Micro Banjo Tuner

By

Verified Buyer


I am extremely pleased with this tuner. It fit's on my Ramsey "Woody" perfect. I don't like the "look" of a tuner clipped on the head stock of a nice instrument. My banjo has a nice inlay and a clip on tuner distracts from that. The function of the tuner is just fine. One review said that you can't see the tuner very well, which I don't understand, because when I look straight down where the neck meets the pot, there it is. I don't have to remove it to put it in the case.

Measure your hook spacing first

By

Verified Buyer


Tuner works well on banjos with 1 1/2 inch spacing between hooks, which is what most 11 inch pot banjos with 24 hooks have. The maximum hook spacing that will work with this tuner is about 1 5/8 inches. So for many student-level banjos, as well as some higher end banjos with fewer hooks, this tuner will not stay on the instrument. I think the item description should have been clearer about this. Also the tuner has limited range of motion to pivot away from the pot. I had to position mine on the underside of the banjo so I could read this display. Otherwise the tuner works well, accurate and largely unobtrusive.

Good but needs longer attachment band

By

Verified Buyer


The tuner is accurate, small, discreet but the attachment band needs to be longer to accommodate banjos with fewer hooks.
