Testimonials

"....My friend and I have been building guitars in my high school woodworking class over the course of this school year. This will be the last order we place for this project, and I wanted to say that we have found your website, products, and customer service to be extremely useful. When my friend encountered some issues with bending the sides he purchased, he emailed your company to ask for advice, and, very quickly, received very helpful advice."

Tuning Machines

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.
