Okay, so I am trying to find the closest parallel to the vintage Kramer tuners from Schaller. I can find three models of the M6 that should all retrofit Kramers nicely, but they seem to exist in three different lengths:

https://www.schaller-electronic.com/hp5 ... -mm-36.htm

https://www.schaller-electronic.com/hp5 ... -mm-37.htm

Any experiences? Which one would be the best fit? I doubt it matters TOO much, but heck, we aren't into Kramers because we are pragmatic and unsentimental! :bananahead

I saw no significant differences in the measurements under the technical drawing tab (Technische Zeichnung) of each one. Christian and Sergej either one can chime in.

:yikes help.

JK. The tech drawings all show the 19.7 mm version. That explains why there´s no difference when you put them side by side shrug .

The number indicates the length of shaft from the underside of the headstock to the string-hole (is that even a correct word scratch_head ?).

Just measured two of my Imps with a caliper and both have the 23.7 mm version. I´d say the different heights are due to different headstock measures. Either way, you should be on the safe side with the 23.7 model.

Hope that helps.

Not sure, but since they make them staggered, I guess those are the three sizes available. If you want to be sure they'll fit, just get the longest version.

If you have a thick headstock, the short one might be too short.

D'oh. Makes sense. Replacement tuners for the staggered sets. Didn´t think about the most simple explanation shrug .
