Jewelry for your instrument • A vintage material is reborn
Our ivoroid knobs, pins, and strap buttons are made of Galalith, a dense and durable casein-based material that polishes beautifully. Popular in the early 20th century, Galalith is found today in collectible vintage jewelry. It cannot be molded; each pin is precisely machined and has none of the unsightly mold lines common to plastic pins.

Look appearance, but...

While these knob have a great vintage appearance, some of the knobs had an overly tight fit on my four Five Star tuners. I had to file out the holes. On my Five Star fifth string tuner, the knob was very loose.

Fifth

Quick and easy fix a slipping knob. I needed to add a small washer under the new knob to provide tension for the fifth string peg on which the knob was used.

These ivroid knobs look way better than the pealoid
five star knobs. I bought two sets.Unlike other reviewers, mine didnt fit that great.I had to add tape to the tuner spindle, and there is still some play

Go Amber!

Just a little different--look old-time but I've never seen "amber" tuners of the 70 year old variety. Nice dash of color for my Reiter Vega-style Tubaphone. They fit well and are just a little "different" in an understated kind of way. Great replacements for the Pearloids that came with the banjo which just didn't fit the open-back, scooped ebony fingerboard.

Best Ivoroid Buttons I've Found

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Across the years I have picked up buttons from other sources. They didn't have the profile of these grained ivoroid buttons from Stewart MacDonald. These buttons have a smaller, less obtrusive shape to them. I needed to fit one to an odd 5th string peg and it was a breeze to work down.

Recently purchased a new open-back tubaphone from Mr. Bart Reiter. The amber knobs fit and give the old-time touch that the white pearloid just don't have!!!

Ordered these to replace the buttons on my Bishline. Snug fit with no modification.
