Very good middle class mechanics

Herr Krause, 07.02.2013
Ordered yesterday -> arrived today -> applied today -> guitar new strung -> tuned -> happy in the face! As shown in Fig.

The Klusons can be turned perfectly dosed and keep the mood excellent. Of course, the tuning stability depends on other factors, such as the care taken during the string mounting (90 ° bend at the mechanical hole, keeping the strings tight when winding up, as little winding on the mechanical axis) or how good your jamming hook is.

The installation lasts a few minutes and does not require any technical knowledge. The package contains all necessary parts and small parts.

Lock mechanisms have the advantage over standard mechanics that the string change is much faster and easier. The Klusons are a good compromise between the often factory-mounted inferior Chinadrehern and sauteuren hand-carved premium copies. Anyone who wants regular lock mechanics without having to touch the Sparbuch is well served here.

There are two good reasons for installing the Klusons:

1.) ... the Klusons are better than the standard Far East tuners on standard Far East guitars. They are by no means so easily distracted and simply feel much higher quality. The difference to cheap techniques is enormous, but the difference to the considerably more expensive marketers remains manageable. Expensive is not always better. Kluson offers excellent middle class at the Kracherpreis. Meanwhile, I am annoyed to have taken my first guitar conversion astronomically expensive Premiumdreher. The money I could have saved me, because the Klusons are not really worse.

2.) ... the smaller oval buttons on the head plate look much more creamy, which also applies to the chromic color. The value of the optical value justifies the investment.

The package contains everything you need for the exchange: mechanics, washers, nuts and small cross-head screws. If a small cross-screwdriver and a set of fork wrenches (you need a 10er) lie in the tool box at home, the path to the hardware store is dispensable.

...that's how it works:

Phase 1 - remove old mechanics.
- Remove the strings,
- Loosen the nuts on the front of the head plate,
- Loosen the screws on the back of the head plate,
- Remove the mechanics from the holes.
- Dispose of mechanics.

With almost all Fender replicas (Strat or Tele), the holes in the head plate are compatible with the Kluson mechanics. So you need neither adapter nor a drill. If the holes are expected to be too large, there are matching adapters at Thomann. If the holes are too small, do not worry. If you have two left hands, you can get uncomplicated help in every carpentry.
If the screw holes on the back are too big or squashed, you can press 4mm long toothpicks or match pieces with a drop of wood glue into the holes. If the glue is dry, you can easily screw the screws into the toothpicks. That holds.

Phase 2 - use the good Klusons:
- Insert the mechanics through the hole,
- Tighten the cross-head screw on the back of the headstock slightly,
- Attach the nut and the washer to the front,
- Tighten the cross -
- Repeat the procedure for the 5 other mechanics,
- admire the result,
- look forward to the quality of the Klusons,
- Pull the strings carefully,
- To tune a guitar,
- look forward to the tuning stability of the clusters.
- and be happy to have got a fair machine for little money. The approx. 40, - Euro, which you have saved in comparison to Markendrehern from German or American production, you can now spend on other beautiful things at Thomann! ;-)
