Schaller Bass Machines, Set of 4-In-Line

About This Item

"Elephant ear" bass tuners with smooth 20:1 gear ratio and slotted string posts. 11/16"-diameter pegholes required.

These machines can be disassembled to reverse the worm gear shafts for left-hand pegheads when required. Screws and press-fit bushings included.

Chrome.

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.

Installing on a Fender Squire Bass (Indonesia)

I was lost for options on what to do with the insanely CHEAP tuners on my CY Squire bass,and this bass was unplayable.I lucked out with the GREAT illustrations of the Schallers which gave me hope I could fix this bass.
Here's the story:
As indicated in the text,you will need to open up the factory headstock holes to 11/16"-you will not find this drill available for use in a 3/8" drill.You must have a heavy duty drill chuck of 3/4" or 1" range.Besides,how accurate is your job going to be if you use a hand drill?
This is hard maple,drill slowly or regret it.Then,as I found, the headstock is NOT big enough to accommodate 4 Schallers in line.The top tuner base (G) will HAVE to be reshaped to fit on the headstock.Since they are made of alloy brass,this will be fairly easy if you have a bit of patience and a professional grinding wheel with fine grit composition.

Follow the advice given on this site.Pre-drill all mounting holes with 3/32" drill and sink the bit into the chuck (do not free-style or you MAY poke the drill out the front.)

Overall,this was a challenging endeavour,but well worth it.Of course,no guitar shop would even attempt this hack.

We are playing a fine instrument now.Much more tuning stability,finer intonation and style.

Thank you Schaller & Stew-Mac!

I have an eighties Fender Jazz Bass and I wanted to replace the tuners because the black finish was coming off and they were getting loose and sloppy.. I couldn't find a set of tuners that had the right dimensions until I found these on the StewMac website. I ordered them, they shipped quickly and when I got them I was pleased with the top quality chroming and how well they worked. This is a real quality piece.

I bought a Fender Precision A/E bass that had 2 broken tuners and these Schallers fitted perfectly and now my bass looks and plays as new. Very happy StewMac customer.

Schaller Bass machine tuners

Excellent tuners. Used them to upgrade my Squier Jazz Bass. They didn't fit perfectly, but I made it work by using the original Squier bushings. They where a bit too big and I had to slant them a wee bit, the top tuner is still a tiny bit outside the head. But thats not Schallers fault. The tuners have a great finish, and is really smooth with no noticeable play. Great tuners!!

The Schaller Bass Machine Tuners were used to upgrade a bass guitar project. They were tight with minimal back lash in the gears. The bushings fit tight, the tuning was excellent, They have a great feel when you are tuning. A great upgrade for anyone with a china made bass with worn, or loose tuners of this model. They are serious high end tuners. Worth the money,will use again.
