Sweet Treat: April Lollipop Clearout!

Originally we were only able to get FB30 sets in nickel with lollipop keys as a special order item, but now FB30 + lollipop keys are a standard Gotoh catalog item. That means two things: there are more options when buying them and we are clearing out our current inventory!

This product ships out from two locations: Canada and Japan. If you are in Canada or the USA it's best to have the product shipped from Canada by Xpresspost or DHL Express) Other nations are best served by Japan Post EMS.

This sale is no longer in effect. You can find Gotoh FB30LP tuners with many more exciting new options here.

FB30 Re-Engineered Bass Tuning Keys

Gotoh have come out with a fantastic new take on a classic design. The FB3 bass tuning keys have been replaced with the updated FB30 model. It still has a vintage appearance but the gear mechanism has been re-engineered for improved performance.

Updated bearing design
Most designs have bearings attached to the plate in a way that can cause the worm screw to misalign with the worm wheel. Gotoh's updated FB30 uses a new bearing structure that maintains concentricity and increases durability.
Friction-free ring
Gotoh have added a resin ring where the worm gear meets the bearing to further reduce friction.
Nickel finish
Many bass tuning machines are chrome rather than nickel. Gotoh's FB30-LP is available in a fine nickel finish for that classic look.

Bold as Brass

There have been golden eras for acoustic guitars and electric guitars. At those times the tuning machines generally had great tonal qualities but less than stellar functionality. Gotoh are known for the exceptional quality of their 510 series tuning machines, so we asked them create a special series of tuners with brass string posts to put some of that vintage essence back in with the smooth action of the modern machine.

It's a new golden age. Now you can have the vintage tonal quality of brass string posts without having to sacrifice functional quality!

GOTOH® SD510 Closed-Back in Antique Gold

GOTOH's 510 series goes far beyond just the SG sealed-gear tuners. The 510 designation is a sign of GOTOH's highest achievement in all its categories.

The closed-back vintage-style tuners are very popular for Gibson guitars and similar. The 510 models not only add technical advantages like the smooth and durable Lubri-Plate but also the satin X-Finish, known as "antique".

If you have a classic old Gibson that wants a new set of tuners but you don't want them to look too new, you can't do better than a GOTOH SD510 in antique gold with mint green keystone buttons! A classic look for a classic instrument, with all of the advantages of modern technology.
