    Hi, I'm looking for replacement knobs for my Marshall Reflector reverb pedal. The lines (markings) have rubbed off. Can some help please? Where can I get replacements or something similar?

    Can you just mark new lines on then. Check on ebay

    I'll try writing to him. Thanks for your help.

    Edit: how do I remove the knobs? Don't want to break anything. Do I pull them out?

    I suppose you could take them to a trophy engraver and have new marks put back on. I can't see that costing much.
    But the cost of new knobs could be the same as getting another Reflector 2nd hand.

    Engraving did cross my mind. At least it won't fade. Bugga. I bought this from a UK store and it'll cost me a lot to send back. I've written to them about this and asked if they could send me replacement knobs, perhaps from another pedal.

    No, they're in London UK, I'm in Australia. It'll cost £23 for me to send it back.

    I see. That is the condition they arrived in!

    If you like the pedal enough, I would just get them engraved. They just mask off to make the pointer line and grit blast it in.

    BTW I found this. D shaped shafts. The knobs may have sprung friction to retain them, or a grub screw.

    I should go ask around about engraving. I do like the pedal.

    Update. The shop in London contacted Marshall and they have replacement knobs! They'll send then to me. Great news!

    Holy cow yours are completely wiped off! You probably don't need the markings if you know your pedal well enough. I've seen people replacing them with compatible knobs.

    That image was grabbed off Google.
    I don't own a Reflector.
    A new set of plastic knobs may be the way to go. No chance of the pointer rubbing off.
    But as the pot shafts are D shaped you would need to get compatible knobs, and the pointers may not sit in the same orientation as the originals.

    A. You check carefully to see if the knob has a screw hole on the side. (check for set screws)
    If so, On these type metal knobs the set screw is turned by an Allen wrench (hex wrench).

    B. If the knob has no screw holes, it's a push-on type knob, and there is a special way to pull those type knobs off.
    You need a piece of nylon fishing line, or some strong thin twine, or wire etc...
    Watch video it shows how:
