Thread: Nylon strap button washers

    Nylon strap button washers

    Hi. I have an SR5 that I bought second hand, and it came with Schallers on it. Not a problem in itself, I've already changed to the straplock system of my choice, but those little nylon washers that sit between the strap button and the body were missing.

    I thought it would be easy to find correctly sized nylon washers on fleabay, but there's just too much to choose between, and some dimensions are stated in millimeters and some in inches, so I'm scratching my head here. Does anybody know where to find the right washers online?

    After all:



    Btw, the outer diameter is approx. 12.7 mm (1/2"), I think.

    when did EBMM start using those? My SR5 came with them, and still has them, but if the SR4 ever had them, they are long gone.

    I've never found any source for those. Other mfg. use a felt-like "washer" in there. I did, once, cut up an old t-shirt as a make-shift felt-style washer. Not proud of that, but we do what we must.

    I found some rubber washers at Home Depot.

    Try the drum section at your local music store. They have oodles of little plastic washers in various sizes.

    A kinder, gentler collection...

    the thing is, the plastic washers used by EBMM on the upper strap button are actually shaped to match the curve of the upper horn. you'd have to sand down a flat washer.

    Sorry to disagree, but I'm pretty sure that the washers are just flat and flexible.

    Yes, I have a couple on my EBMM basses' upper horns that have the curve. Maybe it's a newer model feature.

    No kidding! Couldn't you just stick a couple in an envelope with a stamp?

    that's how the ball rolls these days. That's shipping, and handling. Probably easier to order some other stuff with it. I may see if they can throw some in with my SR5 when it comes back to put onto my SR4.

    That's great news! Only the best for my Stingray. But I can't seem to find it on the website. Do you have a link, or an email address I can write to?

    I hope they ship internationally.
