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.

I bought these for my Alverez acoustic bass guitar since one of its tuning machine heads broke/failed. I was VERY PLEASED with these Gotohs, and they fit PERFECTLY! I did not have to enlarge the main holes in the head, or re-do the little screw holes. They popped right in and work great! I was also pleased with StewMac, their Website, spec charts, ease of ordering, and promptness to process my order and ship!

Perfect fit

After making the HUGE mistake of buying $15 tuners and seeing the poor quality and dealing with rattling and nuts that wouldn't tighten all the way to the headstock I had to but the bullet and upgrade. These Gotoh tuners are beasts. The no-name tuners would slip and I would avoid detuning. My Peavey is my favorite bass to play once again!

Nice tuning pegs!

I purchased a Hartke bass for my son and discovered a tuning peg was broken. I immediately ordered the 2x2 pegs from StewMac and had them on in less than 10 minutes. They work great and the bass sounds terrific! Thanks much!

Exactly what I wanted.

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.

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.

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.

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.
