I was Pleased with quality and operation of the Dulcimer tuning machines. Anchor Pins are attractive and work well, Drill bit created a tight fit
I haven't put my machine heads on yet, but did check them over good and they really are made with precision !
I converted my friction tuning keys to the open gear keys. They worked great & they look good.
I’ve had to replace open gear machine heads on two dulcimers and both times chose those offered by Folkcraft. I also searched for some on eBay and Amazon, but those from Folkcraft are reasonably priced, well-built, and look good.
