Tuners - Ratio by Graphtech, Locking, Oval, 6-in-line, Chrome
The PRL-8731 are a right-handed set of Locking RATIO® Calibrated Machine Heads for electric guitars that use 6-in-line tuners. This set has oval style knobs. The tuners have a two pin casing that can be used as is, or with our Patented InvisoMatch Mounting Plates. 4 different sets of InvisoMatch mounting plates in brushed aluminum are included to make installation on most guitars fast and accurate by using your existing screw mounting holes. RATIO® is Graphtech’s patented gear technology. RATIO® Calibrated Machine Heads incorporate different string gauges into the tuning equation.
  • From Low E to High E 39:1, 24:1, 20:1, 35:1, 20:1, 12:1.

Graphtech balanced the gear ratios to each string simplifying the tuning process. With RATIO®, a half turn is a semitone. Every string reacts the same to any tuning adjustment.

Comparison Standard Nut Zero Glide Open String Tone Absorbs energy. Fret reflects energy, making the open strings more vibrant. Tuning Friction causes string binding. 93% less surface area. More accurate tuning. String Bend/Whammy Bar Whammy bars and string bends cause the strings to bind in the nut and not return to pitch Reduces string binding and "returns to zero" after every tug of the whammy bar or bend Intonation Large pitch deviation in early frets. (See intonation graph below) Minimal pitch deviation in early frets.
