Fine Tuners by Wittner

Various - Fine Tuners - Tuners - Metronomes - Mutes - Shoulder Rests

These string adjusters are made in Germany by Wittner.

Fine tuners are usually used on the thinnest string of an instrument, though may be used on all four strings. Their purpose is to perform small adjustments in tuning (with more precision than the pegs can normally tune). If adjusters are desired on all 4 strings, we recommend using a tailpiece with built in tuners, as they are lighter, and sound better (4 metal adjusters can be like a mute due to their weight).
Tailpieces with fine tuners built in can be found on this page.

Steel and steel core strings tend to be more difficult to tune than gut or synthetic core strings, and are thus more suited to fine tuners.
