These precision-designed tuning machine with built-in hardened steel string cutters and individual string clamps are real time-savers.

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.

Don't Hold When Stretching When Tuning

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.

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Auto Trim Tuning Machines 6 In-Line:

    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.

          I've bought 2 of these. I put a 3 on a side set on my Godin and they are amazing! Holds tune great! Work exactly like advertized. Way better than any other brand, and I've tried them all...
          I put a set of 6 in a line on a Mexican Strat ant they didn't hold tune quite as well, but still work as good as any other brand I've tried. I guess they've got some quality control issues at the factory...

              I've installed these on a custom Strat project, and they're great!

              They lock the strings solidly, the auto-trim feature is unique and effective, and they stay in tune.

              Super-easy string replacement and impeccably smooth operation. All around, the best tuning machines out there, IMHO.

              the self cutting on the 6th string or .046 regular I use wire cutters because I know how much my old tuners take to break and as I tried to cut with the built in cutting I felt I was reaching that limit of breaking so I stopped.
