conformist tuners

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Davidoc, Feb 24, 2002.

  1. What's with Bass tuners?

    It's either the standardy kind, or the Fenderish type. Nothing else really.

    For guitars it's even worse! They only have one type.

    Function. Function over style.

    Well, you DO have the y tuners, the Cloverleaf (or Elephant ear) tuners, the bridge tuners, AKA headless. and the ones on the Dingwalls I've seen are Rectangular. I could also sweat Modulus has a bit of a design to them. And I think Grestch(sp?) has "bart simpson" tuners on some of the older ones.

    But really, what other shapes would be practical, if not at least funtionional? A square, an oval?
  3. don't forget about fender's new tuners. or the heart-shaped tuners (not like cloverleaf)

    As for guitars, kramer sometimes put skull/crossbones tuners on their guitars-very cool.

    On the subject of tuners, what's up with those Gary Willis tuners? What's the advantage of those?
