Economy 3-on-Plate Tuners

About This Item

For solid or slotted peghead steel-string guitars. These inexpensive open-gear tuners will make that yardsale special playable again!

They're versatile: the 1/4" (6.35mm)-diameter string posts have double holes, so you can install these tuners on solid or slotted pegheads. Nickel-plated with white plastic knobs.

1-3/8" (34.93mm) string post spacing, 14:1 gear ratio. Complete set of 3-left, 3-right. Mounting screws included.


Installation Tips

Mounting screws: Pilot holes required. Installing delicate screws into hard wood requires great care and accuracy. We highly recommend the #1711 Depth-stop Drill Bit (No.50 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.

Great for the Purpose Intended

By

Verified Buyer


I find and/or buy cheaper, used guitars and fix them up for donation to various needed organizations. Many times the tuners need to be replaced along with other parts. Don' t be fooled by the low cost of these. Despite their modest construction and price, these do a fine job at maintaining tune for most guitars I have refurbished. I always keep a couple of sets at hand for simpler jobs.

Fixing up an old Kay arch top f-hole acoustic

I first came across this old Kay acoustic when I was in college and my girlfriend had it. I lost track of her and the guitar for over 40 years. It wound up on the wall of another college friend and I parlayed a deal to get the guitar. It just needed tuners and these Economy 3 on a plate tuners were a perfect replacement. They work well and now this old classic can be tuned and played again.

Economy, but Just right!

I have a vintage 60's guitar that didn't need any of the high end machine heads. This did the trick. Easy to install and required very little effort to install. My guitar sounds like new again. Nothing pretty, but very solid. Will be playing this guitar for another 50 years.

The item worked well, I only had to open up the holes for the pegs and redrill some of the mounting holes. I like doing that stuff anyway. Thanks.

These were a breeze to install. It went so quickly that I did 2 guitars! Now they are playable again after sitting up for about 30 years. I would definitely recommend these.

These tuners were of no higher quality than the economy style tuners already installed on my daughters 3/4 classical. No bushings come with these tuners and I think it should be mentioned that there may be a need for bushings as I had to interchange the set of full stems and bushings from the old tuners just to make it work as they were glued on. Cost + Shipping $7.00. Shipping cost was 70% as much as the total purchase. Not much of a value!
