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.

Fit perfectly...really close match, even to 35 year-old other pegs.

Well, not for a banjo

My son left a mountain dulcimer here when he moved out; I decided to restring it, and when I went to tune it one of the buttons disintegrated in my hand.
The Stew-Mac knobs were reasonably priced, arrived more quickly than I expected, went on perfectly, and work great (well, as great as friction knobs can)

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
