Best Acoustic & Classical Guitar Tuning Keys in 2020



Mr.Power Classical Guitar Tuners Machine Heads 3+3 Set Tuning Keys Machine Pegs(Black Button) Review:


Dropped right into my Córdoba C5-CE. Screw holes mostly lined up except for the top screw. No problem, the tiny wood screw easily self tapped. The tuning keys seemed a little loose so I gave a little turn of the Phillips screw on each of them. Otherwise they turn smoothly and hold tune. They instantly gave my guitar a more sophisticated, expensive look!



Cigar Box Guitar Parts: Shane Speal Signature 3-String CBG Tuners Review:


I have used these on 9 CBG builds. They hold a tune nicely. Usually for your session they stick, perhaps slightly out after sitting. But for the price, wow. I think I had one tuner out of those that had issues with too much pressure not being able to tune the string up. I’m still using them considering what a price jump it is to the next level.



Metallor 3 on a Plank Guitar Tuning Pegs Gold Plated Machine Heads Tuning Keys Tuners Single Hole for Classical Guitar 3L 3R. (G326) Review:


Had a CN60 Fender nylon string guitar, where the plastic handle of the tuning pegs are prone to crumbling off. bought this not because I thought it would drop in replace the assembly but because the gearing looked the same and the peg handles looked sturdy/ I was right on both counts the gearing was a match for both the newer fender and my 40 year old Yamaha G50a. was able to exchange a peg from this set to the fender in a few minutes with minimal difficulty and it worked perfectly. Now have 5 more replacements as needed



YMC TP20 Series 6 Pieces Guitar Parts 3 Left 3 Right Machine Heads Knobs Guitar String Tuning Pegs Machine Head Tuners for Electric or Acoustic Guitar With 2pcs Strap Locks,Chrome Review:


I first ordered a set of these that we're colored black (I wanted chrome) because the pictures showed the back mounting hole at a 90 degree angle, which is tough to find with inexpensive tuners. Well, they arrived and were identical to the chrome ones; no 90 degree mounting hole. I was disappointed and contacted the seller, whom prompty responded, explaining that they'd used a different distributor for the black ones not realizing the product wasn't the same as the picture, and offered a full refund for the inconvenience, with no need to return them. Great customer service, in my opinion.

Since I wanted the chrome ones to begin with I went ahead and ordered a new set, which I received quickly. I had to drill some new mounting holes in the back of the headstock of my Epiphone SG Special to make it work, as the previous holes were not quite lined up correctly. I'd already reamed the main tuner holes to 10mm as would be needed to make the guitar have standard sized tuner holes. These tuners installed easily and accurately, and look very nice on this guitar.

I then put on some new strings. I could immediately tell that these new tuners we're drastically better than the stock ones that came on this guitar (which were awful). Got it all tuned up, stretched the strings out, tuned again then played. Wow!!! The guitar stays in tune a million times better than it used to. I'm now finding myself playing this guitar way more often and enjoying it like I never have before.

I was not expecting these inexpensive tuners to actually be a real upgrade, but they really are. I'll update this review if anything goes wrong, since I've only had them a short time, but so far I'm incredibly impressed. I'm thinking I may install my extra set on an old acoustic that's been in my garage for awhile, see if it'll bring new life to that as well.

Vangoa 3L3R 6 Pieces Guitar String Tuning Pegs Tuner Machine Heads Knobs Tuning Keys for Acoustic or Electric Guitar, Chrome(Type A) Review:


Tuners seem to be almost as expected. It's not completely chrome all over, it has the white area on the back. I guess you can tell that in the picture but only now after I know it is there. That doesn't change the way the tuners operate, but to me cheapens the look I was wanting. Also, the baggie it was packaged in was torn and a lot of the parts were strewn inside the envelope.



YMC Chrome-Tuning-Peg-Round220-3L3R 6 Pieces 3L3R Semiclosed Guitar Tuning Pegs Tuners Machine Heads Review:


These are not the greatest tuners but they do the job. I recently restored and repaired in old ibanez Acoustic guitar. The tuners were broken so I decided to replace them along with a neck repair some re gluing of the bracing and some cosmetic changes. Like I said they are not great tuners but they do the job. the ratio is much slower when tightening the strings than the originals but sometimes that comes in handy when trying to fine tune a problematic string or a nut that sticks. They look great and they function adequately so, for the price they can't be beat. I would definitely purchase them again if I was doing the same kind of project but only for a lower end guitar. I would not recommend these as a replacement for Grover's or whatever originals you may have unless you're just looking for tuners that work. So far it's been a little over a month and I haven't had any problems with them. I noticed that some of the reviews said that they fell apart or that they came broken... I did not experience any of that .



Canomo 6 Pieces Sealed Guitar String Tuning Pegs Keys 3 Left 3 Right Guitar Machine Heads Knobs With Strap Button Locks, Picks and Guitar String Winder for Electric or Acoustic Guitar(Black) Review:


I bought a Korean made Mitchell Guitar in 1988 for a little over $100. It was what you would expect for $100 guitar, but lately it began to frustrate me because it wouldn't stay in tune over a single practice session.
These tuning pegs have allowed the guitar to stay in tune. For the $10 or whatever I paid for them, they are an incredible value. Similar tuning pegs from a guitar shop are $45 or more. Hardly a cost effective repair in my case.
I did a bit of a hack job on the installation. I would highly recommend getting a wood reamer unless your using these as a direct replacement.
