General Service

I would just like to say that your service has always been excellent, second to none. The parts i have recently ordered are for a restoration job on a 1931 Recording King.

Too nice

Decided to change tuners on my project guitar- you know the one kept in the shop for experiments, it would'nt stay in tune. Replacing the cheap import tuners with these made the darn thing playable. Will buy them again that's for sure. Now maybe I'll actually try that kit guitar I have had my eye on. Thanks Grover.

The best you can get

I put a set of these on my Martn HD-28V to replace the standard Martin 14:1 tuners. No mod needed. The brass gear and the 18:1 upgrade on these Grovers give precise tuning and hold the tuning great.
They are 40 bucks...but on a 3000 guitar, it's well worth it.

Entry level Upgrade

I always thought the chrome-plated closed tuners on my '95 Martin D-1 did not look right, so when one of them started to fail, I used it as an excuse to upgrade with some vintage style open back tuners. I was going to go with Waverlys, but I saw a couple of reviews for the Sta-tites, and at a third the price I said "Why not".

I also ordered the wrong size conversion bushings, but was able to exchange them for the 10.5mm I needed with zero hassle. So: I got great customer service from StewMac, and my entry level guitar looks and sounds way classier. (18:1 really makes a difference.)

Great Tuner / Great Value

Having owned many tuners through the years, I believe that Sta-Tites are as good a functioning tuner for the price that you can get, for a vintage Style tuner! I bought 6 sets, far out-weighing the cost of Waverly's by comparison. Great looking, accurate tuners w/o any backlash associated w/ many other tuners. Clear winners at a resonable cost.

Great Tuners!

These tuners are awesome! They are absolutely beautiful. They really tied my head stock together. They don't slip, and seem to keep their tune well. I suggest these tuners!

Very Nice

Ordered these to replace the enclosed Grover look alike tuners on an old acoustic. The gears on these are machined vs stamped on the copies. The string posts in these tuners are thicker and much more precise. Stew Mac service and shipping time is second to none.

Grover 18:1 Sta-Tites

I bought these to replace wilkinson 'snot' tuners on 335 style guitar. They've made a massive difference with tuning stability but also the strings feel different. I always felt as though the strings 'sag' when playing bends, but they feel so much more 'definite' now when playing single notes, bends and chords.

The guitar now has a more expensive playability and I do believe the tone is clearer too. I was so surprised at the range of improvements new tuners could add. I must say that open backed tuners look great on a 3 per side headstock and these fitted the kluson style footprint perfectly.

Best tuners for a quality acoustic guitar I've found.

I debated a set of Waverlys to replace the stock no-name enclosed tuners on my D-16 prototype, but after reading about Grover's improvements over their old version (14:1 - don't mistake the two, the 14:1's gave Grover a bit of a bad rep for a while!) I thought I'd try them. I was simply stunned. The guitar has very light, unusual bracing and the weight reduction at the peghead alone made a huge difference in bass focus and overall complexity - but they are the smoothest, most precise tuners of ANY type I've tried (including Waverlys). For under $50 (including conversion bushings) there's not a single thing I believe can be done to improve a good guitar's tone and stability so significantly.
