Fine tuner for use with loop end strings. Widely used by professional musicians to maintain correct string tension. Ball end strings can also be used by using the optional ball end adapter.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TO ENSURE THIS PRODUCT MEETS YOUR NEEDS: Fine tuner suitable for 'loop' end E strings or ball end with adapter. To obtain maximum adjustment range the tailpiece slot may need lengthening. Some modern wooden tailpieces will need thinning from underneath to obtain the maximum range of adjustment. We strongly recommend the use of a plastic insert to avoid the hook cutting the string loop. We cannot accept liability for strings cut by the hook.

Good tuner but needs the appropriate tail piece.
4 out of 5 found the following review helpful

Pros: Very well made tuner with a good screw and action.

Cons: Make sure that your particular tail piece will fit this type of tuner as they are small and will need a specific cut to work.

Needs filing to smooth the inside edges.
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Integrates beautifully in the tailpiece. The tuner's screw is softer in its movement that cheaper versions I have had.

Cons: Rough edges... I understand why they sell the plastic things, but it shouldn't be necessary to get extras to work. When I got it I tried the inner edges sharpness with a shoe string... It destroyed it, Flayed it in minutes. I filed the roughnesses with files and sandpaper and it got smooth and harmless to the strings, as it should be sold in the first place. Now it's perfect, but not as it comes from factory.

Inserts are useless

Pros: The finer tuner itself was just what I needed on a high-arched violin, to keep the metal parts well away from the front of the violin itself.

Cons: The inserts were completely useless. I found them absolutely impossible to fit, even with tweezers and a magnifying glass.

Correct string length matters!

Pros: Fits on my viola just fine, opened up my A string which originally sounded steely and squeaky with almost every A string available.

Cons: None!

does not fit on conventional tailpiece
2 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: liked idea of using loop end E string with no metal ball and liked mechanism which does not project down onto the table of the violin and cause damage.

Cons: Too small and complicated and fiddly.Did not fit onto the tailpiece. Useless.
