The latest innovation in tuner technology
Using an exclusive cycloidal gear design, these 10:1 ratio tuners keep your friction peg-style guitar in tune gig after gig.
Set of six! Give your guitar a completely unique look
The iconic Martin guitars of the 1930s and earlier featured banjo-style pegs, and sets of six were nearly impossible to find until now.
While friction-style tuners are beautiful, they have many problems. The unwound strings are prone to slip, and most of these tuners have only a 4:1 ratio. Renowned builder Bill Rickard saw this problem and knew he needed a better solution for his custom creations.
New cycloidal gear for unparalleled tuning accuracy
To solve these persistent tuning problems, Rickard rediscovered an old technology for this new tuner: the cycloidal gear. Used in clocks for centuries, the unique gear gives these tuners unrivalled accuracy and precision.
These revolutionary tuners have a much higher gear ratio (10:1) than those old tuners, and absolutely no backlash. The gear always has three points of contact internally, essentially locking the post in place. And, these tuners don't need tension screws or leather washers to keep the string from slipping—the gear holds everything tight.
Timeless design and looks
This high performance design keeps the same looks as those old-time tuners, so they'll feel right at home on any vintage or new guitar. The high quality plating and well-crafted knobs will give you a lifetime of solid performance.
The Boxwood knobs have a light caramel color, which compliments nearly any finish or appointment style.
For pegheads 7/16" to 3/4" (11.11mm x 19.05mm) thick. 3/8"-diameter pegholes required. The threaded hex bushing includes a washer to help protect the peghead finish. Set of 6.
