Rugged die-cast outer casing houses precision-machined 18:1 bevel and worm gears, providing smooth, exact tuning, while virtually eliminating backlash and slippage. The string clamp and cutting mechanism makes the chore of restringing a snap.

I got these from MF and had the same problem others reported. The E and B strings would not clamp. I called, they gladly sent another set, same problem. This time I called the support # on planet waves website. The rep told me they had bad tolerances on some of the sets that went out. He took my address and sent me two new locks. These work just fine (I use .009 gauge strings). I suggest anyone that buys these to mount them, then pull the strings through but leave plenty of slack. Lock them down short of where you normally would and pull on them, if the string slips you need to call them if not you're good. Once I got the right clamps they work great. They fit perfectly on my '78 Ibanez ST300 and they make it look new. I love the black posts.

I have used these tuners for years, and they do work well, and hold tune very well "only" after being "extremely" careful when stretching the strings during tuning. After getting the strings locked in, cut off and initially in tune, if you remotely try to stretch/bend the strings and then retune unless you hold the string around the 1st fret to help secure the string, it pops out "every" time. I just used the old hold it at the first fret all these years, but now I'm getting very aggrevated that I am ruining strings because they keep popping out and are useless when they are brand new strings. Sure they hold tune outstandingly after all the strings are all stretched out but getting to that point is about pointless with these things. Cheap stock tuners off a $100 guitar at least hold the strings while bending/stretching and if your gotta tune between songs, then tune between songs. It's easier than breaking the strings before they ever get in tune.

    I am a luthier and I use these almost exclusively on my steel string acoustic and electric guitars. The ease of use and the great functionality of these tuners is top notch. The guitar stays in tune better and no tools are needed to change the strings which is also quicker and easier.

        Great tuning machines. I have these on two guitars now and they work well. They keep the guitar in tune as well as the Grovers and Schalers, yet they have the unique feature that they clip your strings. As you tune, a blade clips the string internally so there is ZERO string clippings that pokes your finger and catch on fabric. Makes stringing cleaner and easier. Love 'em!

          Upgraded two inexpensive guitars with chrome & black machines. Required slight increase in hole dia. to fit. Better ratio = easy tuning. Locking = quick string change & no more multiple wraps which increase tuning stability. Auto-trim = no side cutters in every guitar case. I have had no problems with 9 & 10 ga. strings slipping out.

              I didn't think simply changing the tuners on my guitar could make such a massive difference, when in reality this was one of the best upgrades I've ever performed on my guitar, and it's been modified A LOT. After doing a string change for a customer who had these tuners on their guitar, I figured that it would be nice to get myself a set because I loved the idea of changing strings perfectly every time with no tools required. What I wasn't expecting was the rock-solid tuning stability that came with it. I can play my guitar for hours, go crazy with the tremolo, bend to the heavens and generally perform like a madman, then put the guitar down, walk away for a week, pick it up and play again knowing that it will STILL be in tune. Just make sure you give your strings a good stretching first. It's not my fault if you put new strings on and don't stretch them and get mad when they're flat a few minutes later.

              In response to people who have said that they had a failure in the locking mechanism, I'm just going to assume they didn't tighten the locks enough. Having read those reviews before buying, I made sure to screw those strings down like a champ. Then I tested them by pulling the strings almost half a foot away from the neck. Not a problem in the world. (Disclaimer, you might break your string doing that, I was simply testing the grip of the tuners.)

              I am literally going to put these on every guitar I own (except vintage ones for value reasons).

              Comments about Auto Trim Tuning Machines 6 In-Line:

              They stay in tune, but the strings are not always cutoff, even with the little ball facing the top of the headstock. Sometimes it is extremely difficult to start the string. I don't think I will purchase any more,
              I will continue to purchase the Sperzel or the Gotoh. The only thing I do like is the 18 to 1 ratio.

                          As a luthier and a performer I prefer these tuners for many reasons. Locking tuners help to keep instruments in tune. The self trimming feature eliminates the need for wire cutters or having to wind the stings into a loop ( a practice I find both time consuming and ugly ) The clean look of a perfectly trimmed string cleanly on the post is aesthetically pleasing and safer. ( have you ever been zapped by a high end string that sticking out as you passed your hand across the head stock? ) I just love the entire attention to detail in these tuners including the smooth gearing ratio.
