Tuners - Basic Quesion

Recommended Posts

16:1 means that for every turn of the tuning peg (the bit that holds the string) the twiddly (button) bit has to turn 16 complte turns

18:1 means that it has to be turned 18 times.

The 18:1 ration means that you can tune more accurately, but I'm thinking that the diameter of the tuning peg would also help with more accurate tuning (but thats irrelivant to your question)

Anyway this is just my take on it, hopefully someone will confirm it for you (or blow me out of the water with the right answer)
