Kluson 4-On-Plate Supreme Series F-style Mandolin Tuners

About This Item

Upgrade your vintage F-style mandolin without modifying your headstock.

Kluson's newest addition to the Supreme series tuning machines. Based on the original Kluson deluxe stamped steel tuning machines, the Kluson Supreme Series tuning machines are the next generation in stamped steel design for your mandolin.

Using original Kluson 4 per plate mandolin tuning machine mounting specs, the new Supreme mandolin tuning machines look almost identical to the originals with the exception of the “Kluson Supreme” series name in double row appearance on the housing.

You will immediately notice increased performance, fine tuning stability and a super smooth feel. By incorporating steel string posts, correct-sized round mandolin buttons and the addition of a high 18:1 gear ratio this is a real game changer. Includes all mounting hardware.

Replacement for Grovers


Verified Buyer

Recently installed on an inexpensive Washburn F-style acoustic/electric mandolin. The OEM tuners were difficult due to low ratio and lack of preciseness. Replaced with Gover F-style (309 series) worms over (like OEM) and tuning stability was improved, but they tuned backwards which was annoying. I got the Klusons because they will work with the worms over holes in the headstock. Fortunately I have a peg reamer because I had to open up the holes a little. Otherwise, it was an easy replacement and solved the tuning direction issue.
