Economy A-style Mandolin Tuners

About This Item

Ideal tuners for fixing up those not so valuable, but dearly loved instruments.

14:1 ratio with white plastic knobs. Nickel-plated.

29/32" (23.02mm) string post spacing.
5/16" (7.94mm) diameter pegholes required.

Each set includes:
• Pair of 4-left, 4-right tuning machines
• Press-fit bushings
• Mounting screws


Installation Tips

Peghole spacing: Plate-mounted tuners can't work efficiently if the pegholes are improperly drilled. Our Mandolin Peghead Drill Jig ensures precise 29/32" spacing for accurate alignment for these tuning machines.

Bushings: We recommend the Standard Peghole Reamer to cut smooth, perfectly round holes.

Mounting screws: Pilot holes required. Installing delicate screws into hard wood requires great care and accuracy. We highly recommend the #1712 Depth-stop Drill Bit (5/64" bit) for the pilot hole before installing these screws. Lubricate the screw threads with cutting lubricant (also wax or a bar of soap) to reduce friction and help them thread properly.

These tunners are decent and just what I expected as a cheap replacement for a cheap fender mando, they dropped right into place. The only disappointment was the very cheap feeling plastic buttons. I mean for 20 bucks I didn't expect something amazing, but was hoping for a little better than they are.

Good but not perfect

And it's not about this mandolin tuners but the mandoline head. Original mandolin tuners had a 115 mm long and this mandolin tuner it is not large enough. I had to use a drill to enlarge a hole but, at last, it seems to fit.

Unfortunately I lost a part of the mandolin and I have couldnt try it...

In other hand, I am really happy to find your page because, here in Monterrey, is really dificult to find pieces to fix a mandolin and I have had to use jewelry tools instead of use luthier's tool. Now, I know where to find it.

Better than I expected

I put a set on a 38 Kalamazoo A-type. Fit perfectly, though I had to do new screw holes.

They work better than the price would suggest. Wish I had done it long ago.

I purchased a great little mandolin at a garage sale for $6.00. The machine tuners were bad, so I replaced them with these and they work great!

Just what I needed for the thrift-store mandolin

I bought a tired old mandolin from a thrift store. The tuners were nearly unusable so I put on a set of these. I had to drill out the peg holes a little but other than that, installation was a snap. It took all of an hour start to finish and now they work quite well.

Made in china, very poor, in my country there's a lot of better tuners.

I've owned a late '50's Sicilian concert mandolin (flat- backed) since the early '80s, and when I got it the tuning machines were shot. A few years back tried replacing with Schallers, and though they were expensive, necessary modifications to their pot-metal chassis proved problematic. THESE from StewMac were just what the doctor ordered and much more like the originals: due to the weird design of the mandolin I had to go to town with a bench grinder and drill new string and mounting holes, but I knew that going in. The steel backing plate and the fact you can disassemble the gears and shafts facilitated all the necessary mods, and the end result is great. Turns out this mandolin was manufactured by one of Django Reinhard's favorite luthiers..
