Cheap and effective. Perfect for an old giutar with buzzing tuners.

great for projects

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!

Fit the need perfectly

These tuning machines are exactly what I needed, and the price is better than fair.

Economy tuner quanlity

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

We're happy to hear that you like these tuners. We thought you'd like to know that we did check our stock, and it appears the weight of the tuner has not changed. Thank you for review, and if there's anything we can do, don't hesitate to ask.

Have a few sets of these on hand for projects

Tuners might be the hardest thing on a stringed instrument to try to make/fake yourself, so if you build instruments as a hobby its a must to have a few of these on hand at all times. These are economy tuners, but that doesn't mean they crappy. They're definitely sturdy enough for any kind of guitar. I used these in a few cigar box guitars and they've held up fine. I did have a screw head shear off, but that might have been my fault.

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.

Economy Tuners

Economy is an accurate description. Yes the work, but the have a lot of backlash and I have already had a tooth break on the gear of one set. These will work if you can't or don't want to spend a little more. Even for low budget builds such as cigar box banjos, I will spend a little more and get better quality tuners next time.

Tuners do exactly as advertised, nothing more and nothing less. I used them on a couple of projects that came out great. Stew-Mac did a great job with these.

Economy Open Gear Tuners

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.
