the idea is great, and the guitar ones are great.
how are the bass ones?
There are bass ones?
then hit the "link" button
and then on the window hit tuners.
they list bass.
I have locking Sperzels on a couple US Masters basses.
They are very high quality machines, very smooth and precise. The adjustable thumbwheel locking device is ingenious. Most definitely premium hardware (as reflected by their price).
The downside is snipping off the excess string leader after installing strings. This makes it difficult to transfer strings back to traditional type machines (if desired), which require a bit more leader.
I like them, but given a choice, I prefer US Hipshot Ultralites.
They are also standard on US Curbow basses. Really nice, but +1 on the hip shots.
well, i rele wont have to be transferring them back. as far as holding their tune and ease of use, which would u prefer?
I have Sperzels on both of my Curbows and they're fantastic! I can't speak for hipshots, but the Sperzels have served me very well for almost three years now.
Given the choice of any brand of tuner, I would pick the Sperzels. I've had them on quite a few different Curbows over the years and they are the best.
As for not being able to transfer the strings to a different bass, it never even occured to me that that would enter into the equation when evaluating tuners. Of course, that's just me--it never came up in 20 years of playing....
