Lotmusic-3L3R Guitar Deluxe Tuning Pegs Machine Heads for Gibson Replacement
Lotmusic-3L3R Guitar Deluxe Tuning Pegs Machine Heads for Gibson Replacement
Offered by lotmusic_sz
Price: £9.78

3.0 out of 5 stars Tuning keys, 26 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got these for a Tokai Love Rock Les Paul copy as one of the tuning keys was broken and it seemed cheaper to change the whole lot than try to get one replacement. Colour is a slightly duller and darker than they original ones..but when I tried to take a photo to show the difference it doesn't quite show up. A keen eye would clock that they weren't originals. Replacing and fitting easy enough. I just re-used the screws and the round metal bit and just replaced the pegs. They are just a tiny bit shorter in length but this hasn't affected anything. They are a wee bit stiff which may ease up over time. Very simply packed in plastic bag and bubble wrap but arrived in good time

As someone who's not a big slipper fan but needs must, I couldn't find a pair I really liked that much. A lot of them are a bit too 'grandpa' for my liking. I thought I'd take a punt on these as they are as close to what I wanted. In a way picture doesn't do it justice and they look better on than the photo on the website. The brown one is a little bit darker than the pic. Size is fine. Not too snug and and not too loose and hopefully will last a good time. Wish I'd bought them earlier to stop me wasting time looking around

bought to replace our previous item which in it's wisdom(?) had a 10 year un-replacable battery in it. This one is the same -ish but has the option to change the battery. Tested it. All fine and should rouse us should there ever be a fire

I bought this for busking. I wasn't expecting a large amount but going by the reviews I thought I could take a chance. Quite pleasantly surprised. Plugged into my Roland AC Acoustic amp. The sound seems fine enough to me. My main concern was poor level of volume which means you'd have to crank it up and that's when the problems start. All fine on that count. Picks up pretty well with plenty of volume ( though the Roland amp is a pretty powerful thing in itself) The bit that goes around the back of the head is a little bit tight ( I've got a big head) and I will put it on with caution, from the back of the head and not from above as this will possibly break it. I'm going out to try it out today and see what the public think. Good product for the price.
Just a bit later add on. had a run through with my headphones in the amp. Slight clipping and overloading but not horrendous and maybe in an open area it wouldn't be that noticeable
Starting to feel a bit more comfortable on the head. It's fine at the moment and suits the purpose i bought it for

Nice guitar with a lovely finish. Plays well with a neck that's not too thick…and not too thin. I thought the sound might be a bit 'thin' but it has a good range of tones without leaning too far either way.

Not had it long. Neck slightly narrower than my Puka concert and just took minor mental adjustment. Fret board seems a bit longer and possibility of playing more up in that region but I don't generally. Nice wood and finish and the mother of pearl inlay on the neck is a nice finish.Tuning keys seem a little bit 'dinky' in comparison and hopeful won't add to any tuning issues.
Plugged in it sounds pretty good. Small unit for Volume, bass and treble on the side. Used it at a gig and sounded fine to me.
Didn't make any adjustments to the sound to get it sounding good through a Roland Mobile AC amp.The only thing that lets it down is the bag which is a bit bog standard for a uke that's been made to this standard. Bit flimsy and thin. That's about my only complaint about it.
Nice uke

Nice rich tone, Took a little while to settle in. There was a small buzz on the G but that has stopped now and I haven't had it set up properly. Have plugged it in and recorded some song in Garageband it sounded good to me. The neck is slightly wider than some acoustics and a child or someone with small hands may have a bit of trouble getting around the neck but it's fine for me. I wasn't too sure buying it because I've only heard about Oscar Schmidts but never played one and I have to say I'm very happy with it
