Very useful!
DroidXXVII, 20.04.2020
An essential tool for guitar and bass players! Can use the included hand-crank or you can remove the head and connect it to a power screwdriver or cordless drill/screwdriver to wind up much faster.

pros:
Very inexpensive!
Allows one to use it with the hand crank or an electric screwdriver / cordless drill.

cons:
There are none.

Highly recommended!

Great help for changing strings
Zeka, 25.03.2020
Everyone should have one of these. It's a must for changing strings on any guitar, spend less time winding and more time playing!

Excellent feature is that you can also detach the head and use it with your cordless electric screwdriver. I don't own an electric screwdriver, this thing is fast enough on it's own.

I had a cheap winder some time ago, but it didn't fit properly and it would always hit other tuning pegs when turning, or coming off. So that one was annoying while this one works perfectly.

Works as expected
GlockR, 27.08.2019
Larger than expected which makes the process a little more awkward than necessary, but the ability to split the head attachement and use it on a hand drill (for example) more than makes up for that.

Solid construction.
Happy with it.

Time saver!
Bopmarty, 02.07.2020
This thing is a big time saver changing strings. It can be used manually but also comes apart and can be attached to an electric screw driver. It's made of plastic but after years of use it isn't showing any signs of wear. Can't live without it!

Essential tool for guitarists
03.01.2015
After being fed up with slow string changing, I finally ordered a speedwinder to do the time-consuming part of the process. I was first suspicious about the quality, but this cheap gadget turned out to be very solid and long-lasting. It is mainly made out of plastic, so it's also very light to carry with. The head is detachable and can be mounted on a power drill for quicker unwinding. However, the detaching of the head is a challenge, but the good thing about this is the head really isn't going to fall of accidentally. I would recommend the guitar techs to buy two of these, so you don't have to waste precious time when struggling to detach the head.

Other than that, this winder is a true all-arounder, and can be used on all sizes of string instrument tuners, all the way from mandolins to bass guitars. Also, the head piece is long enough to keep the winder from hitting the other tuners.

This HB speedwinder is a very durable piece of guitar equipment for your pocket money, and it really makes changing strings faster and more fun.

Good for standard tuners
DeeAyEm, 28.02.2020
If you use standard tuners, this will make winding and unwinding easier. A useful tool for the price!

Smooth and efficient
taddeomaiden, 18.01.2019
This winder works much better than many more expensive others. It's very smooth and works fine with both guitar and bass tuning machines, and the possibility to detach the head and use it with a drill to speed up the process is just great.

It does what it's supposed to
kazhinsky, 26.11.2019
Basically it works as one would hope. I would prefer if the slit for the tuning peg had a snugger fit, but then it couldn't be used as universally I suppose or would require a lot less cost-effective design.

It's simple and it works, not much else to add.

Nice and reasonably priced
Bavarian Barbarian, 02.06.2019
This is the first string winder I have ever owned. The construction seems pretty solid and the operation is pretty much what I was expecting. Unless you string guitars on an assembly line for a living, I can't imagin why you would spend more on a piece of kit like this.

The best winder, IMO
Keith H., 31.05.2013
The best winder, IMO

Very tough, high quality textured plastic, with detachable head for cordless use

longer head that most, so avoids hitting other tuners.

Three size slots, so easy fit for any guitar tuner, from P-bass to 12 string dreadnought

Great winder, the only one to buy IMO.

The perfect combination of well made, good design and good price. The plastic feels very solid. Crank winder, electric drill attachment and bridge pin puller, can't ask for more.

I recommend this speedwinder
mjölk, 16.01.2020
Good craftsmanship, snug fit on most of tuning keys, single downside is that the winder slips often when using on bass guitar tuning pegs.

Best part is that it can be used with multifunctional hand screwdrivers and electric screwdrivers (the head is detachable).

Speedwinder that lives up to its name
Raymond588, 15.12.2017
I have had this for a couple of years now and it is still in great working order. It works well on six string guitars, ukuleles and bass guitars and does its job admirably. When fitting new strings on any instrument I have found that using an electric screwdriver is far easier than a drill as the screwdriver works at a slower pace and is smaller in the hand. Also I can take it with the Speedwinder on gigs, in case I break a string and need to change it quickly

If you are buying this forget all about tunning guitars, I guess it's supposed to work on the basses better

Nice Speedwinder
JJ5191, 19.05.2018
Always restrained myself from getting one of this before, because I though my hands were good enough for winding up my guitar strings, but now that I got it, I can't believe I didn't use it before. Overall a very robust and comfortable speedwinder

Works well with an electric drill
07.04.2015
One problem - the jack is meant to adapt to different kinds of tuning knobs, and as a result doesn't fit any one type very well. I've largely abandoned using this product.

High production quallity
17.12.2014
Feels like it's meant to last ages. So far I used it on 3 different types of tuners and it fits each of them very well. Makes a quick work out of changing the strings. Would recommend to anyone.

Good and solid.
Matias M., 13.01.2015
Does it's job and fits all pegs, has two sizes (universal and small peg)

After many string changes I can say the tool is still like new.

Satisfied.

Game changer
11.11.2016
This is a massive step up from the cheap and tacky winders that you usually see, very solid and reassuring to use and being able to take it and use it on an electric screwdriver makes string changing lightning fast which actually improves your winding and therefore tuning stability. Definitely recommended.

quality doesn't need to be expensive
Barry R., 15.01.2014
even though i have a string winder from another manufacturer i got this one for the added bonus of being able to detach part of it and fit it to a cordless screw driver. if you are changing mulitple sets of strings it is a great time and labour saving device
