You haven't provided a link to see them. Mya-Moe installs Schertler tuners on their slotted headstock instruments. Here is a link to a source for ukulele tuners:

Schertlers are high quality tuners. The Grovers at Stew-Mac are pretty decent for their lower cost.

If you are talking about putting them on a solid headstock, I think they are a little big and would look out of proportion. I have them on my Eastman Pagelli archtop guitar, they are GREAT tuners, again, I think too large for a Tenor ukulele.

I don't know if those are the same size Schertlers that Mya-Moe puts on their slotted headstock ukuleles. The ones at Stew-Mac are for classical guitars and like jimmybookout said, they would probably be out of proportion on a ukulele. The Schertler website says that they make them for classical and steel string slot head guitars but doesn't mention ukuleles. You might send Gordon at Mya-Moe an EMail and ask him if the ones he uses are for ukuleles or if he is using the ones for classical guitars.

Those are the Schertler steel string guitar slot head tuners. I think they look a little large for an ukulele but just one person's opinion. They are great tuners, however.

What is the bore of the hole ? Thickness of the open slot? Outside rail thickness? I have some nice double tuners, so if they would fit your application, I would send you some pictures with meaurements, and if you would pay the 5.35 for the priority shipping box, I would send them to you. I replaced them with PEGHEDS which have a long nose for a rest in the center bar www.Pegheds.net

Tuning?

Why?
