The set includes four open-gear guitar-style tuners, plus bushings to adapt the tuners for 3/8"-diameter pegholes.

These tuners have 14:1 ratio and include mounting screws. The non-geared friction 5th string peg has a tension screw. All tuners have pearloid plastic knobs.

(Note: Our replacement knobs will not fit these tuners.)

To be sure these tuners fit your instrument, compare your existing machines and peghole dimensions to our listed specs to help determine the best replacement.

Just What The Doctor Ordered

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.

Banjo Tuners

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.

Great tuners/bad plastic bushings.

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.

Eco tuners do the job

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.

Great Service

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.

Good tuners for cheaper projects

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.

Keys Work Great

The Keys Worked Great On My Old Time Banjo Though I Had To Plug The 5TH string And Redrill But It Was Worth It .
