Now available, new tuners for historic banjos with thin shaft peg holes. High quality tuners from modern makers like Grover and Gotoh are hand customized in our shop. They are remade to vintage specs as replacements for Page and other antique tuners. They are guaranteed to fit Paramount banjos and others with no alterations to the instrument.
The shafts are the corrected diameter and the mounting screw hole will line up perfectly with the original hole used for the Page tuner. No matter which version of Page tuners you are replacing we make the specs right for that series. (some of the original tuners used 2 screw holes, our replacements only use 1 )
Pictures show a Paramount Style B and Langestile Deluxe featuring our adapted Gotoh tuners. Conventional tuners would have required the owner or a technician to enlarge the peg head holes on the instruments. This would cut into the beautiful inlay on the LangeStile Deluxe, alter the historic appearance of both banjos, reduce collectible value and not save any money when the technician's fee is considered. If you try and enlarge the holes yourself there is the risk of collateral damage to the banjo.
To perform well vintage banjos need good working, accurate tuners. The antique originals, even if they are still operating, are not up to today's standards and should be replaced. Our custom tuners make the job easy and you will protect the appearance and value of the instrument.
Prices vary depending on the brand, $150 is for a set of 4 Gotohs which are excellent.
