Unlikely that it is thimble less. The STB’s weren’t unless it is the Benzing one. I think dark brown plastic case if I remember rightly. Has the thimble drum got plastic flaps that cover the chambers when struck? If they have then no you don’t need thimbles, you do just drop the rubber in the chamber.
Put up a photo if possible and I’ll know.

You will need thimbles with that one. I think you need the thin open ended ones. I will have a look and check.

The only place I can find any is from Boddy & Ridewood. If you look at thimbles on there website you can find options. There are a few different sorts. I think the ones you want are the open ended aluminium ones. £4.99 for 10. The only thing is, there isn’t any pictures of them, so not absolutely positive.
When did you get the clock and obviously who you got it from had no thimbles???
Let us know what you think.

I started out with an stb clock and still have a few thimbles I can send you,, I have some plastic and some brass, don't know if they will fit yours but could be worth a try. PM me your address and I will post them to you.
