Schaller was the world's first manufacturer to develop the locking tuner and had it patented more than 20 years ago. These mini M6 locking tuners are well known as precise and durable. The thumb screw on the back drives a pin up into the string hole providing a positive lock on the string and eliminating slippage. There is no need for the standard multiple string windings around the post, so you get better tuning accuracy especially when using tremolo equipped guitars.


  • 16:1 gear ratio.
  • Weight per tuner: 1.73 oz. (49 grams).
  • Sold individually so you can get the configuration you need. If you have tuners on both sides of your peghead, then you need some left side and some right side tuners.
  • Not Compatible with Baritone strings

 

 


This SMLG tuner mounts on the Left Side
of the peghead as in this example.

Things to be aware of ...
They work well when properly adjusted. 

Make sure the adjustment screw in the center of the knob is tight. Don't assume that because the knob feels tight that the screw is adjusted to eliminate the potential back lash when they are too loose.

The locking knob on the bottom takes a lot of finger power to tighten and can be hard on your skin.

I've taken to wearing a leather work glove when tightening them to save wear and tear on my skin.

Better than Sperzels
I got these because I had a Fender rolling nut (from a thrashed Jeff Beck strat) and wanted to have the most secure tuning possible without a locking nut.  I hated Sperzels - the dead spots and the screw to tighten the string in the pegs was uncomfortable.

A student had these on his Fender Strat Plus (remember those?) and I liked 'em.  The dead spots from the Sperzels aren't there, and the knobs are comfortable.

They work very well, but it's not a perfect solution to the tuning issue.  The string will still hang at the nut, so it's not as stable as a locking nut.  That said - if you're a bit "old school" this may be a better solution.  Tuning is a breeze in typlical Schalelr fashion.
