Small Fry (top left) and Launch Pad (bottom right) with white instead of black knobs. Though, I think the Small Fry would be even better (less crowded control layout) with these:

I like the white on the Launch Pad. 8-)

Maybe these white knobs for the Small Fry?

OK, an update here... I just tried new "Barber-looking" knobs on my Trifecta—same as what came on the pedal, except in cream instead of black. While I think they'd look good, they didn't fit well onto the pot shafts—either the metal pot shafts are large-ish, or the metal sleeve inside the knobs are small-ish. Possibly just a batch-tolerance thing, but either way I didn't want to force it. So, I'm keeping the cream Davies #1510's on there for now (they still look good anyways).

Stay tuned, though—for my next trick, I'll be trying gold (yes, gold!) Davies #1510's on my LTD...

I have the gold knobs here already! They look painted, not injected into the die. :|

Yup, those are the ones (with black index line, not white). If I beat you to the punch, I'll post some pics to see how it looks.

Okay, y'all... here's my LTD (standard) with the gold knobs; the gold matches pretty well (not exactly, but close enough). I think it looks particularly fancy; in fact, it kind of has this "royal/regal" look to it. I think I'll keep it this way for now.. the intent was for all of my black Barber pedals to have different color knobs—makes 'em a little easier to quickly distinguish when they're all sitting in close proximity, as in on the pedalboard.

I'm also attaching a photo of the aforementioned Trifecta, with what I'm calling "Barber-style knobs" in cream instead of standard black. (Mind you, the knobs didn't fit very well, so for the picture they're just sort of sitting on top; but from the perspective I took the photo you might never notice.)

Color is a tad bit off (crappy smartphone pics.. sorry!) but I think you get the point.
