Bought the kids a used "starter" banjo. These aligned perfectly into the old mounting holes to make the instrument look new again and work like a charm.
These are good value for the money and work quite well.
I changed these for my brother. He loves them, he said they stay in tune great. They fit just fine without having to change anything.
Good dollar value for a hard to find item. Not the best but they work. Really good delivery and fast.
I have to say for economy tuners these work excellent and do a good job of holding the instrument in tune,the only issue i have is the plastic bushings they come with as i bought a set for the same price last year and they came with nickel plated cast ones,great tuners but i wouldn't use the plastic bushings.
Purchased a set of economical banjo tuners for an older Japanese made banjo that I have.They were easy to install, I used the old metal ferrules instead of the plastic ones provided. I had to drill one new hole per tuner to align properly,and the old hole was covered by the new tuner. Did not use the fifth string friction tuner,but an older geared tuner I had.They work smoothly and hold tune well for the price paid.Good value for the money, thanks Stew-Mac.
I ordered a set of economical banjo tuners to help restore my 1888 August Pollmann to a playable condition. The order process was easy, the price was good and the delivery was as promised. I will use Stewmac again in the future.
Got a set of these for a 1960's Kay Banjo I restored, hold tune very well. I replaced the ferrules with some old ones I had, as they aren't very attractive... One of the mounting screws had no recess in the head, so I had to use another screw (I've got a large collection of tuner screws) so no biggie... but would be a drag if I wasn't covered.
The Keys Worked Great On My Old Time Banjo Though I Had To Plug The 5TH string And Redrill But It Was Worth It .
These tuners worked well as replacement for an "economy" banjo that came into my shop recently. The banjo had a broken 5th string tuner. Rather than just replace the 5th string tuner, I decided to spend the extra couple of bucks to make sure everything matched.
The 5th string tuner was a tight fit, but installed without any modification to the existing hole. This set matches well with many of the inexpensive banjos on the market - no mods needed.
