the split post on my deans A just halved...what should i replace my machines with
Could you please explain that a different way? Can't quite understand what you're trying to say.
ok, the split part of the string post on my tuning machine, where your rest the ladder part of the string to tune, half of the split post snapped off while i was tuning, what machines should i replace my apparantly cheap chinese machines with, thes a sealed machines not elephant ears
I had this exact same thing happen to me the other day. Don't go with grover. Ping seems to be holding up though I think they're made by the same company.
how do you know if grovers are grovers? the machines on my dean were supposed to be grovers but they say made in china, either way, im dissapointed, any other machine recommendations, just for variety?
lol,not that anyone is helpingme/reading this, but i put a tuning machine from my ovation on it and yuned it up, and the same thing happened! and my string broke :/, so im in need of a set of gold tuners(reccomendation?) and a set of black tuners(5 string, 3 bass side)(recommendations besides ping?) any help or comment at all would be apreciated
correction, both sets of machines are korean made, are grovers made in korea? or am i just misinformed
If they are grover, they will have grover written on them.
where you from faust23?
Sperzel locking tuners.
^This. Knowing Your location in a case like this will help a lot, especially with the "where to get 'em from?".
I'd probably buy Schallers or Gotohs from Thomann. But then again, I'm from Europe.
It usually pays to support Your local music shop as well, they can usually match the on-line prices.
so iv'e heard ping,schaller,gotoh, and my personal favourite without ever really experiencing them, sperzel, pros and cons at all?
its down to sperzel,gotoh and schaller, which do i buy? im a fan of the locking mechanism on sperzels but im not a fan of the 12.1 ratio? opinions please
Sperzels are extremely well machined gears, but if you like taking longer to tune up, a higher ratio gear may be your choice.
yeah they say grover on them. Which furthers my disdain for Korean junk.
Gotohs are good machines. Fender uses them on their guitars. They even have custom shop stuff with gotoh tuners set up on them. Check stewmac for tuners and check the peghole size. all three are great machines but it may come down to peghole size. you can't go wrong with any of the three tuning brands
yea , when i played guitar i swore by grovers, anyway, whats the peghole size of grovers? cuz thats them
When I had the same problem I switched to a Warwick set. My bass is nothing like a Warwick but they work a dream. Proper German set too. Put me back about £45 ish... Worth it.
Go with the Sperzels. You won't regret it.
