Great Mandolin Tuners

By mando1 from Rapidcity SD
(Customer's Reviews) Monday, April 29, 2013


I bought a F-5 Kit From Stewmac around 1992 and bought a set of cheap tuners, I have stuggled with the tuning and thought it was the way I put the kit together. After installing the Waverly Tuners I can fine tune and the Instrument stays in tune. The tone is better because my F-5 is actually in tune. Great Tuners
