Schaller Classical Guitar Machines

About This Item

High quality 16:1 Hauser-style tuners for nylon-string classic guitars with slotted peghead and 1-3/8" (35mm) string roller spacing.

The roller sleeves are durable 3/8" (9.53mm) diameter white plastic. The knobs are handsome pearlescent plastic or genuine polished ebony.

Each set includes a pair of 3-left/3-right tuning machines with mounting screws.


Installation Tips

Peghole spacing: Plate-mounted tuners can't work efficiently if the pegholes are improperly aligned. Our Tuning Machine Drill Jig for Slotted Pegheads ensures the correct 1-3/8" string roller spacing for accurate tuning.

Mounting screws: Pilot holes required. Installing delicate screws into hard wood requires great care and accuracy. We highly recommend the #1712 Depth-stop Drill Bit (5/64" 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.

Smooth Operator

By

Verified Buyer


I have a 30 year old Spanish guitar that I bought in Spain while in college. One of the tuners bent so I changed them out. These are far better than what was on the guitar before. Very smooth. The holes for the screws did not line up but it was simple to install. They look great and function great.

Great Heads!

These are much superior to what I had on my second classical guitar. I bought cheap machine heads about 8 months ago and was very frustrated with the result--wouldn't stay in tune. The Schaller's are a huge improvement.

I am a 100% novice!! Although very intimidating at first- this was a pretty easy thing to do! *So good looking*

Great tuners

By

Verified Buyer


I bought these Schaller tuners to replace the factory installed tuners on a Cordoba CK Studio, which continually slipped out of tune. I no longer have that problem! The guitar stays in tune very well during performances and only occasional adjustments are needed, as normal.

Schaller classical tuners

Got the Schaller classical tuners in gold with ebony tuners. Great working tuners, and they really dressed up my guitar. Went from being disappointed to need tuners to happy I switched them out!
Ordering from Stewmac is easy, and I had new tuners at door a few days after ordering.

Great replacement guitar tuners

By

Verified Buyer


I replaced the tuners on a Jose Ramirez which had a broken tuning peg. The Schaller tuner dropped in without any alteration to the head of the instrument. Only one of the screw holes aligned up with the new keys and I had to drill new holes, no big deal. They work better than the original tuners.

Tuner is very nice, but screws sent were too short, I had to use old screws which didn't match the nice Michel finish.

Stewmac is great but these tuners are not

First set arrived and looked great but looks were certainly decieving. G tuner slipped terribly. Stewmac promptly replaced them. Schaller let me down in their quality control.

Perfect replacement tuner for my old Harmony 178. They look nice and stay in tune perfect. No adjustments were needed and they look fantastic. Definitely recommend Schaller!
