Don't carry the weight of the world on your shoulders! Hipshot's Ultralight Bass Tuning Machines are made of durable, precision machined aircraft-quality aluminum to lighten your load, and give you the correct instrument balance without sacrificing tuning accuracy or durability.
Heavy zinc bass tuners add unnecessary weight to your headstock, straining your neck and shoulder. It also restricts your left hand to holding up an unbalanced instrument, robbing you of the necessary freedom of motion so essential to a natural, relaxed playing technique.
Sleek and compact, easily installed on the smallest of 4, 5, 6 & Extended Range Bass headstocks.
The 3/8 diameter version fits basses with a headstock hole size of 9/16 inch. The 1/2 inch diameter version fits basses with a headstock hole size of 11/16 inch.
Bass side = Left side of headstock on a right handed bass. Treble side = Right side of headstock on a right handed bass.
All finish colors have Hipshot Logo. Lighter yet possesses full size gears and string post.
Light and well made

My only qualm with the tuners are that the hole on the front side of the headstock is the same size as the back but the tuners are smaller on the back side than they are on the front so there's a small gap there. It's not that noticeable but I still know it's there.
Overall a great set of tuners.
