King Loudness's review"Best tuners on the market today"

Sperzel Guitar Trimlok
The Sperzel Trim-Lok tuner is my favourite tuner that is currently on the market. I have compared it to Kluson, TonePros, Grover (regular and locking) and Schaller locking just to name a few. They are the tuner I always request on a guitar if I'm having it built to order as I love the ease of use as well as the good clean look that they offer. They're really well designed and eliminate much of the tedious work in stringing guitars. Instead of leaving a certain amount of slack on the string and then trying to get a clean number of windings (I usually shoot for five or six). Often times using typical tuners, my hands will slip and the winds will end up overlapping and looking like a total mess which will also kill tuning stability. With the Sperzels you basically just pull the string through the tuner (making sure the string pull is as perfectly straight as possible) and once you pull it through... just pull it taut and then bend the string at a right angle. Then tighten the thumbwheel on the back and tune the string to pitch. It only takes about half a turn and doesn't require a string winder and endless attempts to get it right. I can string a whole guitar with Sperzels in about 2 minutes if I work quickly... it's like working in NASCAR... gotta be fast and quick and get back to the races.

They're a little bit difficult to install (hence why the rating's not a perfect 10) and do require some drilling. I'd like to see them put out a tuner that would fit a Les Paul or other Gibson without drilling and use the same TrimLok technology as the regular tuner. For $80 per set, they're a bargain, plus they're available in a bunch of colours from the standard to the extreme.

I use self mcaniques Sperzel blocks for two years. These models are simply the best I've had the opportunity to test. I have a possible strat modified les paul and a Japanese. The tuning is much better than the original MODELS (fender and ibanez), more editing is a breeze! MODELS of solid, practical, in a nutshell: IDAL! Can be a bit expensive for mcaniques but hey, it's an investment for the future ..

I mounted my 3422 MODEL cort 115
Compared to the original mcaniques, no comment
Change of rope, super fast
The guitar does not practically dsaccorde
When one turns, one feels that there is no game, it's solid
No problem for a good ten years
I would do this choice

I own Sperzel ten years, I mounted my Epiphone Les Paul Custom.
And I never had any problems with elles.une good view of the agreement, a déssacordage almost non-existent, never more than half a tone on all strings.
It's really nickel as a system, because when you had a scratch live and unfortunately you loose a rope.
Here you are like a truffle, and you could not change the rope quickly, hello damage.
And here I speak from experience because I'm already in this situation before to own mechanical self-locking.
Overall, I think what is much better than I Schaller has also an other guitar.
And it's an almost obligatory purchase when invested in a new guitar.
Besides, I do not understand why all the guitar makers do not ride the mechanical self-locking of origin. Ca would be so much easier.
The only catch is the price at the time of francs, I have paid 600 francs or 90 euro now.

I possde a Yamaha Pacifica 812 V, which is fitted with behind these mcaniques, feedback, I play the guitar about 5 hours a day, serving me well for my vibrato, and I r gives my guitar about once a week ... absolutely incredible!

As one would say, all my guitars (future) will go through the Sperzel!

First of all I must say that the MCAS dsacordent NEVER .... there is not!
Then I switched on my old Fender Start Schaller simple ...
... And l. .. THE FOOT!
More sustain, yes it's true, thanks tuning, but it's like magic to transform the sound / dynamics of the game ..

I know, the mcaniques of the 70 must be much better, but as long as there Sperzel, all my stuff will go through the DIXIT

I have some on my blade SERIES I 3 years, and it works well trs, I have the "Dores"
and my guitar dsaccorde trs even with little use of vibrato, the nut Graphyte plays its role aussi.j did it mount schaller autobloq on another guitar, it works well too, but I have the Print dsaccorde it a little easier, it may be due to the guitar (gibson sg ...)
voila, actually to break them, you really shake like an ox!
I would do this choice, and this is my last word, jean.

It is a marvel! was 6 years I use and I've never had a problem, they are almost never dsaccordent and are very robust ... MUST really want to spoil the thread! Obviously but ... if we do not know use mcaniques wraps, there is no miracle ...

Hi,

2 years ago I brought up the wraps on my mcaniques Sperzel Strato.
I just understood it was what was best for my setup (and that's what I keep hearing).
In beginners, perfect ...
After 2 years:

Thread of an evening, then 2 then 3 and now 4 of 6 mcaniques!
This in normal use (no drilling).

In this case, it is either:
- No chance (of a crdible it ... but ...). 4
- The matrial utiliss are of poor quality (steel too "soft").

At least for the "high end" that fills the drawers of the maker ... is shameful.
I was screwed as I can, waiting to replace all a. .. by Schaller ...

To avoid!
