I have a Lanikai LU11 soprano. I'd like to upgrade to better tuners as the cheap ones on it now don't stay in tune very well, but the uke sounds and plays great. Does anyone have any idea about some that might be drop in replacements? How can I tell?

I just replaced the tuners on my martin tenor with these grovers. they work great. they have the specs on their site. you need to measure your hole diameter. the bushings for the grovers need 10mm. or you may be able to use the existing bushings.
