Testimonials

“I keep meaning to send an email and let you know that I got the prem. Indian Rosewood and was very pleased. You all at LMII have always given me great reason for trust in doing business with you. You have always treated me well and in a prompt and professional fashion. You have always helped with any problems that I might. have. Your staff is knowledgeable and professional and the materials have been great. You guys run the type of business that makes me look for things I need that I can get from you. If that doesn't work (look for things I might need in the future). Thank you for giving me a place where I can buy my materials with confidence.”

Tuning Machines

 
TUNERSSchenkGUITAR500
Tuners on a Schenk guitar
LMI offers a broad selection of tuning machines for steel string and classical guitars, as well as several for bass guitars, mandolins and banjos. The majority of these tuners are from the Schaller®and Gotoh® (Pronounced “Go-Toe”) product lines with additional hand made classical tuners from Alessi, bass guitar tuners from Hipshot™, and Grover economy machines.

GOTOH® Tuning Machines
Gotoh machines are head-to-head quality competitors with the longer established Schaller machines. Over the years, many major hand makers and factories have come to prefer them over the Schaller tuners. They are more competitively priced than the Schallers™, and this may be the deciding factor for some. The selection of classical tuners available from Gotoh is certainly broader in both quality/cost and variety, providing economy models to models used on some of the finest guitars in the world. We carry their popular 'contour' line (510) tuners, and their new line of open back tuners with brass gear wheels (made especially for LMI) are sure to please those who prefer a vintage-style tuner.

SCHALLER® Tuning Machines
Schaller is one of the first manufacturers to use a cast, sealed, and lubricated gear housing, and their machine has been copied by many. With removable and replaceable buttons, tension adjustable by tightening the knobs, and threaded hexhead bushings, Schallers are still one of the better values in a tuner.
