Turbo Tune™ is a cleverly designed string-winding crank that also pulls apart: use it by hand or with your cordless screwdriver. Its versatile socket fits practically any guitar or bass tuner knob, to make string changing fast and easy. The handle is conveniently notched for pulling stubborn bridge pins, too.

Turbo Tune is made of dense, highly durable plastic, with a 1/4" steel hex stem. It's also available in a special glow-in-the-dark model that comes to the rescue on dimly-lit concert stages.

it's Ok!

Perfect use with an electric screwdriver. A tip to users use of the manual: Disassemble the lever and put a drop of mineral oil ... the Turbo Tune will flow fast .. like a turbo!

One O My Favourite Bass Tool

I use this tool with an electrical screwdriver when ever I'm tuning / untuning bass strings. It works great, especially with the big Fender bass tuners. Not so good with guitar tuners though. For those I use the string winder that Stew Mac also sells

Pretty average because of tightness.

I bought this string winder because it comes apart easily and works great with my cordless screwdriver. I'm glad it does because it's not that great when using by hand. It's too tight and the shaft is a bit long and awkward. When winding without the drill, I prefer my cheapo from the guitar store.

Turbo tune

I recently purchased the glow in the dark turbo tune. I would start off by saying. exceedingly stiff! Size. I also payed attention to as well.To me it was just too big. Actually clumsy. Hitting the other tuner buttons. And a plastic care tool for pulling pins , tuning an instrument. I just feel that they should step up their game with something a bit more exciting. relevant.These tuners I can get all day long for a dollar. Or with a receipt for a pack of strings!

Despite what others say...

This is by far the most valuable tool in my shop. It makes it easy and fast to change strings, which means no time lost. I use it on my power drill and with a little practice, you can dial it in before you go too far. I will never use another winder again!
