took a while to have these buttons in stock and shipped but they worth the waiting .
