Need Velve Tune BII Bass Machine Head

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by denhamlee, Aug 13, 2005.


  1. I have an Ibanez Musician Series Fretless bass. My son broke off one of the Machine Heads. It is a Velve BII. Anyone know where I could get one. It appears they are difficult to find. Help. dennis

    Yeah, they do seem difficult to find, indeed. I'm in a similar boat as you; I just broke one of the treble-side Velve BII tuners on my (borrowed, to boot!) MC 888 musician bass, just this morning. Having read about these tuners ahead of time, I wasn't too happy about breaking it, as I now have a rather un-fun chore ahead of me. Best of luck with your search for a tuner, and if I find any source of these things, I'll let you know.

    I just replaced all the tuners on my '82 Musician MC924 with Hipshot HB6Y-1/2" Ultralight tuners and they are an excellent fit. I got them at www.planetbass.com and their service was also excellent. Hope this helps those in the same boat...
