Great tuner

These are great tuners! I really like quality feeling and the slightly higher 18:1 ratio. One of my standard tuners.

Very nice for the money

They aren't Waverlys or comparable high end tuner, but if you want a solid tuner for a price that will not break the bank then these will function great.

A great value

Good quality item where it counts for a good price. I like the sound and character of old guitars, but the tuners are always a struggle. Going from 12:1 to 18:1 tuning ratio with these tuners has made my older instruments easier to use than my modern ones.
The only thing that I don't like about these tuners is the hex ferrules. I would prefer that they had gone with round, but that has nothing to do with the solid performance of these tuners.

Was happy

I have purchased 8 sets of gold sta-tites over the last 5 years and have been quite happy until the last set of which two of the tuners had a large amount of slop, probably 1/8 of a turn of slack when going from tighten to loosen or back. This is quite bad to me so I have probably bought my last Grover's

Great Switch

I just bought a Gibson J-45 and switched out the old Grovers for the 18:1 Sta-Tites and I love the result. First, they are simply a better tuner than the stock Grovers that came with the guitar, and as they are open-backed, the look is terrific, and at a much lower price than the Waverlys I had initially wanted. If you do this for the J-45, you also need the 10.5 bushing for the peg holes. I also swapped out the crappy plastic bridge pins for a set of snakewood pins. Better look, better tone, and all for under 75 bucks. You can't beat it.

Much better value for money than others

I have used both these and Waverly vintage-style tuners, and these are a clear winner. They have slightly finer action, and I can detect no significant difference in appearance, installation or function. Waverly uses different metal for the gear and bushings, and this may have long-term benefits that I haven't seen yet, but otherwise the Sta-Tites are a much better value. I give customers the choice, and they take the Grovers unless they are image-conscious. The $100 saved can be better invested in overall guitar quality by buying better tonewood.

Save Some Money

I have used several brands of vintage style tuners and the Grover Sta-Tites are simply the best for the money and as good the more expensive Waverly's. Go ahead, save yourself about $105.00

Grover 18:1 Statites

Excellent tuners. Replaced the stock tuners on a Martin 000 28 and Gibson j 45. Much lighter and more accurate than the stock tuners. Looks better too. Great product and great price too.
