In case you don't know already, you can also find out the material node's type if you drop down the material, drag it into the python shell and write after it “.type().name()” and it will return the type name. ie:

hou.node('/mat/principledshader1').type().name()
very helpful!

hou.node("/mat").createNode("materialbuilder")
awesome, that should open the way for me.
right now I am learning about how the new shader stuff works in houdini.
I really only need a simple diffuse shader with nothing fancy.

Thanks so much, houdini sure is an adventure to learn!
