Schaller Classical Guitar Machines

About This Item

High quality 16:1 Hauser-style tuners for nylon-string classic guitars with slotted peghead and 1-3/8" (35mm) string roller spacing.

The roller sleeves are durable 3/8" (9.53mm) diameter white plastic. The knobs are handsome pearlescent plastic or genuine polished ebony.

Each set includes a pair of 3-left/3-right tuning machines with mounting screws.


Installation Tips

Peghole spacing: Plate-mounted tuners can't work efficiently if the pegholes are improperly aligned. Our Tuning Machine Drill Jig for Slotted Pegheads ensures the correct 1-3/8" string roller spacing for accurate tuning.

Mounting screws: Pilot holes required. Installing delicate screws into hard wood requires great care and accuracy. We highly recommend the #1712 Depth-stop Drill Bit (5/64" 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.

Upgrade to Schaller guitar machine

By

Verified Buyer


When I upgraded to Schaller guitar machine on my 1959 inexpensive nylon guitar, it made a big difference: held tunings, did not loosen. you can see the metal parts are much thicker stronger to hope opens gears.
Beautiful finish.

I had a customer with a gig and a broken tuner. Thanks to StewMac I got his main instrument up and running and he didn't have to use his backup, which made him happy. Thanks for the speedy service.

Quality Tuners (silver ones)

By

Verified Buyer


The silver tuners and pearloid buttons are well made and look expensive. The German made gearing is high quality so these tuners will likely provide smooth long lasting service. I will buy them again for one of my other guitars. The provided screws are shorter than most guitars will require so you may want to use longer screws on installation. I used the provided screws and they are adequate.

Smooth Operator

By

Verified Buyer


I have a 30 year old Spanish guitar that I bought in Spain while in college. One of the tuners bent so I changed them out. These are far better than what was on the guitar before. Very smooth. The holes for the screws did not line up but it was simple to install. They look great and function great.

Great Heads!

These are much superior to what I had on my second classical guitar. I bought cheap machine heads about 8 months ago and was very frustrated with the result--wouldn't stay in tune. The Schaller's are a huge improvement.

I am a 100% novice!! Although very intimidating at first- this was a pretty easy thing to do! *So good looking*

Great tuners

By

Verified Buyer


I bought these Schaller tuners to replace the factory installed tuners on a Cordoba CK Studio, which continually slipped out of tune. I no longer have that problem! The guitar stays in tune very well during performances and only occasional adjustments are needed, as normal.
