Was in St. Louis for the weekend to visit family. Stopped by one if there better string instrument shops to pick up a few items for some projects. I needed tuners for a tenor which I brought with me to make sure they would work. Discovered today what they sold me are Grover friction tuners for a ukulele not banjo. They seem to fit the peg head but will they hold metal strings in tune. I would just return them but there not open Sunday and I live 2 hours south of the city. Not worth the drive for $15 mistake.
Phone call?..........USPS Shipping?..........
If they are long enough to fit the peg head they will work. I have used Grover Champion tuners on banjos with metal strings and had no problems.
Sorry the picture on the right is an older tuner which I believe is a Grover champion off an older banjo I have. It would work & is what I hoped to get.
I'm not a fan of "patent" (mechanical friction) pegs for steel strings. They're not too bad for nylon/gut/Nylgut strings. Be sure you tighten the set screws just tight enough.
