Hi guys. I have a metal dome knob that keeps dropping off my volume pot. Any hints on how to keep it on? I've re-attached, tighten the screw etc. Still happens.

I have three other Suhrs that never had that issue but this one knob is driving me crazy!

You could try some Loctite 'threadlock'...or maybe a tiny dot of superglue would do?

Use a low tack threadlock which won't work loose but will allow you to remove the knob at a later date.

Is it solid or split shaft pot ?

Hi guys. It's a solid shaft pot.

Not sure, that is an odd one, we could send a new knob to you dealer if you contact customer service.
Thanks
