Schertler Guitar Tuning Keys for 3+3 Solid Pegheads - Metal Knobs

About This Item

Swiss design and distinctive look!
High quality open-gear tuners for 3-left/3-right solid pegheads.

Schertler machines are precisely engineered with 18:1 gear ratio, nylon worm post bearings in a compact cast aluminum base, and adjustable knob tension. The result is impressively smooth and accurate operation. Metal knobs fitted with brass internal shaft bushings for durability, and eye-catching unplated brass crown gears.

Also available with ebony knobs for slotted peghead steel string and classical guitars.

  • 18:1 gear ratio
  • 3-left/3-right with mounting screws
  • Removable metal knobs
  • 10mm (13/32") diameter pegholes required
  • Knurled press-fit peghead bushings
  • Available in bright chrome or gold

Installation Tips

Bushings: We recommend the #2065 Bushing Reamer (0.393" diameter) to cut a clean, accurate counterbore for a professional job. Fit the press-fit tuner bushings correctly so your tuners will work smoothly.

Mounting screws: Pilot holes required. Installing delicate screws into hard wood requires great care and accuracy. We highly recommend the #1711 Depth-stop Drill Bit (No.50 bit) for the pilot hole before installing these screws. Lubricate the screw threads with cutting lubricant (also wax or a bar of soap) to reduce friction and help them thread properly.

Terrible packing

I just received these and was shocked to find them all bunched up and rattling around in a little brown box with one small piece of foam on the bottom. Definitely not what I expected from a $120 set of tuners. I like my expensive new hardware arriving looking new.

I love this tuner BUT

I won't give it five stars because the chamfer on the hole in the string post is so large that there is virtually no post exposed over the headpiece surface--it's all chamfer. So the tightened high E string comes off the sharp edge of the chamfer, rather than off the smooth post --and too often--kinks and breaks. The chamfer diameter should be reduced so the string can coil down past it and come off the post without kinking.

Replaced the plastic body Schaller machines on a Gurian JM with the metal knob Schertler keys. The shafts were identical diameter so it was not necessary to replace bushing but the mounting screws had a slightly different spacing. I formed small mahogany dowels to fill the original screw holes and glued them in. Marked and drilled new holes for mounting and everything went pretty slick.

These tuners are very smooth which minimal backlash. They appear to be very well made and expect they will outlive me.

I have used these on a uke and I like them and I will also be using them on future guitar builds.
I like everything about these tuners.

I replaced a set of Gotoh open tuners with the Schertler keys- they function flawlessly. Beautiful design.

Amazing Machines with a Classic Look!

I've switched to Schertlers Machines as my standard over a year ago. They are a better machine than any others save for Waverly.
Modern look, great precision, and amazing tuning stability.
Hands down, the best bang for the buck in a tuning machine on the marketplace today.
This new style has really great chrome plating for a more traditional look than the other Schertler machines.
All Kopp String Instruments guitars are fitted with the Schertler machines as standard for a reason, and I am very pleased with the addition of a chrome option.
If you are thinking about the machines for your guitar, Do It!
You will not be let down!
