Genuine Kluson Supreme A Type Nickel Mandolin tuners, 18:1 Ratio, Black Buttons Part# KMTAN18-BK
Kluson has just released the newest addition to the Supreme series tuning machines. Based on the original Kluson Deluxe stamped steel tuners, the Kluson Supreme Series tuners are the next generation in stamped steel tuner design for your mandolin. Using original Kluson 4 per plate mandolin tuner mounting specs, the new Supreme mandolin tuners 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. Options include simulated bone, black and simulated white pearl buttons in nickel or gold plating for both A and F style mandolins. Includes all mounting hardware.
