excellent tuners!!!

Great tuners to use with Brazilian 10 strings guitar... But for this use, we need to cut on the screw hole to fit 2,5cm between pins..

Slot head machines

I use the Grover 18:1 Sta-Tite machines on almost all the slot heads that I built. They are a great value and work as well as tuners costing 4 times as much and they look almost identical to the more expensive brands. A great product.

Excellent tunders

I purchased these tuners to replace Taylor 12-fret tuners. They were cosmetically nicer and have a higher gear ratio making the tuning process that much finer.

A good choice

These good quality but low-cost tuners worked out very well for me. They were going into an Aria MM10 gypsy guitar which had terrible tuners. These Grovers were an excellent upgrade. I had to grind off the ends of the D and G tuners (almost always necessary with the SelMac design, figure at least 1/16") but this was easily done with a b*stard file. I also had to ream out the peg holes a little. The screw holes conflicted a little bit with the existing holes, but this was easy to address by plugging the holes in question and redrilling.

The 18:1 gear ratio delivers very precise tuning, and it has made this problematic instrument very usable -- it's now my main acoustic stage guitar. I will get another couple of sets of these tuners for other instruments that could use better tuning.

Stay right w/Sta-Tite

I had to replace some generic 3-on-a-plate slot-head tuners on a harp guitar. Then I found that another plate tuner set wouldn't fit b/c of the harp head.
I went to these next--as they had come recommended by a few other associates. They look even better than my original choice and the smooth turning 18:1 gears are great!

Fantastic value!!!

If there's a better slothead tuner on the market for less than 2-3 times the price I haven't found it. I've installed a half dozen or so sets in "normal" applications and have always been well satisfied, but I've also drilled out the shafts and used these on various bass projects strung with the large (.155 low E) "weedwackes" now used on so many uprights with no problems at all. In fact, after noticing people on Hofner blogs recommending the solid peghead version as a replacement for the inferior tuners now supplied with the various import Hofner "Beatle" and Club basses, I gave them a try on a friend's Hofner Icon and found them not only a huge improvement, but also a direct drop-in replacement.

Grover Sta-Tite Slotted Peghead Ukulele

The Grover Sta-Tite Slotted Peghead works great for the Tenor Ukulele. All you need to do is file the ends shorter so they will not hit together. The price is reasonable and they look sharp!

Thoroughly Recommended

Bought to replace the stock Kluson style tuners on my Tanglewood TRP-73 Rosewood Reserve Parlour acoustic. Perfect fit straight out of the box, no bushings or modification needed.

These tuners have a really smooth, high-quality feel to them and hold their tune perfectly, not to mention looking very pleasing too. Thoroughly recommended.
