The Kaplan Ball End Adapter allows any violin or viola string with a ball end to be used with standard single hook-type fine tuners.

The adapter enables users of single hook English or 'Hill' style fine tuners to use the more robust ball end E strings. The special design of the adapter preserves the alignment of the string into the tuner. It is small and inconspicuous, and its gold-colored finish matches all styles of instrument fittings.

Produces a neat and inconspicuous fine tune set up. Eliminates the risk of damage to the instrument front by the tuner.


  • Gold finish steel
  • Quick and easy to fit.
  • Easily removable.
  • Pack of five.
