In most cases the tuners that come with factory built guitars are okay at best. After a while I decided to replace my tuners for something way better. These Schallers were expensive but certainly worth the money. The action is smooth and precise and the locks hold well. Getting strings on and off the guitar is now very easy and fast. It's possible to have many different string sets at once and change them on the fly if you need a different tuning and the current ones are too thin or thick. The largest gauge you can fit through is .056.
I replaced mu old tuners on two of my guitars, because I didn't like that they did not stay tuned and I also wanted a different winding factor. I chose Schaller after checking out the guitars' of some friends and I decided to give them a shot. PROS: - locking tuners, they stay where they should, guitar stays in tune (please note I also changed the bridges, from stock ones to Babicz) - good quality, very well built - colour stays well even after using them quite intensively - great buy for the money, maybe the best in this range CONS - none that I can tell
It was a good and very inspired decision, it improved heavily the quality of the guitars and eased my life as I don't have to re-tune as often as before. I have two more guitars in my luthier's workshop, they will both receive Schaller tuners.
