Machine heads are known also as tuning keys or pegs, tuners or gear heads but they all do the same.They are used to wind the strings on your instrument and tune it to pitch. Good tuners can help you to stay in tune and not worry about it so you can focus on your playing.
Guitar tuners are the first thing you should consider when upgrading your bass or a guitar.

What guitar tuners do you need?

There is a wide variety of tuners available on the market. They can be divided into several groups depending on their application and construction.
First and foremost you have to choose the correct tuners for your guitar. Classical guitars require different tuners than acoustic guitars while electric and acoustic guitars often use the same types.
Most important is to find out what type of tuners do you have and want to use.
There are differences in mounting type, so please check if you need tuners that have a screw or two on the back, do they need a pressed-in bushing or a screw and nut.
Look at your instrument and check if you need a 6 in-line or 3 left + 3 right set. There are some other variations at the market as well.

 

What are good guitar tuner brands?

We do sell guitar tuners and bass tuners of almost every kind and from most respectable brands such as Gotoh, Grover, Schaller, Kluson, GraphTech or Hipshot. We do offer also some more budget-friendly solutions from VPART, Boston and some others. Most guitar tuners are sold in sets prepared for a specific instrument and most of the bass tuners are sold individually.

 

What is a gear ratio and why does it matter?

Modern tuners use gear mechanism and offer much greater precision and tunning stability than friction tuning pegs which are still used on old-style instruments such as violins, cellos, etc. The greater gear ratio the better precision they offer. The standard ratio can vary from 1:14 for vintage tuners up to 1:18, 1:21 or even higher in some cases.
Most modern tuners have gears enclosed and lubricated so they can live longer and turn smoother but there are also some very high-quality open geared tuners available.

 

How to mount the tuners to the guitar neck?

Tuners can be mount to the guitar neck headstock in a few different ways. Most common are tuners mounted with one or more small wood screws on the back and a dedicated nut and washer on top of the headstock while vintage-style tuners used a pressed-in bushing in the front and a screw or two on the back.
Look closely as there are some tuners that look vintage but use a nut and washer just like the modern tuners.
Classical guitars, as well as some acoustic and electric guitars, have tuners mounted in slotted headstock.
