    I have a JCM 800 MK2 that is missing two knobs. These knobs have a little pointer on lower portion of the knob, in addition to the cap with the line on it.

    Anyone know if someone makes replacements out there?

    nope, nobody makes them. You'll have to scour the used market.

    People want crazy money for them. The best bet is to find a period solid state practice amp, that has them, & try to score it for less than the knob sellers...

    Anyone know if the caps of knock offs match the originals?

    I actually only need one knob as the other is the pointer style, just missing the silver cap portion.

    I purchased and hoarded a bunch of these before the prices spiked. Bob are yours the push on or set screw?

    perhaps try finding somebody selling an amp with a bunch of mis-match knobs and ask to buy one. Since this person is already selling the amp with mixed up knobs maybe he'll sell you one. Better yet, find a person close to home to buy in person fast....before he can research the price and gouge you.

    I've been looking for THESE types of knobs forever, but $40 is too rich for my blood when I used to get them for $10 (which is still a lot for a 5-cent piece of plastic)
