Banjo Tuner Knobs

About This Item

Get your banjo looking as good as it sounds!
Swap out those worn-out tuner buttons with high quality replacement knobs! These knobs fit Waverly, Five-Star and other banjo peg shafts with two flat and two curved sides.

We've greatly expanded your choice of tuner buttons so that you can find the perfect custom look for your new banjo or restore a vintage original.

    Pick the look that's right for you
  • Ivoroid knobs are machined from Galalith, a dense and durable casein-based material that polishes beautifully. It resembles real ivory, but is a non-animal alternative.
  • Amber Swirl has the look of a loved knob that aged gracefully.
  • Ebony knobs are machined from real wood. They're lightweight and add a custom look to your banjo.
  • Cream has a vintage-correct look for many banjo styles.
  • Black gives a clean, contemporary style to your banjo.
  • Vintage Pearloid is semi-translucent and has the look of early plastics that compliments vintage hardware.

Modification of the knob may be required to fit your tuners.
All shaft hole dimensions are 0.20" x 0.15" (5mm x 3.8mm).
Dimensions: 0.89” wide x 0.82” tall x 0.43” thick (22.6mm x 20.8mm x 10.9mm)

These knobs will NOT fit Grover friction pegs, #0177 or #0175.

Sold individually.

color is not good

By

Verified Buyer


These were sold as Amber, and looked like that on line. when I received them they were Orange?
I thought when I put them on, the shaft would darken them some......but that didn't help. I took them off and ordered another set from another supplier who had Amber tuners.
If you like orange, they are fine. they fit really well, but if you are looking for something for a vintage instrument that has amber, you are in the wrong place.

Just what I needed

By

Verified Buyer


I have a Stelling Starflower banjo I got from my sister. The 5th string tuning knob fell apart one day while tuning. These replacement knobs fit perfectly and solved my problem. I'm not sure if they had been replaced before but the new knobs looked just like the ones that were on my banjo.

Perfect

This knob fit and looked perfect on my 1918 Orphem. Matched the original Grovers except for the 100 years of dirt.

Nice, but...

By

Verified Buyer


These fit well, but there was not enough amber and too much clear swirl which make them look a little cheap. Two of the five look great but the other three not so much! Not sure I'll keep them on this banjo.

I like this knobs very much. Improved the look of my banjo. If they were available with counter sunk holes pre-drilled I'd buy more.

Beautiful and fit perfectly

I bought these to replace my cheesy mother of pearl buttons on the 5 star tuners (I have an open back banjo). LOvely items and fit perfectly. Seemed a little pricey, but I guess you get what you pay for. Love stew mac!

Look Nice, Work Just Fine

I bought these to replace the pearlized plastic knobs that came on the Five-Star Tuners we put into my antique Tubaphone years ago, when pearlized plastic knobs was all that was available. They fit perfectly, work as well as the original knobs, and are a huge improvement aesthetically. They were a perfect fit on the Five-Star pegs, and were extremely easy to put on. Glad we made the small splurge. :).

Fit my old Baldwin Ode perfectly

The knobs on my old banjo had deteriorated after 35 years in storage. Two had split and were no usable. These knobs fit perfectly and resurrected my old friend.
