Ratio Tune-a-lele For Ukulele
|Ratio Guitar Machine Heads are being installed on more and more l major guitars, including Washburn, Martin, Framus, Riversong, andFretlight. |
This got us thinking, why are ukuleles such a pain to tune? Ukuleles are so much different from guitars. Ukes have a shorter scale, nylon strings and weigh a lot less. No wonder they are so hard to tune! Most ukes have heavy machine heads originally designed for guitar with a 14:1 or 16:1 gear ratio... !
The worlds lightest machine head, with a uke friendly 6:1 gear ratio! This super light, yet strong machine head makes ukes balanced, not headstock heavy, and with zero back drive and zero backlash!
The end result? Dare we say, an Ukulele that is fun to tune!
