I'd like to make a MIDI controller knob box with LED indicators around the encoders. All I've found so far are a discontinued board from Mayhew Labs that would have been perfect, and the SparkFun COM-14967 which is [imath]11.50 each. The LEDs alone would cost[/imath]92 with 8 encoders and at that price point I'll just buy the Behringer X-Touch Mini.

It would be nice to make this a battery operated Bluetooth device since latency isn't a huge issue, but does anyone know of any other encoder LED rings that are more reasonably priced?

That Amazon one is 80 mm, kinda big to put around a 6 mm shaft. Though I haven't explored AliExpress, thanks for pointing that out.

Sorry, that 6mm limit wasn't mentioned in your original post.

Hello,

The smallest I could find is 8 leds with an inner diameter of 16 mm and an outer diameter of 32 mm:
