The tuners, particularly those of guitars and basses, are that part of the instrument used to tighten or loosen the strings, in order to keep it in tune.
The machine heads work similarly to a screw: to make us a little idea, turning each of its pieces we press or loosen the strings of the instrument.
That said, it is more than obvious the importance of having good machine heads. In Maderas Barber we have tuners for Classical Guitar, Acoustic, Electric, Bandurria, Lute and Bass, all of them with the highest quality. Choose yours from the wide variety we have of Schaller, Gotoh, Van Gent and Ping Well brands.

These reinforcements started to be used because guitar players applied tension increase on the strings. Luthiers realized that an interior reinforcement gave more resistance to the neck and made it stronger against humidity and temperature changes that have bend necks many times.
In Maderas Barber we offer you different reinforcement models for necks to get that stiffness and stability.
In most of the modern instruments frets are thin metal strips (nickel, Steel or alpaca) encrusted on the fingerboard. Frets are placed on the fingerboard and separate from one another. This distance is one of the variable that determine the tonality of the musical note produced.
When touching a string in a fret a musical note comes out. Frets are spaced according a maths rule. Each fret produce a note in a half tone higher than the previous fret. Frets divide the fingerboard in half tones. On the guitar, a fret corresponds to half tone. In Maderas Barber we offer you different fret models, with stripes or flat, with different crown dimensions for the stringed instruments.
