First produced in 1952, the unique sound of the banjo D-tuners has captured the fancy of banjo lovers across the world. Often called Cheaters, a multitude of variations on the original design have been tried. The strongest objection to most of them is that installation requires drilling the peghead with two additional holes. The models which do not require drilling the peghead can be cumbersome and non-intuitive in their operation.

The revolutionary design of the Famous Old Time Music Company BANJO CHEAT-A-KEYS surmounts each and every one of these objections plus providing flawless performance no matter the tempo of the tune.
