Hipshot Ultralite Individual Bass Tuner with Schaller-style Knob

About This Item

Lightweight compact tuner for smaller bass headstocks with 20:1 gear ratio. Convertible for installation on either side of the peghead.

Mounting screw, washer, and hex bushing included; 9/16"-diameter peghole required. Sold individually.

These tuners weigh 1.8 oz. each, compared to approx 2.3 oz. for a sealed Gotoh tuner and 3.5 oz. for a Schaller-style tuner.

Pilot holes required: Installing delicate screws such as these into hard maple requires great care and accuracy. We highly recommend using a 3/32" 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.

Excellent tuners

Replaced very good Gotoh tuners on a Fender Am Deluxe 5 string with Hipshot direct replacements Gotoh key style. Saved some weight for better balance, installed easily with no modification. Work very well and have a slightly thicker shaft for more stable string windings. These really are state of the art and worth the extra money. The design proves there is no need for all the weight of the old Fender style tuners in providing a strong stable tuning key.

What more can a person say since these are most likely the top of the line bass tuners on the market other than StewMac's price can't be beat and somehow they get them to me faster than if I picked up a set local (kidding of course).
