Jake Haldenwang- I have been using Hipshot Grip-Lock open gear Guitar Tuning Machines and Tremolo Guitar Bridge on my Fender Stratocasters for almost 6 years. I'm not easy on those guitars and have had zero problems with anything. Hipshot products perform flawlessly time after time. Regardless of how aggressively I bend or work the Tremolo bar, the tuning always returns to the neutral position. The strings sit comfortably in the saddles while I tug and bend the tremolo bar with the superior confidence that my guitar will stay in tune. The tuners are an absolute breeze when I have to change strings on the fly. Hipshot Products stand up to the road wear and the support I receive from the factory is second to none. It brings me great comfort knowing I'm covered by this amazing company of fine precision engineering. Photo Credit: Chris Austin Photography Jake Haldenwang-Lead Guitar and Vocals for Halden Vang-

There is only one brand of bass guitar tuning machines that I use when I want to replace the current tuning machines on a bass. That brand without a doubt is Hipshot! I first put an E string Bass Xtender on a four string bass back in the mid 80’s. I have been sold on these tuning machines ever since. Now I buy cheaper basses and then enhance them the way I like. It’s always been Hipshot tuning machines that I put on them. I also put a Hipshot A-Style Bridge on the last bass that I enhanced. You can’t lose using Hipshot Products!

"The Tremolo Guitar Bridge and the Grip-Lock Closed Guitar Tuner from Hipshot made the difference on my APS Guitar "GCS" Signature. The tuning is perfect, even after an overuse of their fantastic whammy bar. I'm very proud to have such a great products on my guitar. I love Hipshot Products!!"

"The Free Range Extender is a game changer for me. I detune my low E string on my upright bass a lot, especially with the Jerry Douglas band. Before I installed the Extender on my bass we had to adjust our set lists so that I had time to tune depending on the key of the next song. Not any more! One flick of the switch, a quick glance at my pedal tuner just to double check, and we're off to the races. I've also noticed that the other strings don't go sharp like they do when I crank my E string down manually. I can even drop the E down in the middle of the song, and move it back if I like. Truly this is a practical and efficient solution to a problem I've endured for years. A brilliantly simple feat of engineering that translates into an enhanced musical experience for me, my bandmates, and hopefully the audience as well. Thanks Hipshot!!"

"I've been using Hipshot String Xtenders on my two main stage guitars for almost 10 years now, and I can confidently say that they've never let me down, despite being put through their paces in countless gigs during that period. When you're at the sharp end of the music business, playing on multiple-band bills, where you don't have the luxury of a long sound check, is par for the course. The bands I've played in usually have to get on stage quickly, with a minimum of fuss, which just about leaves time to check my guitar's in tune, and then go for it. I have to change between standard and drop-D tuning several times for different songs in the set, and my Hipshot String Xtenders have never let me down with tuning problems. The low E string has stayed in tune, even playing in pubs and clubs where the room temperature is very high. They've also proven to be a very useful songwriting tool, because they give me the option to try a riff or chord progression in both standard and drop tuning to see which works best, literally with the flick of a switch. They're also great for transposing riffs and solos from standard tuning to drop tuning, and vice versa,  because you can work out the parts in standard tuning, check the frets you need to play, and work back and forth between the two tunings very easily. I recommend them without any reservations." - Rich Davenport, Guitar / Vocals, The Blackmail Snaps

"l absolutely love the Hipshot BT7 I have on my Fender Jazz Bass.  I have to switch from standard to Drop D several times in our set list and with the Hipshot I can do that with a flip of a switch.  No more grouping Drop D songs together to avoid long tuning pauses.  Everyone should have one of these."

"I have been a fan of Hipshot products for years.  I love my four string bass and thanks to my Bass Xtender, I don't need a five string.  D-tuners are a great tool for the working musician. Hipshot, as always, is making history!" - Jaime David Vazquez(JDV)
