Does your Seeburg Piano have its original knobs? If so, is the
knurling straight or angled? What is your serial number?
I have found knobs with straight knurling on most of the Seeburgs
I have seen. The angled knurling can also go left or right. I have
the dies now made to engrave the lettering Castanets and Tambourine,
Piano, Mandolin, Flute, Violin, Xylophone. I need a punch to make
the 5/8-inch diameter plates. I have the stamping dies for Loud-Soft
All this work and I am probably the last person that needs a knob.
I made several extra knobs in the hopes that someone would need
them. I was not happy with the reproduction knobs I have seen. Many
reproduction knobs do not spell out the entire words as XYLOPHONE and
only abbreviate the word as XYLO. The face of some reproduction knobs
are a satin brass.
