    I've only used Sperzel locking tuners on my Strat and I recommend them highly. String changes are pretty quick and they seem to stay put once the strings are stretched and settled. 

    I imagine that just about any manufacturer of tuners makes a locking variety. 

    Also, congrats on the bloodless string change!

    Thank you!  I'm still a bit amazed  :lol:

    I changed the strings on my Strat yesterday. It took about 7 minutes. No blood, no swearing.

    How about this: I harpooned an eyeball with the high E but it didn't bleed and I just screamed, but didn't swear.

    Better?

    Does anyone use a strobe tuner? I bought a couple pedal tuners from Sonic Research a number of years ago. They are extremely accurate and built solid with a small footprint. 

    At the time, they cost about  $120.00. 

    Thats what I use too, the stompbox version. Love it. Always used to use a separate, more accurate tuner for setups, but TurboTuner is plenty accurate.
