Tuning machines/pegs for Cirrus USA

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by JC Vallejo, May 30, 2019.

  1. Hi! Yesterday I was at the very beginning of a rehearsal and I broke a tuning machine (D string). It popped and sounded like a breaking string and now I can twist the peg all way around and the rod won't wind the string around it.

    I wish I can get a single tuning machine but so far I haven't found one specific for a Peavey Cirrus in gold finish so I'm afraid that I'll need to buy a set for the 6 strings.

    Do you know a brand/ model that may look pretty similar and able to fit? I'm aware that the bore diameter is a thing to look at. I'm assuming that I should uninstall the current one and measure the wood? or maybe the spec is the thread diameter? I want to get sure that I'll buy the right one.

    Or maybe if you got a fallen Cirrus USA with golden hardware and willing to sell a single tuning machine it would be awesome. Thanks!

  2. Have you tried to find out who made those tuners for Peavey? On a US made bass I'd think it'd be one of the major manufacturers.

    Have you taken the tuner apart to see what went wrong with it?

    Can you provide close-up photos of the tuners? Perhaps someone here can identify them for you.

    You want Gotoh machine heads, the GB720 to be specific. The GB707 and GB350 will also fit. Allparts carries the GB720 (though they miss categorize it as a GB707.)
