Louie, did you see this thread over at AGF?  He's claiming they'll fit Larrivee's.  I know they're about a ten spot more per set too.

 



+ shipping from Singapore $$$$$$$$ , I'd rather not take shipment from Singapore, then what if they don't fit?????????????????

The Schaller tuner shafts are very slightly larger than the pings, but only slightly.  Most schaller buttons will fit the pings with a TINY bit of play, but this is a feel thing and NOT a tuning thing, they hold tune exactly like the original ping buttons.  I get mine from this place http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/rothesay_music/ which is expensive, but are fabulous quality - faultless, and the delivery charges to the states is reasonable and they are super fast.  I live in Scotland, hence why I founnd them, but other forum members use them too and rave about their products.

I have a set of ivoroid ones on my OM-03 with pings, and they work brilliantly, and look brilliant.  They do rosweood, koa, pearl, ebony, tortoiseshell and ivoroid I think.  Best quality I have seen, really.

The mini ones will fit mini shallers, but will not fit mini pings (like on Larrivee parlours and 12 strings) very well, because the ping buttons have the spring inside the button, and these ones don't.  They fit, but the screw sits proud and looks a bit funny.

For standard sized pings though, I cant recommend them highly enough.

Look at this thread for pics of mine on my old D-09, and pics of Michael Ts DV-09 with tortoiseshell ones (Michaels are the mini ones - which fit the standard tuners OK, just not the mini tuners, if that makes sense - they are only a wee bit smaller).

Hope this helps you out a bit.  I have no affiliation to the seller at all, just a happy customer.

I got the buffalo horn buttons from LMII at a good price and love them.

I found that these worked very well on my OM-03 BW.

Should have kept the buttons when I sold it.

Here is a thread when it was resold...pics on page one and two, for those who want to see how nicely Ivoriod buttons go with the Ivoriod fretboard binding.
