Control knobs

The various DeArmond companies used a wide range of control knobs on their products. These knobs may sometimes be required when repairing or renovating DeArmond products, but identifying them can be a problem. It is hoped that the following photos and sketches may help in this process.

The DeArmond companies also provided complete pre-wired looms which incorporated a fully interconnected wiring loom with pickups, switches, jack-sockets, potentiometers and knobs to almost all of their musical instrument manufacturing customers. An example of such a loom is that shown for a Fender Coronado guitar in the section ‘Fender’ in this site.

The control knobs are shown below in chronological order, with the earliest first.
