"Art of Aging" Premium "CAB" Gold Top Hats (4)

Brandnew..."CAB" - Version of the Premium Gold Tophats... made of cellulose acetate resin/Butyrate, a popular material back then known to be static free, has a pleasant clinging feel for the player's delight. It will be the ultimate proof that this product is not just a vintage lookalike. It embodies a world of craftsmanship filled with elegance, nostalgia, and universal emotion. A touch darker compare to our Premium Knobs will give those knobs the ultimate Vintage look...for sure the feel of real "CAB". By the way...you will not find better knobs in this pricerange!

These knobs are custombuild to highest Standards and all the nice details of Vintage Tophats, Embossed No's, incl. rolled edges and Vintage tinted color.... Replicating such details as side skirt, edge, knurls, and numbers can produce perfect knobs. The process where white paint is injected into each number with deft hand work is reminiscent of a cream decoration performed by a Parisian patissier.

Following this painting, which requires the same amount of time, effort and pride as the old times, the numbers are then topped with specially blended gold powder.
A blend of Secret Mix of Goldpowders and Special Colors provides improved 'aged' abillity, i.e. naturally 'aged' looks, in spite of artificial ageing process.
