Apologies if already posted elsewhere, but check this out. Antique Electronics is now selling Rogan knobs. They made them for the early Sunn amps.

These also appear on their commercial website cedist.com (https://www.cedist.com/products/knob-rogan-155-series-witch-hat-0-10). If you have an account there you'll save about 15%.

The numbered (0 -10) Rogan knobs Shown on AES website are the style used on Musicman amps. While similar to Sunn knobs, the numbers typeface used has a "square shoulder" rather than "rounded" as on Sunn amps. A small detail, but these won't match original Sunn knobs on your old amp.

Years ago, someone apparently commissioned Rogan for reproduction Sunn knobs and offered them for sale. I bought a bunch for restoration. More recently a forum member was considering another run of Rogan Sunn knobs, but it seemed that the cost vs. demand did not pencil-out.

Another Rogan knob on the AES website appears to match the earlier Sunn knobs with the large arrow in lieu of numbers. For a short time, Sunn had the numbers silk-screened on the control panel and used the arrow knobs.
