This is a typical set shown below. Ebony Buttons with Black Rollers and A-style Pip setting. Call me with any questions about what I might have in stock.
The F – Series Tuning Machines are simply a style name applied by Nicolò to these tuning machines
They are identical in construct to Alessi Hauser Tuning Machines
The differences lie in the detail of engraving, though still high, and
The collars around the shafts, and the difference in end pins of the shafts.
Please note that Nicoló Alessi can custom build any configuration for you including MOP (Mother of Pearl) – Kidney Buttons – Snakewood Buttons

- All tuners are priced with Free USPS Priority or 1st Class Shipping to the 50 US States.
- I send a tracking number for all shipments.
- Deliveries elsewhere will incur normal USPS shipping charges – write to me if you have any questions
- Mother of Pearl (MOP) Buttons and Dots are an additional $120.00
- as are those with special buttons, i.e. Kidney Shaped Buttons
- Any tuner listed with Ivory is using a Synthetic Ivory (of course)!
- All tuners are built with Brass Plates (except Silver Plates) – Bronze Gears with Stainless Steel Worms
- Brass Bushing Holes and a Lubrication Hole in each Gear
- Ergal Shafts are Alessi’s new standard creating less weight – e.g. Hauser 1 was 175 grams…it is now 130 grams
- I always order Black Rollers with Ebony Buttons, White Rollers with Ivory (Ivoroid) buttons, essentially, white on white, black on black.
- I do not have mixed sets, so please don’t ask. You must order them Custom, through me, with a 2-6 month turnaround expected.
Nicolo has not provided any schematics for the machines. I have measured them myself for your convenience.
|Roller measurement||35mm on center – roller to roller|
|Plate Height||12mm at its highest point|
|Screw Holes||Measured from tip of headstock to nut – 5mm – 45mm – 80mm -105mm|
Thus a 5mm inset from tip of machine to other tip
