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.

Excellent Tuners

I prefer black ebony tuner buttons on my banjo rather than white ones. Over the past 10 years I have purchased dozens of these tuner buttons. They fit well on the banjo (no slippage) and last forever. Highly recommend them.

Perfect fit, and they look great on my old Gibson

I recently installed a set of Five Star tuners on my 1967 RB-170 to replace (probably) the original worn tuners and mangled Grover friction tuner. The new tuners were a great choice, but I didn't care for the flashy knobs.

Today, I received a set of five Ivoroid Galalith knobs, item #3305, to replace what came on the Five Star tuners. After reading all the reviews, I had my files all ready to modify the new knobs to fit, but all five FIT PERFECTLY right out of the box. What a treat! In no more than 10 minutes, I had all the knobs installed, and they look great....much like the original buttons that would have come on this banjo.

Thank you Stewmac for a great product and rapid shipping!

Nice, but did not fit

By

These are nice looking knobs (ordered one of each), but they DO NOT fit the Deering Goodtime banjo 5th string peg. The knob holes are too large for this 5th string peg.

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

Ebony Tuner Knobs

By

Verified Buyer


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.
