    I can't Reply with Quote to EDW, but I just ordered a set of Ratio tuners from Pohako Ukulele. They offer a nice selection of tuners - geared and direct.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Very honest description from the seller saying they look cheap. Manages expectations and minimizes returns I suppose.

    I think they would look fine on many instruments, especially for folks who want an inexpensive light weight replacement for friction tuners on a stock instrument. On a higher end or custom instrument they would probably look a little low budget. I suppose one could consider- who is looking at the back of the headstock while you are playing?

    They're working on a "high class" tuner for "high class" ukes.

    Oh, I'm sure they do. It's just surprising to see a description that hasn't been spun by the marketing department. "futuristic, jet-black, space-age plastic! Textured for superior grip!"
