Kluson 3 Per Side Supreme Series Tuning Machines
Kluson® 3 Per Side Supreme Series Tuning Machines
The Kluson® Supreme series tuning machines have an 18:1 gear ratio in the traditional stamped steel housing. This particular set is designed for instruments using a 3 + 3 tuning machine set with an upgraded gear ratio to original machines.
The housing bears the series name "SUPREME" in place of the original "DELUXE" moniker but this is the only hint to what lies hidden under the dust cover. Using all vintage specs these tuning machines will drop right into your instrument using vintage 3 per side tuning machines with no modifications. The smooth and reliable performance of the Supreme Series outshines the rest in its class. This is a complete set and comes with left and right side machines with hardware needed for installation.
these were a request from a customer I'm building a guitar for. personally I wouldn't use these tuners. I think they are an outdated design. however with that said, their quality was right up there for what they are, stamped metal tuners. These particular tuners were probably the very best you could get in about 1950, now a days I doubt they're even in the top ten. their workmanship and quality is still as good as they're going to get for their design, and method of manufacture. I would recommend them if your going after the "retro look and sound" but not if your wanting high grade modern tuners. there's a market for everything I suppose.
