Currently working on a banjo (100+yrs). This is a new project for me, I usually mess with guitars (my own). Got a calfskin, a bridge, a tailpiece, strings, all recommended by StewMac, and MOST of all LOTS of good help and advice from ALL the people at the StewShop, (sorry about the nickname guys, it's a thing I have). Everything arrived when expected, (I am in Northern Ireland, not exactly "round the corner") Oops, got tension keys as well. Got to keep this old guy as near original as possible. After all, he's been sitting in an attic for, ????? years. Dried out, neglected, gotta feel sorry for him, needs some TLC. Anyway, this is really to say that, over the years I have had a good many dealings with StewMac, and these people make you feel like you are part of their "Family". If the above doesn't tell you how I feel about the parts I purchase, the service I get, and the general feeling of knowing, I see it, I order it, I ask about it. I'm gonna get satisfaction, EVERY TIME? Hey, it's a no brainer, Billy Harrison (THEM)

Plasstic looks cheap
I thought these tuners would work out for a budget banjo I've been making, they looked real nice and great reviews... but upon receiving them, was turned off by cheap construction and feel. Then after installing (which was a breeze), they take some getting used to - I guess I'm just not trying to "get used" to these; looking for a smoother tune and better price

Banjo tuners on an ukulele.
I installed these tuning pegs on an ukulele with a thicker (1/2") peghead and 11/32" diameter pegholes. The tuning pegs fit perfectly, work smoothly and , after proper adjustment, hold tuning very well. In my opinion, the vintage, traditional look of the pegs make my ukulele look great.
