String rollers can become warn over many years of use. By exchanging them, you can give your set a new lease of life. The procedure is simple and we include instructions.
String rollers fitted with bearing bushes are very popular with luthiers and players. The bearing bush is attached to the string roller but spins freely. When the tuner is fitted to the instrument, these bushes remain stationary, hidden inside the headstock. When the string roller turns, the ‘centre shaft’ of the roller rotates inside the bush. The bushes have a slight dome which aligns the bush making sure the centre of force is directed to the centre of the bush. The bushing material has excellent light weight bearing qualities which also prevent any instrument sound changes from using plain rollers.
