I have 2 Ohana Ukes (SK-21 & 38) that came with Gotoh friction tuners.

I would like to replace them with Grover 6W friction tuners.

Has anyone done this? Is it a drop in or is there more involved?

Hi, Vic! I always enjoy your blog especially your baritone reviews.

Grover 6W's bush diameter (hole size) is 8.27mm, according to this site. http://www.gakkicenter.com/SHOP/00734-00060335.html
Just remove your Gotoh friction tuner and check yourself.

Vic, why? I've used both and there's really no difference that I could tell. I really like the Gotoh, arms think the off white ones are better looking than black Grovers.

I'd really like to put whatever tuners Koaloha uses on them. They are smooth as silk but I am not 100% sure what brand they are. Not sure if they sell them separately.
