Kluson Supreme 3+3 Tuning Keys - A Pleasant Surprise

Leonard McCoy

Recommended Posts

When browsing the web for replacement tuners for my J-180's Kluson-style Grovers, which didn't turn very well under tension (oiling didn't help), I stumbled upon these Kluson Supreme 3+3 tuning keys (single ring, double line), with their higher gear ratio of 18:1.  The exterior is made to vintage specs and drop right in if you have had Kluson-style tuners on your instrument before.

The keystone buttons have more of a yellow hue to them (instead of the Grovers' greenish shine), and swirling pearl pattern on the buttons is more present which I like. The keys turn very smoothly and you can tune up very precisely due to the higher-than-normal gear ratio. Very high quality, very happy.
