  Compact Mono Jacks (2 of)
"Compact Mono Jacks (2of)" include 2 Lumberg compact mono jacks with your kit. These jacks are small in size, a good choice for tight builds and beginners but can be used for any build. Please note you will need a stereo jack if you plan to power your effect with a battery. (Stereo jacks are available in the hardware section of this store).





  Miniature DC Jack

These DC jacks are very small and are suitable for any build not using a battery / battery switching. Especially good for 1590a builds as they are very compact.



  Knobs
These knobs are a high quality aluminium with a grooved circumference for a nice tactile feel and a full faced indicator line. They are small in diameter (13mm), can be used for any pot that has a 6.35mm shaft but will also fit the tight spacing needed for 1590a builds
