Gotoh Compact Bass Tuner, 2L+2R Set

About This Item

Enclosed-gear tuners for smaller pegheads, with 7/16"-diameter string posts and threaded hex bushings. 9/16"-diameter pegholes required.

Precision 20:1 gear ratio with sealed lubrication, cast housings and metal knobs. Set of 4, for 2-left/2-right pegheads. Mounting screws included.

Also sold individually for 5 or 6-string basses, or for asymmetric pegheads.

Pilot holes required: Installing delicate screws such as these into hard maple requires great care and accuracy. We highly recommend using a 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.

Exactly what I wanted.

By

Verified Buyer


The tuners themselves are a nice step up from the stock tuners on my Washburn 4 string. Very solid design and hold tune quite well. They were exactly what I was looking for.

The real hero of this story is Stew Mac themselves. When I placed the initial order, the site errored out and cancelled the order, but the Paypal charge still went through. When I called to make sure everything was right, customer service said the order was fine and they'd have it shipped that day. About an hour later, they returned the call and said, no the order had apparently been cancelled on their end as well.
They took the time to help me place the order over the phone, cancelled the initial Paypal transaction so the funds would release, and threw in a couple perks to compensate me for the hassle. They really stepped up to make me happy and by doing so ensured my continued business with them.

Thank you, Stew Mac.

Gotoh Bass Tuner

Installed on my aging Washburn. I must say having the higher gear ratio makes a huge difference. These are so smooth.

Easy fix

Bought a Rouge violin bass and did not like the tuners. Would not hold the tension and stay in tune. These dropped right in without a problem and cured the problem. The price was also right.

Gotoh bass tuning machines

They're great. I have always liked the simplicity and strength of the gotoh machines, and the bass machine were no different. I was very pleased.

Excellent quality tuners

Verified Buyer


I bought these tuners to replace the stock ones on my Gretsch G2202 junior jet bass. They were a perfect fit without any modifications and much better quality.

My experience with Stewart-MacDonald was excellent! I order my Gotoh bass tuning keys and it arrived in great condition exactly when they said it would.

Gotoh GB707 not GB7

By

Verified Buyer


These are being used to replace the Gotoh cheap knock off GB7 look alike machine heads on my made in PRC (Peoples Republic of China) Dean 5 string acoustic bass. The posts are of greater diameter but fit the holes drilled in the head stock a lot tighter. I have found that they have stabilized the neck a lot better now that i have worked with them for awhile. The mounting threads on the old ones were very poor and the machine heads would shift. Even though I replaced 1 with a Gotoh GB7 from the music store to stabilize the E string i will be ordering another 1 for that one soon as these look great and are generally meatier looking.

Great replacements for Epiphone Basses

By

Verified Buyer


I've used these as upgrade replacements on the following Epiphone basses: El Capitan, Accubass and the Explorer. They fit like a glove with no drilling or reaming needed.

Perfect match for Fender acoustic bass

By

Verified Buyer


I bought these to match the muted appearance that black nylon wrapped strings give my acoustic bass, and they look great.
The only reason it wasn't 5 stars is because the supplied black screws were smaller than the original screws and they provided exactly one per tuner, so no mistakes. The fit problem was easily solved by toothpicks.

Prefect Replacement

These tuners fit my Yamaha bass perfectly, no mods necessary. They are tight and tune efficiently. No slack when turning the machines, unlike the ones that came on the bass!
