Schaller M-6 3+3 Guitar Machines

About This Item

High quality machines with 18:1 ratio, sealed lubrication, adjustable knob tension, cast housings, threaded hex peghead bushings and removable metal knobs.

All Schaller M6 tuners require 10mm (13/32")-diameter pegholes. Sold in sets of 6, with mounting screws, threaded bushings and washers included.

Installation Tips

Mounting screws: Pilot holes required. Installing delicate screws into hard wood requires great care and accuracy. We highly recommend the #1713 Depth-stop Drill Bit (No.44 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.

Drop In Replacement For Grover Minis on Gibson J-15

By

Verified Buyer


As the title of the review suggests, M6 180 tuning machines replaced the Grover Mini Rotomatics on my Gibson J-15 using the original alignment screw holes. The alignment isn’t exactly like the Grovers. Instead of the tuning knobs aligning across the head stock, they more closely match the head stock taper. Overall, tuning is smooth and stable like it’s supposed to be. One thing to note, I had to use a tapered reamer to remove some finish from the head stock holes so that the bushings would fit. The bushings are a definite upgrade over washers. The string winding posts do not move or rattle at all prior to stringing up the guitar.

Excellent tuning machines

I had compare the measurements very carefully when choosing this set (because of the narrow snake-head stock). It is extremely handy to have design dimensions on the web page. These fit perfectly and provide very stable tuning.

Excellent Replacement Tuner Machines

I have an 1979 Guild Acoustic guitar that had Guild (Schaller) machines on it. I replaced those tuners with these gold Schaller machines and it was an almost exact replacement. I had to slightly open up the Headstock tuner holes to accommodate the tuner shaft bushing. I did this by using a round file to ever so slightly increase the hole diameter. Schaller's are made in Germany and are very nice tuners.. I have also used Waverly, Gotoh and Grover tuners.. They are ALL very good tuners.

perfect

40 year old Guild dreadnaught Brazilian rosewood - wanted to use Gotoh, but reconsidered when couldn't find gold with ebony knobs - old ones were getting a little sticky
1. Schaller fit perfectly
2. these area 18:1 replaced 12:1
3. a little smaller than the old ones, but just have small finish line exposed
4. no need to drill mouinting screw hole as new ones fit old mounting screw hole exactly
5. post hole needed to be reamed (use a real reamer) because old post had two different thicknesses - new ones have a top nut the goes INTO the hole so hole muist be all one thickness -- ream it out and then file to exact size - (see stew mac videos and youtube videos also)
6. replaced chrome with gold with ebony knobs (see pic below)

Spec is different.

By

Verified Buyer


It seems that spec on the web is different from actual size, weight and gear ratio. Size became smaller, weight lighter and gear ratio is 16:1.

Quality is excellent but you should re-write spec on your web.

Response from StewMac


Hi Hiroshi,
Thank you for sharing your honest feedback with us. We appreciate you bringing this issue to our attention. I've placed a request with our marketing department to update the technical specs listed on our website to those of the current model of Schaller M-6 3+3 Guitar Machines. It will be corrected soon to the 18:1 ratio, and smaller, lighter specs.
