    My "ear/brain combination" is having a hard time imagining that wooden knobs w a bronze insert could cause amazing sound improvements on throughput in a pot as opposed to a bakelite knob. That's for sure!

    I was just thinkin' about how much a pair of those knobs would increase the value of my Bullet Mustang,...:D

    OMG. That is 10 minutes I can never get back.

    I did a Google search on good ole Dieter. Wow. Just wow.
    He is a self proclaimed acoustic researcher and violin maker. His website babbles on about something he calls C37--supposedly there is a special sonic quality to carbon at 37 Degrees C. Lots of buzzwords but no semantic content. Mystical claptrap.

    I used to work with an actual "acoustic researcher" when I worked for a US Defense contractor. This guy did a lot of work on things like Sonar and wave propagation through seawater. Lots of actual science involved and way more complicated than one might at first believe. My Co-Worker did not talk like good ole Dieter.

    I believe Dieter is a quack.

    Just as I thought, just soo much snake oil. I'd bet good money that somewhere down the line he'll mention 'Cosmic Ice Theory' in his ramblings,....

    ... and 37C is human body temperature, not room temperature. So the seller should take those knobs and shove them... :eek::eek:

    Personally, I think EVERYTHING is over priced.
