Make Your Uke Sing

No matter what type of stringed instrument you have, the nut is one of the most important parts of the overall performance, playability and tone of your instrument. It is amazing the effect of upgrading this small part will have on the health of your instrument. When nuts are worn out or poorly constructed, problems such as string buzz, fretting out and tuning performance are just a matter of time.Graph Tech precision molds and engineers its nuts to create the most consistent tone, string balance as well as precise string spacing to create the perfect piece for your instrument.

Up until now, if you wanted to improve the tone and tuning stability of your uke, you’d need to just buy a whole new instrument. Now, Graph Tech’s nuts, saddles, and tuners allow the DIY-er to upgrade at a fraction of the cost.

Ukuleles are Hard to Tune.

Let’s face it. Ukuleles are very different from guitars. They have a very short scale, nylon strings, and very light... But, most are equipped with guitar machine heads! The gear ratio is too high, and they weigh a lot. This makes for a difficult to tune, headstock heavy ukulele.

What did we do?

We designed a machine head from the ground up! Tune-a-lele’s are a breakthrough in uke tuning and playing. Tune-a-lele tuners are an easy upgrade and deliver a natural, intuitive feel when tuning - accurate, and stable. With a concentric 6:1 gear design, Zero Backlash and Zero Back-drive,tuning has never been easier!

GREAT TUNING AND BALANCE

A set of Tune-a-lele’s are a featherlight 20 grams a set, compared to 120+ grams for guitar machine heads. You’ll feel an immediate improvement in balance and feel.

6:1 GEAR RATIO

Specially chosen to give a balanced tuning response across the 4 strings of the ukulele, the 6:1 gear ratio allows the player to achieve approximately 1 turn to 1 tone of pitch change when making adjustments about the standard tunings of the uke.

"Thanks so much for the String Saver Saddles. I have them on my stage guitars and this past summer while touring with The Guess Who, I never broke one string! I like to leave my strings on indefinitely, I happen to like "dead" strings, as they give me more sustain and help me get 'my sound' so Graph Tech is in my loop forever. Thanks for the great product; it's one that's long overdue for the axemen of the world."
