    I'd take that tuner OFF whenever I wasn't playing the mandolin.
    I've seen too many pegheads permanently "stained" with a spot where the tuner was clipped to it. Reminds of the mark of Cain...

    I have had two crossrock cases. They are great!

    Jonathan,

    Just consider the metal rings anti-theft deterrents, lol. After the Strad was stolen from the lady in London at a cafe while she was distracted by her phone I actually tied some jingle bells to a couple of my cases just so I’d hear if someone tried to gank them . Ironically enough, those mandos wouldn’t have been worth the effort to steal and pawn

    Very good warning! I actually have a soft piece of leather between the tuner and the headstock to prevent any marking. I hope that is sufficient!
