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.

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.

Amber Swirl

By

Verified Buyer


These are different cut than the Black knobs I purchased before. The screw hole is not countersunk to accept the screw head. I will have to countersunk these... Not Acceptable.

Bought these to replace the dainty pearl knobs on my 5 star banjo tuners. These fit the posts well but are overall a bit smaller in overall exterior size. Now my banjo looks like a mans instrument.

Great finish and feel

These worked great. Love the look Used them on some square shafted tuners, the brand I do not know. Only required a few strokes with swiss file to get a fit.
