Tuning Machines, or machineheads, tuners, tuning pegs, turny thingies... whatever you know them as, having a good set is imperative to making your guitar play in tune. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes and configurations for different applications with the most popular being locking tuners which are the modern player’s choice. The benefits of a locking machine head include super-fast restringing, elimination of slack and excess strings, no slips and precise tuning adjustment. We have machine heads in stock from Schaller, Fender, Sperzel and Tone Pros.
Our most popular machine heads here at Strings Direct are the Schaller M6’s. The first patented locking tuner on the market and it’s still the leader. The system is very convenient and low profile; from the front you can’t even see it! It uses a knurled thumbscrew to lock the string in place and then you’re away. Shop Schaller M6 here.
