On sandcast enclosures the knobs were roughly centered between the Tone Bender logo and LEVEL/ATTACK. The die cast enclosures have the knobs higer up, so that they cover up the logo in some positions. Moving them knobs up for the last reissue batch must have been what made the screen printer nervous about the placement.

Maybe the ones with the higher print are left overs from the last batch?
Lower LEVEL and ATTACK. :badteeth:
That was my mistake. :badteeth:
I did have a size reference, but I guess the image the graphics were based on was a little distorted. It's only a slight difference, though. The distance between the bottom of the Level/Attack labels and the top of the Input/Output labels seems to be about 2mm larger on vintage units.

I like the way everything is placed on batch 4. Please don't change anything! :oldgrin:
Everything is transitional.

Batch 3, looks like the 1966 Beat Instrumental advert pedal.
