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.

Ebony knobs on Five -Star Tuning Pegs were a natural choice, Customer Service provided great assistance to ensure compatibility. Thank you.

Ebony Tuner Knobs

These knobs do not exactly fit the tuner shaft and the holes have to be slightly enlarged. It is not a big deal if you know how and have the right tools. But, it is probably frustrating if you don't. Because they are ebony they could easily splinter if not enlarged properly. If you are new to this, just take your time and be careful. By the way, they slide onto the shaft easily, but it is the screw hole that needs enlarging so the screw can go back on. They look fabulous on a banjo. I have put them on four so far.

Works well on a Deering Goodtime

Used this to replace my 2004 Goodtime (gumby head) 5th string peg button. Perfect match on the shaft. The screw does not fit flush with the button (you could drill it out to do so) but I like the screw head sitting on top of the button. The ebony looks good with the black inlays and nut.

Appreciate fast delivery when banjo knob cracked. A tiny rat tooth file to slightly enlarge hole would be a great item to sell. I needed to enlarge hole in knob to get it to fit. Not a big problem. Thanks

Fitted a set of Ivoroid Galalith knobs to my 5 Star tuners - snug fit, didn't need to fettle them at all. Looks really smart now, very pleased.

Classy

I recently bought the Ivoroid and Ebony tuning pegs and both are perfect fits on my 5-star planetary and 5th string tuners. The ivoroid look classier than I expected, and I expected them to look classy to begin with, so that's saying something!
