I need to crack the Casio open, she is real dodgy right now and could use a good bending. I've never tried, but I'm looking to buy a soldering iron and start on my bandmate's dead monotron :D

That black style flip is sick! I bought a can of Performix Plasti-Dip, which is a spray on rubber coating (only $8, intended for grips of hand tools). I tested the product on a pen cap last night to see how it covers and how good the grip is going to be and...you'll be seeing pics soon of my rubber coated ESX. Just the knobs and for practical purposes too, no more slippin :D

And here it is :twisted: Added a sticker from my group and painted the other dials and slider.

Cool :)

Are you going to mark a glow in the dark line on top to show the current position of the dials? I guess the bevelled edge does it, just a thought.

Thanks! That's a good idea too, I've been trying to think of something, because the bevel doesn't stand out too much. Now to find a glow paint ;)

Is anyone aware of a thread or resource about making a tribe "your own"? For example, this rather cool picture of an EMX with Moog knobs..

I've seen the silver EMX-1 also, nice.

Hi, guys!! Excellent look, man!!

I'm looking to change the knobs on my ESX, could anyone please tell me what kind of knobs to look for ? Especially the sizes...which is the maximum diameter in mm that can fit ? Or, more exactly which is the right size?

Thank you!
