      Excellent quality as expected from Hipshot. Easy to install and adjust and not as heavy as I thought it was going to be, in fact, I can barely feel the difference in weight. Once adjusted stays in tune all the time.

        These are simply the best! They work, and allow the 4 string bassist the ability of drop tuning with the flick of a lever. Installs in minutes with a small Phillips screwdriver.

          Comments about Hipshot BT1 Bass Xtender Key for Musicman and G&L:

          The BT1 has been the single best improvement for my Stingray. The machine tuner's components are very tight and hold tune extremely well in both E and when dropped to the D setting. The micro adjusting is also very tight and high quality and the entire unit could not be easier to install. If you can turn a screwdriver, you can install the BT1. This is my 3rd drop tuner to buy over the years, and this one is deginitely the best.

                  Stingray 4. Easy to install. Easy to set. Does not go back to PERFECT tune, but close enough no one will notice. Easy to trigger on the fly

                      I've used Hipshot Extender Keys on other basses in the past, and besides the added weight, I LOVE THESE THINGS! It's easy to install with a small Phillip's screwdriver. It expands my lower range nicely. I de-tune to a C#, and it holds it. Note: if you tune down the extender key this low (C# A D G), it will throw off your intonation on the other strings just a bit. Not enough to notice in a live setting though. As well, you may need to raise the action on your E string a tad, and/or choice to use a heavier gauged E string; but I recommend these to any and all 4stringers!!! \m/

                          The holes of the base plate matched the existing screw holes, resulting in simple, smooth and effortless installation. The most arduous part was unwinding and winding the E string.
