Experience with Rubner machine heads? 

Hello All,

A student showed up with a set of Rubner machines that looked quite nice, though not just to my taste in appearance. They seemed to be made to the usual high German machining standards. The price for their standard Hauser style is around $75, and if you want ball bearings on the ends of the rollers it's around $125.

I've ordered a set of gold colored Hauser style, with "ivoroid" grips and rollers, which are more to my taste visually. Has anybody used Rubners and got an opinion about them?

Cheers,

Brian

I use them quite regularly, both with or without the roller bearings. I like them, they’re a quality tuner at a reasonable price.

The Rubners with the ball bearings are the only tuners I use now, other than Pegheds. They're great and reasonably priced.

For one moment, I thought the subject said rubber machine heads.

I tried changing the buttons on one set and the
button screw broke on three posts. The screws
are very thin.

Otherwise, I have sets on two guitars and
they work fine.
