The original Kluson® tuning machines are based on a 12:1 gear ratio.  In the 1990's following the aquisition by WD Music Products, Inc. they were upgraded to a 15:1 gear ratio. Still there was a demand for an even higher gear ratio.  In response, we have taken the original stamped steel design and added an 18:1 gear ratio for more tuning stability than ever before.  This design bears the name “Kluson® Supreme” in double row format as the only visual difference from the original stamped steel machines.

For decades Kluson® based their tuning machines on a 12:1 gear ratio.  In the 1990s Kluson® upgraded to a 15:1 gear ratio but there was a demand for an even higher gear ratio.  In response, Kluson® has taken the original stamped steel design and added an 18:1 gear ratio for more tuning stability than ever before!  This design bears the name “Kluson® Supreme” in double row appearance and the only difference is visually. Don’t let the looks fool you with this “wolf in sheep’s clothing”.  This new model gives you the vintage stamped steel appearance without altering the basic design of the original tuning machines.  This means you can retrofit them with no modifications to your vintage instrument!  All mounting hardware is included.
