    All four of my ukuleles have UPT tuners. Two of them came with the UPT tuners (Blackbird Clara & aNueNue Moon Bird), and two I had changed by my local shop (KoAlohas). I like them a lot, for looks & function.

    I installed two sets of the Tune-a-Lele. One on a soprano and the other set on a tenor. I like them enormously though I find them a tad ugly when looked at from the rear of the headstock. However they work really well and were easy to install. Since they are half the price of the Gotoh upts they are a great option.

    I prefer the looks of UPT's over the Ratio tuners, but I would like to eventually install a set of Ratios on my Ohana SK-25S to try them out.
    Ukuleles:
    1960's Martin Style-0
    LoPrinzi Concert (Redwood & Mahogany)
    Fred Shields Style-0 Replica
    Kala Elite 1MHG-S
    Ohana SK-25S
    Kala Elite 1KOA-T << Letting this one go soon. PM if interested.

    Are they available to order yet?
