Perhaps they have changed...

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I have gone through two sets of these tuners on the same guitar. They work wonderfully in the beginning but at some point the very poor machining and design rears its very ugly head. There is so much slop between the worm drive and gear that it slips. It makes a horrible sound and the string will suddenly drop about 9 whole steps. Hopefully they have changed something as this happened in the last 5 years, twice. All I know is I will not buy them anymore. I will pony up and get some actual nice tuners like the Waverly machines sold here. It is sad because grover has been quality for me in the past but this one missed the mark big time. Utter junk in my opinion. Stew-mac has replaced this set for me already but I am giving up before I have to do this the third time. I have a mix of ones that work and ones that do not. Seems like a few times a year I have to go through and change some because they no longer work. I am getting really tired of that. The short of this, save your money, you get what you pay for. Buy something else.

These are as good or better than tuners costing much more. Great for rebuilds and upgrades.

Bushings

If, like me, you are converting from closed-back Gotoh/Grover/Schaller to these open-back styles, you need to order wider bushings ("tuner parts" section on Stew-Mac). I WISH Stew-Mac would put a caveat in the description of these tuners...not everyone measures before buying, or has luthier skills. I assumed it was a drop-in replacement, and now I'm stuck with another $20 in international shipping for a 10 dollar part. I made a temporary fit with teflon tape, but it is SO not cool on a $4,000 guitar.

BUT...these are smooth and pretty tuners on my customized HD 28. The 25 year old Schallers stripped a gear, and I was only too happy to upgrade to a retro open-back.

Photo attached...extra points if you can see my pyjamas in the shiny knobs!

The best guitar tuners

Don't waste your money on expensive tuners. These function much better for 1/4 of the price. Now if they could just start making more knob options!

Replaced the original nickel tuners on my Martin 000-15M. This was a no-brainer removal and replacement. Use caution when removing the original bushings. These are excellent tuners smooth and stable in operation. There's just something about a touch of gold. Excellent Stewmac service as usual.

Phenominal tuners

(Customer's Reviews)


Just finished my double cut Les Paul with a "slotted" headstock. They look beautiful and function perfectly. I've owned a lot of guitars, installed a lot of tuners in my 40+ years of playing, building and repairing all sorts of stringed instruments and these tuners hold their own with any other tuners.

They're Grovers so...

...of course they're good. Reasonably priced and they are a great improvement to my Gretsch 5120. Intonation is greatly improved and the guitar actually stays in tune now. The originals were terrible.

Small price BIG return

I have used Grover 18:1 Sta-Tites on several guitar projects and they have never let me down. A brilliant upgrade for an intermediate guitar, but they are also at home on high $$ instruments. These tuners not only look great with a vintage vibe they do their job.
