Report What is the Best Fine Tuner? in The Pegbox Posted 2 hours ago 12 hours ago, Spelman said: Geared pegs are nice but, in my experience, not as accurate as (good) fine tuners. I like what @Dave Slight recommends, it sounds like the type in the Bois d'Harmonie tuners which I quite like. If you don't have any special lubricants, rub a pencil lead on the threads and it should work. That's my findings too. The gear reduction isn't a high enough ratio for steel strings, which makes fine tuning similar to trying to balance on the head of a pin.
