Tuners  Apollo D Tuners Banjo Part/Accessory Reviews

Not much to add to other reviews... which in itself is really something. These are the real deal. They look great, they are solid like a rock, they get the job done and get it done right. If you are keeping your banjo for good, just screw the unit on the back of the peghead, set it up, and you're good to go. Ingenious tuning mechanism. Excellent feel on using the knobs. No problem for me getting used to tuning the 3rd string button the "other" way, in fact, I truly prefer it this way. I checked 'em all out, and these are the way to go. I just ordered a second set for my other banjo. These work. 'Nuff said.

I've been using the Apollo D Tuners now for about a month. I actually like them. I replaced the more traditional tuners with these to give them a go. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice they are. They are high quality and the convenience factor of set em and forget em' is great. I'm going to pick up another set for a second banjo.

Fitted a set of Apollo D tuners to my Gibbo this morning and i have to say, these are a 100% quality product. They return acurately every time, (checked against my petterson stroboflip)...they look good on the banjo and take nothing away from the peghead front. I opted for drilling the two little holes and not the fixing tape and i am glad i did. The tuners are held nice and tight with no fear of any movement. I shall not be selling this banjo in my lifetime so the holes dont bother me, but if they worry you, a little filler and stain would soon have them removed from trace. I took advice from the video advert and got the black tuner buttons, these help the pegs almost disappear from sight at the back, causing a natural blend as it were..........yep, these are the best , go get some..........Joe
