Need new machine heads (below 100 bucks) 

I need new machine heads for my sanchis and came across this site and these (I assume these are DerJung)

- are these ok for the price ?

- I never had machine heads with bearing alluminium shafts. are these good?

- any other alternatives when it comes to best bang for the buck (around or below $100), I heard DerJung can offer the most for the money, but that was couple years ago, not sure if things changed the last couple years and if there are other companies which are "go to" now or whatever. I am in Germany

I have had some even cheaper DerJung that worked very well. Accurate with no slack in the mechanism but they didn't have the bearing roller.

I don't have experience with Derjung bearing rollers. But I use (more expensive) Gotoh with bearing rollers. I find bearing rollers smoother to tune, easier to be accurate with small precision adjustment. Plus the aluminium shaft doesn't get worn by the strings like plastic can.

I've had good experience buying from Madinter. They have a good selection of Dejung (and others) at good prices. E.g.

Thanks for your input. Yeah madinter is slightly better when it comes to prices. I think I will go with the most expensive DJ with bearing, which is still "only" 60 Euros, let's see how they are

I put a medium level DerJung on my go to outdoor guitar, a Yamaha "flamenco". They are accurate and ultra smooth, more so than the Sloanes that I have on other guitars.
