Are they the GT master tuners with the large base and thin shaft? If they are, the ones from Stew mac will not work. If they are like these, maybe they will sell just the buttons.

I know of no aftermarket knobs that will fit Gold Tone tuners. Best to inquire directly to Gold Tone for replacements for knobs that all too often crack.

Bugger, that's annoying. Thanks for replying. Bob, I've got your tombstone Amber buttons on my tb2 with gotohs and although the gt masters feel OK as tuners, shy would they make them with a different size shaft to standard? It won't help. I just purchased an Ob3 which is great but things like this don't help their rep. I'm going to either alter the shaft or the buttons

Aren't Goldtone tuners the garden variety Asian ones that appear on most Asian banjos?

No they're not all the same.
