    True, but his price is by now over my budget.

    Did you look at the link I gave in post #7? Lots of different inlays, $63 a set. Mark Curry makes plain silver ones (no inlay) that are different, and they are only $25 a set from Dillon Music... Dillon Music - Curry Lightweight Finger Buttons

    I have a set of them - they are polished silver on top, too. The dark areas in the picture are just reflections.

    Hi, Dale

    Thanks, the last one is very interesting. About the 63$ sets, are they nice? Because it's not real stone, right?

    Best to ask this question of the seller....

    Yeah, I'd guess the $63 ones are colored plastic. If you want real stone/shell inserts in a Bach button, the ones sold by Bach are probably your best bet. They are more expensive, though.

    I eventually put those silver ones on my silver Bach trumpet and got Mark to sell me a raw brass set for my cornet, which I had lacquered at a local shop...

    Thanks for the ideas!

    I'm going to buy a silver horn and find it a bit "boring" so I'd like to give it some color or gold. But at it's merely a matter of aesthetics, I prefer not to spend too much on it.

    If money wouldn't be a problem I'd probably go for Harrelson's:
