Planet Waves introduces new Auto-Trim Tuning Machines, a Ned Steinberger design. The Auto-Trim Tuning Machines' patent-pending design automatically cuts off excess string while the guitarist tunes up, so extra cutting tools are no longer required! An individual string clamp holds the string tightly in the tuner, so there's no need for multiple wraps around the tuning post, and a precision 18:1 gear ratio provides smooth, exact tuning, while virtually eliminating backlash and slippage.
The rugged, die-cast outer casing houses precision 18:1 bevel and worm gears, a string clamp and a hardened steel wire cutter. Restringing has never been easier: simply insert the string, tighten the clamp and tune up. The Auto-Trim Tuning Machine does the rest. than it's ever been," says Planet Waves Brand Manager Patrick Zerbo. "The design is ingenious and once guitarists try them, they will never go back to the old-style tuners. Why carry extra cutting tools around when the Auto-Trim Tuning Machines will do everything for you, quicker and easier?"
