Overview

These precision-designed tuning machine with built-in hardened steel string cutters and individual string clamps are real time-savers. The patent-pending design cuts excess string while you tune, eliminating the need for extra tools. Individual string clamp securely holds string in tuner, so there is no need for multiple wraps around the tuning post. Rugged die-cast outer casing houses precision-machined 18:1 bevel and worm gears, providing smooth, exact tuning, while virtually eliminating backlash and slippage. The string clamp and cutting mechanism makes the chore of restringing a snap.

These things are just nifty. These were a direct replacement for my strat and it has helped my tuning stability so I can use the trem frequently. I could've went for schaller or sperzel locking tuners but decided to go for these and I don't regret it. These tuners don't require making those wraps around the peg, AND it cuts the leftover string for you. What more can you ask for?

I have used these tuners for years, and they do work well, and hold tune very well "only" after being "extremely" careful when stretching the strings during tuning. After getting the strings locked in, cut off and initially in tune, if you remotely try to stretch/bend the strings and then retune unless you hold the string around the 1st fret to help secure the string, it pops out "every" time. I just used the old hold it at the first fret all these years, but now I'm getting very aggrevated that I am ruining strings because they keep popping out and are useless when they are brand new strings. Sure they hold tune outstandingly after all the strings are all stretched out but getting to that point is about pointless with these things. Cheap stock tuners off a $100 guitar at least hold the strings while bending/stretching and if your gotta tune between songs, then tune between songs. It's easier than breaking the strings before they ever get in tune.

      Great tuning machines. I have these on two guitars now and they work well. They keep the guitar in tune as well as the Grovers and Schalers, yet they have the unique feature that they clip your strings. As you tune, a blade clips the string internally so there is ZERO string clippings that pokes your finger and catch on fabric. Makes stringing cleaner and easier. Love 'em!

        Upgraded two inexpensive guitars with chrome & black machines. Required slight increase in hole dia. to fit. Better ratio = easy tuning. Locking = quick string change & no more multiple wraps which increase tuning stability. Auto-trim = no side cutters in every guitar case. I have had no problems with 9 & 10 ga. strings slipping out.

            Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Auto Trim Tuning Machines 6 In-Line:

            I didn't think simply changing the tuners on my guitar could make such a massive difference, when in reality this was one of the best upgrades I've ever performed on my guitar, and it's been modified A LOT. After doing a string change for a customer who had these tuners on their guitar, I figured that it would be nice to get myself a set because I loved the idea of changing strings perfectly every time with no tools required. What I wasn't expecting was the rock-solid tuning stability that came with it. I can play my guitar for hours, go crazy with the tremolo, bend to the heavens and generally perform like a madman, then put the guitar down, walk away for a week, pick it up and play again knowing that it will STILL be in tune. Just make sure you give your strings a good stretching first. It's not my fault if you put new strings on and don't stretch them and get mad when they're flat a few minutes later.

            In response to people who have said that they had a failure in the locking mechanism, I'm just going to assume they didn't tighten the locks enough. Having read those reviews before buying, I made sure to screw those strings down like a champ. Then I tested them by pulling the strings almost half a foot away from the neck. Not a problem in the world. (Disclaimer, you might break your string doing that, I was simply testing the grip of the tuners.)

            I am literally going to put these on every guitar I own (except vintage ones for value reasons).

            They stay in tune, but the strings are not always cutoff, even with the little ball facing the top of the headstock. Sometimes it is extremely difficult to start the string. I don't think I will purchase any more,
            I will continue to purchase the Sperzel or the Gotoh. The only thing I do like is the 18 to 1 ratio.

                        I've bought 2 of these. I put a 3 on a side set on my Godin and they are amazing! Holds tune great! Work exactly like advertized. Way better than any other brand, and I've tried them all...
                        I put a set of 6 in a line on a Mexican Strat ant they didn't hold tune quite as well, but still work as good as any other brand I've tried. I guess they've got some quality control issues at the factory...

                        I installed these on two of my three guitars, and after a few months of having them on I left the country for 2 years. Well, these babies stayed in perfect tune. When I pulled the guitars out of their cases again I plugged them into the tuner to tune them, and they hadn't moved even half a semi-tone, even the one with the tremolo bridge (not double locking). I then grabbed my guitar that didn't have them installed and it was severely out of tune (by about 2 1/2 steps [5 semitones]). I highly recommend getting these on any guitar, NOT just for tremolo. They are amazing. The best bonus is the auto-trim feature (which is what attracted me to them in the first place). It is a HUGE time saver, and you don't have to worry about the strings slipping while installing new ones in. Just make sure you leave at least one half a rotation (of the peg) of string to go off of after it is trimmed, and you will be fine. Like everything else, you just have to know how to use in order for it to work.
