Hello Shar, My violin came with one fine tuner when I purchased it but I wanted to have fine tuners on all of my strings. This past July I purchesed 3 of these string adjusters. I didn`t have a problem installing the adjusters, but I can not get the strings through the holes at the bottom of the slot. Finally, I tried to force the "A" string through, I could only get the wound part of the string half way through when it got stuck. I have the Corelli Alliance Vivace violin strings is it possible they are too fat? Thank you very much for your time.

SHAR Answer:

2-prong fine tuners tend to fit steel strings better than synthetics (which are usually thicker). Advanced instruments only have one fine tuner because the synthetic and gut strings recommended for them have the elasticity required for tuning with the pegs, and installing the string directly to the tailpiece allows better sound and response. To install synthetic core strings in these fine tuners, you will have to carefully bend the prongs apart a bit with a small screwdriver or knife. While adding fine tuners to a wooden tailpiece is easy and convenient, when four fine-tuners are desired it is better to have a Wittner-style tailpiece installed by luthier. Though, these fine tuners will work fine once they've widened the prongs just a little bit. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact us directly at 1-800-248-7427.
