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.

Great replacement guitar tuners

By
(Customer's Reviews)


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.

Schiller machine

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 fit

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!

Significant improvement!

These tuners were a perfect fit (no drilling needed) as replacements for the stock tuners on my Manuel Rodriguez Model D Rio classical guitar, and are a definite improvement. They look good, too.

Great tuners

By
(Customer's Reviews)


These are, in my opinion, great tuners. Their tuning stability seem to be better than typical industry standard equivalents. The Schallers are truly sexy, but the gold colour is a bit too flashy for my taste. At this price, I would not buy anything else. Also, StewMac excels at S&H. Delivered to Norway in 7 days.

Solid, smooth, great-looking machines.

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I built an electric upright guitarr=n (EUG) that breaks down and fits in my suitcase for air travel and practice during vacations. I wanted classical guitar tuning machines because they are compact and my EUG has six strings. These Schaller tuning machines work fine on my instrument even though my largest string is 0.135 inches in gauge. Solid construction (no wobble) as well as smooth, firm operation, and the 16:1 ratio is a major improvement over the cheap tuners I used on the prototype. They look great, too.

Good value

For the price, there is probably not many better sets available.

Le meccaniche Schaller per chitarra classica non solo sono eleganti e ben realizzate, ma precise nell'accordatura e stabili... Poi i pomellini in ebano sono fantastici...
