And I allow myself to write a few words.
The fact that I needed a set of tuners combined color, chrome / black. I spoke to many well-known manufacturers, Japanese, German and American. Some advised to buy two sets and assemble one I needed. Some do not pay attention to my request. Only from Hipshot answer came immediately: " We'll do a set for you, for the price of black."
So I do not agree with Mr. Chris Bradshaw. I think customer service in Hipshot, at a high level.
I got tuners in 10 days. Workmanship is great. Indeed UltraLight!
Thank you, Hipshot!

I recently purchased the HB6Y-3/8 in gold, to replace the stock tuners on my Schecter Stiletto Custom-5 string bass. The stock tuners are absolute garbage, so when two of them broke at once, I decided to upgrade the damn things. These are the best after-market tuning keys one can buy, and now that they are installed, I am quite happy I bought them. Hipshot's customer service left something to be desired, at first, but they eventually returned my emails and helped me with exchanging the tuning key for the right size. Now that I'm all set up, I'm very happy. Hipshot makes the best hardware, bar none!!!

The best Bass Tuners on the market, bar none! I have full sets of HB6C Ultralite Cloverleafs on my Mike Lull Modern 4-string, fretted & fretless Fender Jazz 24s, and a set of HB6Y Y-Keys on my Mike Lull Modern 5-string.

...all of the above also have Hipshot's classic Ultralite Bass Xtenders on their lowest strings: 3 HE6C Cloverleaf Bass Xtenders on the E-strings of the Mike Lull Modern 4 and Fender Jazz 24s, & HE6Y Y-Key Xtender on the Low-B of the Mike Lull Modern 5. I'm also (slowly) swapping out the stock tuners with HB6Y Ultralite Y-Keys & HE6Y Bass Xtenders on my 4 Custom Euro Bolt-On Spector Basses.

My Lakland 55-02 came with the HB6C-1/2" Ultralite tuners and they are precise and stable. That made it easy to decide to use them on my G&L JB-2 Tribute. I removed 7.2 ounces (!) from my JB-2 headstock by using the HB6Y-3/8" Ultralites. That's a good thing.

Use them on my Peavey Cirrus Maple 6 string bass. The bass now has that "tuned at the factory" stability, even using a gig bag. Love these tuners, and am recommending them to a friend who has a similar bass with a need to replace tuners.
