Indispensible

Comments about Hipshot GB7 Bass Extender Key Gotoh:

I have had one on my basses now for 10+ years. I love them on 5 strings (I have one on my Tobias), but they are absolutely necessary on a 4 string! If you do just ONE mod to a 4 string bass, this is the one - and the great thing is if you want to sell the bass, you can remove it and it is completely reversible - you don't even have to drill an extra hole in your bass!

Works great

By Tag-HQS0B

Comments about Hipshot GB7 Bass Extender Key Gotoh:

I've added the GB7 to two basses. Once you get the hang of tuning the two different notes at each end of the lever throw (doesn't take long), it's a snap.The only warning is that it works best if you have a quality graphite nut to allow the string to slip easily each way through the groove. It's a fast and sure way to have drop-D available in less than a second.

Comments about Hipshot GB7 Bass Extender Key Gotoh:

The tuning machine installed in a few minutes with the existing screw hole on my Warwick Thumb. It matched almost identically to the existing tuning machines. Adjusting it for use was very simple as well. This is just a well-designed and implemented product.

      Comments about Hipshot GB7 Bass Extender Key Gotoh:

      Since I've installed several models of these Hipshot D Tuners on different basses, it took less than 10 minutes total. Only one mount screw was necessary on this one. Be sure to add a dab of petroleum jelly or lubricant where the lever meets the stop.

        Comments about Hipshot GB7 Bass Extender Key Gotoh:

        Upon investigating this gadget I wondered why it costs so much. Now that I'm using it, I still think the profit margin is way high. But this thing is so good I don't care, and I'm going to put one of every bass I have, and if I ever get another bass (when, not if - let's not kid ourselves) adding a Hipshot will be the first order of business.

          Comments about Hipshot GB7 Bass Extender Key Gotoh:

          My danelectro bass had a peg that snapped. I replaced it with this hipshot bass tuner (yeah, it doesn't match this bass but I'm ok with the frankenbass look and it isn't Hipshot's fault).

          Took me about five or ten minutes and I was up and running.

          Take a moment to read the instructions on how to tune it and you'll be happy too.

          Excellent Solution

          from California

          Comments about Hipshot GB7 Bass Extender Key Gotoh:

          Excellent solution to multiple tunings. I am in a few cover projects that require a multitude of going back and forth between standard and drop d. I have a second bass rigged up to drop even lower.

                    After tossing around the idea of getting a 5-string fretless, I finally put one of these on my Aria 4-string fretless, and love it! I have the drop tuned to the low "B" to cover the lower range I need in some areas. My only complaint is the flat head screw that came with it, which barely had enough slotting to get a screwdriver to work.

                    Fantastic augmentation to my bass guitar! Simple to install, though tuning takes some getting used to. Certainly overpriced, in my opinion; but it's added quite a bit to my playing. I can detune in an instant, rather than having to take thirty seconds to match pitch by ear, or use a pedal tuner.

                              I bought this product for my Warwick Rockbass Corvette $$ 4-string bass and it drops right in to the stock tuner spot with zero modification necessary.

                              My band bounces back and forth between D Standard and drop C, and having to re-tune on stage in between songs on stage is a huge pain. The Hipshot completely solved this problem, allowing me to alternate between the two tunings in a split second.

                              I am beyond satisfied with the performance of this product and should have bought one a long time ago! Highly recommended!!

                                I've had this product installed for almost 3 weeks now on my Warwick Corvette bass and I have never been happier with an accessory. It is easy to install and easy to use. The biggest trouble I had was keeping track of the tiny screw during install but that can come with any major install. It has improved my creativity 10 fold and has introduced me into solo instrumental writing. Amazing product, great price, worth the purchase!

                                    This is the first piece of hardware I upgrade on EVERY bass I own. If you play multiple tunings in your music, this beats trying to tune down during a set, or practice.

                                      Once you learn how to uses these, they are awesome. People that i know that don't like them, never learned the proper way to tune with them. I couldn't imagine not using them
