    Default Replacement tuners for an Applause UAE148 Tenor?

    I hate the color of the stock tuners. Would like pearloid white. Does anyone know a drop in replacement? I know I can probably remove the buttons, but easier just to screw on new ones. Wood mahogany ones would be nice

    They look like Gotoh tuners so you have lots of options for replacement buttons.
    Check out Stewmac for tuners and parts. LMI has a big selection too, or just do a google search

    If you still want to change the whole tuner.....take one off and measure the hole size, screw spacing, and headstock thickness. You should be able to find something that will fit. I know Stewmac has dimension info on their site for each tuner.

    Applause tuners have moulded-on buttons which cannot be easily swapped.

    If the headstock thickness is the same as that of the Applause soprano, you will have a problem that it is too thick for standard ukulele tuners and too thin for guitar tuners. Finding a drop - in replacement for Applause tuners has been a headache for me in the past.

    Looks like replacing the buttons alone are the best option. I have no problem with that.

    Think I'm going to try the Ivoroid.
