Thread: String winder for Gotoh stealth tuners

  1. #1

    Default String winder for Gotoh stealth tuners

    Does anyone make a string winder with a slot smaller enough to twist the small heads on Gotoh stealth tuners? The 18:1 gear ratio is great for precision tuning, but a bit of a chore when changing strings.

    I've often thought there's a niche in the market for a tuning wand that will fit gotoh stealth pegs. In the meantime I've used foam to make the space smaller.

    Thank you. That is what I figured I would end up doing.

    I emailed the ukulele site and they made a custom peg winder with meltable plastic pellets: Polly plastics. It is on Amazon for $10.

    The Music Nomad winder works on my Gotoh Stealths without any issues. Link below, but you may be able to find it cheaper elsewhere.

    I wish more music stores or on line string suppliers would add music nomad products. I like look of this winder and I like their soundhole humidifier. I think they also have a pretty fretboard conditioner.

    I have a battery-powered winder with a + in the head. It takes both thick and thin knobs. Most of the ones shown below seem to have that + in the head.
