The banjo is played at occasional gigs and for jamming with friends and the original tuner suffered a knock and broke.
The new part is well made and attractive but it was slightly difficult to fit because the original seating required reaming. The string now holds its tune much better and I would recommend that anyone with an old friction tuner might put one of these in its place - wish I'd thought of it years ago!

I have a banjo pupil who has a banjo with a friction 5th string tuner. I recommended a change to a geared tuner to make tuning easier and more stable. The one supplied did the job.

As expected a big improvement on the gearless sort. Be prepared to work an enlarged hole and do not hammer it in - push and glue. I read up on the internet and got good tips. Maybe an instruction leaflet would be good.
