Tuner Loose?

BMcNeal — Feb 05, 2015 05:45AM HST

New to Ukulele.

I recently started with a Soprano Lanikai and just picked up the Kala Pocket Ukulele. The geared tuners on the pocket Uke seem to be a lot looser than the Soprano. Any slight bump or brush against the tuners allows them to untune.

Can these be tightened? There is a screw in the center of the tuner? Would I just lightly tighten these? I'm not sure and I don't want to mess up my lovely instrument.

You can tighten the screw on the gears without causing damage. Sometimes if the buttons are held in with screws those can be tightened as well if it feels like they are loose. As long as you aren't cranking down hard on the screws and only tighten until it feels snug, you wont cause any damage.
