There might have been a post on this, but I haven't found what I'm looking for...I want to switch out my tuning machines on my bass...My problem is I live in Hawaii. Yes...living in Hawaii does have its shares of problems. I perform at a few hotels, outside, near the ocean. The tuning machines on my upright has lost its plating (flaking off). I'm looking for something solid. A few of the solid brass ones I saw (Krutz) were nice. Searching the internet, not a lot out there at the various store sites. I need something durable, and if its solid brass, I know I can polish it up when it needs it, but not worry about it flaking off. Can anyone point me in a good direction for a few good tuning machines? I'm looking to pay $300 to $400 for a set...yes, willing to spend a little, so I don't have to worry for a LONG time...Brand names? Great craftmanship? Good looking tuning machines?
