I just started making ukuleles and this is a great tuner for the price. However, the screws that came with it are not very durable. They can easily snap if screwed too tightly. Also, one of the tuner in the package I received was missing the hole where the string goes. Fortunately, StewMac is sending me a replacement.
Overall, good product but could be improved just a bit.
tuners came and are working well,no complaints at all.
price fine too.
These things are great for my ukulele building. The shipping was fast and I got them at a great price. Thanks
I've been doing an upgrade on my late father-in-law's early 1960s Silvertone soprano uke. The Grover ukulele tuning machines were the perfect finish. Smooth, accurate tuning. Now that the old plastic friction tuners are gone it stays in tune.
I cut out the wooden bridge saddle and replaced it with a better saddle and put on some Aquila Nylgut strings. This little uke now sounds better than my Lanikai concert. Oh yeah, I ordered the tuners on Monday and they were here Thursday. Great service and great tuners at a reasonable price. Can't ask for more than that.
These tuners work very well and have been consistent. However, I noticed the first time I installed the gold plated version that they were just a tiny bit larger in diameter than the silver plated ones. I had to do a bit of extra reaming to get them to fit properly.
To be fair, these tuners were worth the low price. However, I'd pay twice the price for a little better finish quality.
I Chose to upgrade to the Grover gold plated black knobs for my uke build. Set off the ivory inlay. Great price, great tuners and look a million dollars.
exactly what I need for this project...
the tuning machines came out just wright for my cuatro
I've used Grover tuners on all my instruments for over forty years or more. The quality is superior. The price is right. Thanks to Dan Erlewine for his article on plugging old screw holes. Although seldom seen except by the player, filling these holes is simply indicative of a true craftsman. Keep on keeping on!
