Hipshot Bass Xtender GB7
By Pete Wood from on 10/13/2016
 
I've been keen to install a D-tuner (or Xtender) on this bass since I bought it. It's a budget build so I couldn't justify it until one of the tuners (cheap GB7 knockoffs) started mucking up. I could have fixed it with a new washer, but I put a D-tuner instead. Installing it was as easy as installing the stock tuner. So it took literally 10 min to install. I wish I'd done it sooner because it fits so well and is such a useful piece of kit. The only negative thing I notice was the sort of 'grinding' feel on the two contact surface as you switch the lever up or down. I've not noticed this before on the D-tuner I had on another bass. I've regreased the cam on the lever and the contact patch it hit, but the action still feels rough. I'm hoping it will improve once I've worn it in a little. Otherwise, I'd fit them to every 4 string I own. I also want to give BBG props for EXCELLENT prices and free shipping to Australia. Thanks a lot guys.

I absolutely love my Hipshot BASS extender; my first was on a used bass I had bought at a local guitar shop. Thought "Hmmm, now there is something that will just fail and need replacing". Little did I know I would instantly fall in love with it and then install 3 more on a few of my other most favored basses. I know we all say "drop tuning takes no time. Strike an open D and tune to it. Whola, done". Well, yes but in actuality no... It takes more time, if rushed or too noisy in the pub your playing you may not even get in tune! Time yourself drop tuning by hand/ear, takes more effort then we think. Well, all you do is flip the lever on this lil hunny and there you are. Good to go and in tune in the time it takes you to get your hand to the tuning key. WELL worth the money and favor the basses that have the bass extender over the ones that dont.

Added this my German Warick Corvette. I'd used drop tuners before, but never owned one. Installation was a breeze, the instructions were very clear. Fits perfectly. Couldn't be happier.

Works and fits perfectly on my Gibson Les Paul bass. About £18.00 of import duty to pay at Post Office on shipping to uk.

GB7 rules!!!

Yes, indeed, it works as expected. Fits perfectly in my Ibanez SRX-360, and D-tunes, after a little brico, down to D right in the point it has to.
Thinkig about a black one for my Epiphone EBM custom 4.

Bass D-Tuner
By Tony O'Brien from on 1/8/2014
 
Don't know why I didn't buy one earlier! Great addition to my bass. I was a little surprised that the end of the adjustment screw only sits on the head of the lever fulcrum screw, would have expected a flat plate or something (hence 4 stars) but other than that, very happy.
