Chris is proud to offer McPeake "Pancake" Banjo Tuners as an option on his banjos and git-jos. An "improved copy" of the highly-sought pre-War 2:1 Grover "pancake" tuning machines, these tuners have an improved ratio of 3.5:1 and are hand-machined to the highest quality standards of any banjo tuners ever made. Flawless in function, beauty and elegance, Chris predicts these machines will quickly take the banjo world by storm. Highly recommended.
