Schaller, I use nothing else

By Matthews Guitars from Satellite Beach, Florida

Forget the boutique brands. Forget the budget brands. The best tuners are Schallers, period. I use nothing else on any of my guitars. I've tried every major brand and Schaller is the only answer to the question "What is the best tuning machine?". Don't waste your time on anything else.

Very good tuners

By Michal Jerabek from Brussels, Belgium

I have these tuners for almost two years now. I have chosen them as replacement tuners for Godin/Seagull C6 guitar - they fit perfectly, no drilling, just remove the original tuners and "plug" these Schallers.

I am very much satisfied with them. They are as smooth as the legendary Gotoh 510 (I have them on another guitar, so I can compare) and they hold the tuning as firmly as Grover 18:1 Sta-Tites - I have them too, they are simple but extremely stable, from my experience).

Another thing that I like is that the relatively large knobs make these tuners very "handy" and easy to operate (may be that is why they "feel" the same as the 18:1 Gotohs); nice also from an aesthetic point of view.

In my case the chrome "colour" was exactly what I wanted, but it is perhaps pity that there are no other options available (gold, black).

The locking mechanism of these Schallers is very good and useful. Just remember that the thickest string one can use with these Schallers is gauge 56 and this already with some difficulty - but usual medium strings with low E in gauge 56 are still OK.

simply the best!

the only negative thing I can tell about those is that they are not coming in black...!

The absolute best

The Schaller Locking tuners is as good as it gets. I've tested lots of other brands of tuners on my builds, name it and I've tested them. But these beat them all. Smooth action, precision made and beautiful finish.

Smooth Operation

I use these with pearloid buttons on a lot of guitars. I prefer the thicker locking-knob over the Sperzers.

Kind of pricey, but they are very solid.

Schallers are better than Sperzels

Have em both .. Schallers are simpler to use, better locking wheel and add perfect weight to the neck

Heavy Duty German Tuners

By resoamp from Beechworth Australia

3 a Side locking tuners. It's good to know that if your guitar is ever caught up in a thermo-nuclear explosion, your tuners will survive. Chromed and heavy! Hidden locating pin does away with mounting screws that seem to strip if you attempt to undo them. 16:1 ratio and s-m-o-o-t-h winding makes tuning accurate. Best of all, you just poke in the string, tighten the large knurled nut and you are tuning. No pre-winding and no extra coils around the peg to make tuning non-linear.

Will they make you play better? No. Do they look vintage? No. One side benefit of their weight, was that balance of my guitar on the strap was improved. The price was good too!

Excellent Tuners!

These came stock on my G&L S-500 and I wanted a set on my G&L ASAT Classic. Replaced the ASAT standard tuners with these in about 10 minutes and all is good. Excellent service from StewMac!

Best Tuners!!

These are the most consistent and well built tuners that I have used. Excellent gear ratio for accurate tuning. Will use on all future builds.

Rock solid!!

I absolutely love these tuners! Its made string changes so much faster and easier and like they should, they keep the guitar in tune really well. I go through an entire show without having to worry about tuning issues. The posts don't wobble one bit, and in fact, they're quite a snug fit in the tuner holes of my Godin Freeway Classic. The only issue I have with these tuners is that they added a little bit of extra weight on the guitar at the headstock, but that's nothing that I cannot get used to.
