Schertler individual Classical tuners

By Colin V M Wright from Perth, Western Australia
(Customer's Reviews) Sunday, February 23, 2014


Beautifully made and well engineered tuners. Expensive but worth it; particularly suitable for special head configurations such as 7 to 12 string set ups. Colin Wright, Perth WA

Best for Cavaquinhos (Brazilian Uke)

I use these tuners for my cavaquinho and Brazilian Banjos that I build. They are very precise.

Classy, precise tuning

I use these tuners for my 10-string classical guitars that I build. They are elegant, classy and precise. I also use them on my high-end 6-string classicals. Nothing better on the market for the price.

This is a nice tuning machine

I think this is the best of all individual machines. Rogers has individual type too, but they are too expensive for normal guitar. So to use Schertler is best choice.

i have used these tuners on two guitars now and they are very smooth and consistent.

Nice Tuners but....

By J. Travis Snyder Classical Guitars from Greenville, NC

Aesthetically beautiful machines! I would use them on my instruments if the machining tolerances were tighter. These are good tuners, but they have too much play for $120. With a little rework, Schertler could have something here!

sexy tuners

The Schertler Classical Tuners are without question the smoothest turning, most precision machined tuners I've seen. The extra ounce in weight over my original tuners has helped the guitar's tone, too.

Great new gears

Just put a set of the gold Schertler Classical guitar tuning machines on a '63 Goya G30. The Goya was originally supplied with well designed and made single machines that still work fine. But I thought I'd try these newly designed Schertler machines...and I am so glad I did.


The mounting screw holes are close,but not close enough and new holes need to be made. But these tuners are beautifully built, very smooth, very easy to turn with absolutely no binding because of the excellent design of the tuners and because the individual tuner design does not force a connection between tuners, as on the three on a plate design.



Really worth trying...and I've tried a lot of really good tuning machines.
I highly recommend these Schertler machines.
