I bought this to replace a missing 5th string tuner on an Epiphone 5-string banjo. This unit is slightly oversize, so provided a good, snug fit. The tuner action is very smooth and positive. A great product!
I ordered this tuning peg and it seemed like it was in my mailbox the next day! Great quality and lightning fast shipping!
I am a newbie on the banjo after years 46 yrs of guitar and bass I started with the banjo, the friction tuner on my import was a pain this made it much easier to stay in tune in the 5th string and enjoy
I have used 5 Star tuners on my banjos for years. They are smooth and accurate with no slipping. I only wish they would come with less tacky knobs so I would not have to buy ivoroid knobs seperately every time.
My one year old Rover RB-20 had the fifth peg explode on it during practice one night. I ordered the nickel Five-Star 5th string peg to replace it. It installed easily and works perfectly. I am very happy with the purchase. I only gave it four stars because it is an economy tuner.
nicely engineered & reasonably priced. worth spending the extra money to buy one of the alternate buttons that are available for this type - the standard buttons are a bit clunky.
very smooth operating gears...highest quality. fast installation with the Stew-Mac tapered tool...photos shows one of the optional knobs available
Replaced the old tuner with no problem. A little adjustment on the angle and hole size but with little or no problem. Smooth and easy to tune now. I recomend this to all.
I'm a guitar player who bought and loved an older Silvertone banjo. However, that friction fifth peg drove me bonkers. If you have one, you probably know what I mean.
I bought this one, not wanting to put a bunch of money in the banjo, just wanting to make it playable, along with item # 5017 to replace the tired original cheap tuners. For about $26 and some elbow grease, it's like a have a new banjo. It stays in tune, retunes when I change into a new tuning, and is just overall much more fun.
When I held it in my hand the first time I knew that this was a high quality product, in looks and feel! I installed it on a beginners banjo for a friend and was impressed with how well it stays in tune with even a new string from the start! I Highly recommend this product to anyone!
