You saved me again. I broke one of the tuning knobs off of my mandolin. I called and ordered a replacement. The gentleman on the phone was very helpful in suggesting what I needed to fix it. The shipping was super fast and the part you sent was just what I needed to fix my mandolin. Again you saved me with your helpful instruction on the phone, and super fast shipping. I am an extreamly satisfied customer! I play bluegrass gospel with the Southern Harmony Boys and we didn't miss a beat thanks to you!
I put a set of these buttons in Ebony on an 1993 Washburn Solid Wood F style mandolin that I own because a couple of years ago the factory pearloid buttons split and I have been unable to find a replacement since. WOW do these things look great with the gold hardware. I have always preferred the sound and playability of this Mandolin to my Gibson F style and now thanks to these new knobs I am able to play it again. These are the best knobs I have ever used, Thanks StewMac.
Used this to replace a key on a wonderful mando that, unfortunately, has non-stamdard tuning pegs. Had to modify the hole a bit, but it got her playable again.
I ordered Waverly ivoroid replacement knobs for my Sumi mandolin not realizing the knob I broke was pearloid or pearl. I recieved the order fast and the replacement knob fit perfectly. I am using the ivoroid off color to the rest knob that nobody seems to notice but me.
I have a beautiful Ibanez 529 vintage mandolin and one of its tuner knobs was broken. I purchased one tuner knob replacement but its color didn´t match the other knobs. The Ibanez has perloid tuner knobs whereas Stewart MacDonald only stocks ivoroid tuners knobs, so my purchase was not useful. It would be great to have these perloid tuner knobs available from Stewart MacDonald in the near future.
A customer brought in an older Newance mandolin(a low-end Japanese laminated instrument) in terrible shape. Had a bad bridge (easily enough fixed) but the tuners were really in bad shape. I thought about doing a wholesale replacement but the tuner holes used nonstandard spacing which ruled that out - the cost of the repair wouldn't support plugging the existing holes, refacing the peghead, redrilling, and mounting new machines. So I got these knobs, cleaned up the grotty green ends of the old tuner shafts, and set to work. I thought about using superglue to attach them but didn't trust the shaft metal - even after removal and wire-brushing, they didn't look that good. So I mixed up a tiny batch of thickened West System epoxy (colored to match the buttons) and used that to mount them. It worked like a charm - they mounted sturdily and solidly and tune well.
Yet another good thing from StewMac.
The Knobs were very easy to install, just remove the old cracked ones with a pair of wire cutters then fill the new tuner button about 1/2 way with super glue and put it on the tuner shaft until it is full seated and allow the glue to cure for several hours. now my tuners are like new again
