Anyone out there that may be interested in trading (or selling) a set of four standard Keith tuners for a new set of nickel Rickard Cyclones? Wanted to check before I ordered a new set of Keiths and put the Rickards up for sale, Thanks!

You don't like them either huh? They work great and are smooth as butter, but also as slow as smoke off crap. I ain't got that much time and I don't need to be "that" in tune. I'll stick with my 2:1's. After all, I've played 50 years and ain't never been in tune anyway. ;)

Hey Robby!

Not so much... I bought them to try based strictly on the potential for improved stability of tuning per others reviews, and could have cared less about "smoothness" (which they are), and the ratio (which basically like yourself, I'm annoyed by). They are great tuners for somebody, just not my preference.

When I came to 4370-5, Jim had had Keith standands on it, and wow do they hold tune!! Lappin always used those, but me being cheap... well, always went with Gotohs. But I HATE fighting tuning on stage, so cuss, stomp, and spit, I just ordered a set for 312-8 (the 75 is down for fingerboard work/refret).

Hope you're doing well buddy!
