Precise toys made in China!
Orim 18.11.2019
As a rule, I am using Planet Waves tuners on all my guitars. Yet, I had a need for locking tuners to put on cheap Squier guitar.
PW are expensive, so I bought those Harley Benton.

Really nice surprise!

PROS:
- they are smooth and accurate
- they hold properly (guitar stays in tune even with dive-bombing)
- they are incredibly affordable
- they look definitely not cheap
- they look good

CONS:
- screws feel like aluminium (good tuners, and such screws, Thomann, really?)
- there is no big brand name on them ;-)

Now - I mentioned, I am using PW tuners. Sure, on guitars worth 1000+ Euro you want expensive stuff (and PW cut string by themselves). But, if you are on budget, or you paid 100 Euro for a guitar, or you do not need fancy tuners with scissor function on them, Harley Benton Locking Tuners are really good choice.
Yes, they are made in China. But they are very well made in China. If only the mounting screws will be of better material (steel, please!), those very affordable tuners will easily compete with toys that are three times more expensive!

In one sentence: very good product from Thomann.
(One star off for quality because of those damn screws.)

Good, budget friendly tuners
MajorBlaze 30.12.2020
I bought these tuners for my Jackson JS12 Dinky, because the stock tuners were pretty crappy. They were wobbly, and some of them even started to fall apart after 2 years of moderate use.
I didn't want to spend a 100 Euros for a set of tuners, simply because it's a 150 Euro guitar.
The installation was quick, and easy, took about 20 minutes. No modifications needed, fits perfectly, even the mounting screws were spot on.
My only issue is that they are a little bit stiff, but might get better with use. I have Grovers, and Fender tuners on my other guitars, and the are wayyyy smoother, than the HBs.
A little bit of WD40 might solve this issue. Might try it on the next string change.
The tension is adjustable on the tuning pegs, just like with other brands.
They do the job. String change is much faster, than with standard tuners.
I'm not saying that I never have to tune ever, but it improved tuning stability for sure. I don't expect perfect tuning on a 150 Euro guitar anyway, even if the nut is well lubricated. Might be the headstock, and the string angle at the nut. No big deal.
All in all: if you are on a budget, and looking for a good set of tuners, try these out.

Don't use supplied screws
D-Rop20 19.05.2019
*Be warned, do not use supplied screws as they are cheap!!! *
One of the supplied screws snapped without really any force and is now lodged in my guitar meaning I cannot install a replacement machine head. So please if you buy these also buy higher quality installation screws or use the screws from your guitars original machine heads.

The machine heads themselves are ok, they make string changing a breeze and keep in tune well but I have also since found the same tuning pegs on Ebay for around 11-12 so consider buying them there.

Good for project guitars but If you own an expesive guitar and want locking tuners skip these compleately and buy Hipship Griplocks, graphtech Ratio's, Fender etc...

Pretty neat
François Arnould 17.02.2022
Installed in an Ibanez RGA45FM, the tuners are pretty much exactly the same as the standard Ibanez ones in that guitar, apart from the locking mechanism. They seem to work great so far, the locking mechanism is strong and they look great.
