Schertler tuning pegs

(Customer's Reviews)

These tuners are wonderful. Their action is so smooth and work as well as tuners I've used that are many times the price. The all black finish is elegant and suit my bowed dulcimers well. Highly recommended.


Schertler slot-head SS tuners-my new fave

(Customer's Reviews)

I love these tuners. Modern, elegant look, very accurate machining, smooth action with no slop in the mechanism. I just ordered a couple more sets.
Tip: if you are using these tuners, do yourself a favor, and get the StewMac peghead bushing reamer, part number 2065, .393" (9.98mm)
This tool will make installation of the Schertler tuners a breeze, with an exact fit of the tuner post flange.


Very, very nice

(Customer's Reviews)

I installed these on my banjo build. I love the look and they work great. High quality. I installed by drilling carefully with a 10mm brad point, then 1/4" brad point for the shaft, then reaming for the flange by turning the 10mm by hand.
