Economy Open Gear 3+3 Tuners

About This Item

These inexpensive tuners are a quick and easy way to get your guitar up and strummin' again.

This open-gear set is ideal for fixing up those "yardsale special" guitars. Chrome with white plastic knobs.

  • 14:1 gear ratio
  • Fit 5/16"-diameter pegholes
  • Mounting screws and pre-fit bushings included
  • Set of 6: 3 left/3-right

Installation Tips

Bushings: We recommend the #2061 Bushing Reamer (.328" diameter) to cut a clean, accurate counterbore for a professional job. Fit the press-fit tuner bushings correctly so your tuners will work smoothly.

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.

For the price these are good tuners. I would like to see more options in terms of finish and button style, but For low budget projects you can't beat them.

If you want to make some project/experimental instruments or refurbish some trash, these can't be beat!! The next step up in price is waaay beyond reasonable for those types of use. If, however, you are replacing tuners on "your baby," spring for the gotoh, etc. Ain't nobody got time for that!

I like the economy tuners, but the last order I received the tuners appeared to be lighter ,not as strong as before.

Why pay more!

I required economy tuners for a community project making cigar box ukeleles. These turned out to be perfect for the job. They come with bushings, which means that they should stand up well to the test of time.

I use Economy 0pen Gear Tuners on a lot of the instruments that i build and have had very good luck with them. Out of many sets that i have used have only three tuners that were bad. I have been very impressed with Stewart Macdonald service and products.
