Hi,

I'm still studying my upcoming ukulele project. Since my parent are going to USA next month, it's time for me to order some parts (half price compared to here :) ).

About the tuners, I thing I'm going for grover : is there any possibility to consider in addition to the $10,56 stewmac ones ?

Regards,
John.

I like very much the gotoh sealed tuners on my guitar, and I think that the "mini 501" would be as good as them, but $70 is a bit overpriced (I have about $200 budget to build my first uke, spending 1/3 of the price on the tuner was not my first idea). There are also the $40 open grover that are available on ebay, I wishi I could compare them wish the $10 stewmac before I order :)

thx,
John.

The open geared Grovers are nice and many people prefer the open geared retro look. Compared to the Goth 501 closed geared, they are much lighter. The lighter weight might affect the sustain a tiny bit but it may not be noticeable. No matter what you get, if ordered from a catalog, make sure they are for ukulele.
