From D-droppen and C-Benden
Matthias aus M., 21.10.2009
Me is this disorder on Dropped D an abomination. Then back again. Always tuner, by-pass loop, rum screws .. That annoys. Much cooler and relaxed tuts the hipshot.

Simply move the lever and the D is there. Lever again high - ei there an E. The whole goes simply and always again and also times in the middle of the song. Small deviations in the tonal accuracy here are due to the fact that the string has to slip over the saddle during the tuning (in both directions, ie from E to D and from D to E). If the indentation is too tight and the side is not properly free, the notch should be reworked and possibly with a suitable "lubricant" (caution: do not use oil, most saddles are made of plastic, oil can make plastic brittle). Otherwise, the thing works without problems.

For the studio insert, however, I would change old-tried with tuner. For the live thing, but this is all right. It is also possible to realize other changes over eg 1.5 sound steps. I use it also among other things in a 7-string the originally deep B-string from the deep A to C "to".

Difficulties may make the "optically appropriate" wing to the existing set. Simply replacing the wing works only conditionally. I have not had any luck so far. With the colors, it is slightly easier. Chrome, gold and black are common.
Wehrtstropfen are the one for the assembly a hole in the head plate has to drill and the high price. The quality of the hipshot is very solid.

The best way to switch tuning standard tuning dropp
Nico DustBowl, 23.06.2011
Switching from a standard tuning to a dropped tuning (the lowest tuned tuning 1 tighter tone) quickly, quietly and reliably is tricky without this tool.

This mechanism replaces the low-E mechanics (Schaller or Grover look), without drilling because it is standard 10mm in diameter. The screws are aligned with the original threads (usually), so it is quick to implement (except mechanical vintage type "tulip", so the axis is 8mm) and reversible.

Once installed, a simple mechanical screw and spring system regulates the difference between the mid and the d, then it is enough to tilt the mechanism via the lever to move from one tuning to another. The tuning a little less precise but it remains suitable.

I use for 4 years 2 hipshots, with various and high tie rods and they are very reliable, solidly constructed. The only complaint is their price, but there is no cheaper alternative and so simple to my knowledge.

For the fans of open tuning and Metal (the drop being often used in Metal), I find this accessory almost indispensable.
