Solid replacements!!!

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I looked around for a replacement tuner for my Schecter Omen Extreme 4 bass. The E string tuner (actually all the tuners) are Indonesian Gotoh knock offs with the skinny center post that become loose over time. My E string tuner's gear broke/stripped out internally. So I searched around and found these. I ordered one as soon as I could and what a difference! First off they are a perfect fit. Second the center post is much beefier than the original with NO slop to be found and once installed hold tune with NO slippage. I am now slowly purchasing and replacing the other 3 tuners on my bass with these much higher quality tuners. Stewmac had them to me in 2 days once the order was placed! I am HIGHLY satisfied!

GB707 Machine heads

By

These are the Gotoh GB707 machine heads and have a straight post as opposed to the more common type Gotoh GB7 that have the hourglass shaped post. IMHO these are much better replacements for them. Be sure to check the specs to be sure they will fit your holes or you may need to modify. I ordered the 4 pack and was very impressed with the quality of these and completed the replacement of all of the cheap ones on my 5 string Dean Bass with one of these. Now they are rock solid and stay where they are. Something the cheaper machine heads with poor threads are unable to do consistently.

my D string tuner had broke on my ESP bass. I had contacted ESP directly to see about a replacement part and they referred me to Stewart-MacDonald .. Extremely pleased with my experience and product.

Solid Replacement-Upgrade

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I needed new tuners for a beautiful, neck-through-body Schecter bass that I bought used about 12 years ago. Naturally, the big box guitar stores acted like this wasn't really their thing. But Stewmac had them along with very useful dimensional drawings so I was able to ensure fit before I ordered.
The machines installed easily and are noticeably stout. Being brand new, of course they hold the tune. But they feel good too and look great.

Excellent Replacement Tuning Keys for Warwick Bass

By
(Customer's Reviews)


About a week ago, the D-string tuning key on my German Warwick bass blew out with said D-string at full tension. After inspecting the gear, it became clear the threading inside of the tuning post had stripped. Thus, the set screw connecting the gear to the tuning post would not hold together. Apparently, many Warwick owners experienced similar problems, and they all recommend Gotoh tuners. I ordered a replacement D- and A-string tuning key, and am quite impressed. The construction is top-notch, replacing the keys couldn't be easier, and the sound and feel of the strings have greatly improved. I will be replacing the rest of my tuning keys with Gotohs. Even if your tuning keys are in good shape, I would still consider replacing them with Gotohs. They will make your instrument sound better. Lastly, the prices on Stewart-MacDonald are the cheapest I could find, and they shipped out quickly. Highly recommended.

Gotoh tuners

I replaced a broken machine head on my Warwick FNA Jazzman. After reading that other Warwick bass owners had used the Gotoh tuners for replacements, I decided to order just the single to replace. The Gotoh tuners seem sturdier (IMO) & cost less than the Warwick replacement. I think I'll probably replace the other 3. Thanks, Stew-Mac for option of being able to order single tuner.

I ordered one to test-will order complete set

I have a Dean Acoustic bass. Tuners keep breaking, sometimes while hanging up!. Dean sends replacements but they also break. I order one of these tuners as a test. The install was an exact match. The quality is miles better. I will now replace the rest of the tuner. Be sure to measure well. The feral ring or screw was just a little tight, but fit perfectly with a little push.
