Hi,
They are a very good tuners with a simple look: you can check for technical information in their website.
They have been engineered and made in Italy and people like Ramirez factory and Gioacchino Giussani are actually mounting Exagon as well in their own models.

I contacted the manufacturer in Italy direct and received a swift reply!
Seems like Savarez is not supporting them sufficiently!

As far as I can tell, they are not distributed in the USA.

My wife has Exagon tuners on her Jean-Luc Joie. They work fine. Very smooth. Not as precise as Knut Welsch's Freewheel, but moreless as precise as the Rodgers she had on her Paco Santiago MarĂ­n (and others on guitars I tried)or the Alessi i tried on several guitars.

erictjie I am happy you are satisfied with exagon tuners. They were devoloped by luthier Mario Garrone, who is an engineer and a friend of mine. They are high end tuners. For sure same quality of Rodgers or Alessi. I tried to say so in a previous post about tuners, but nobody ever consider it. From that I clearly understood that even tuning machines, like guitars are a matter of fashion. How did you come to know them?

They (Savarez?) should do a better job with customer relations and promotion. A couple of years ago I saw Exagon tuners on the web and was very interested in trying them. I received spotty information in response to my inquiries and gave up. Maybe they're more organized now?

Well, I just phoned Mario and he was quite surprised at Savarez behavior. Anyway he said that one can easily reach him by googleing exagon tuners. They have their own site with contact information (I don't think english language is working). They should be pretty fast in replying.

internet forum is the best place to search for good info. i think they should promote exagon more . It is as good as rodger or Alessi tuners and it is nice to tune and very elegant . i really like it very much.

My (even recent) experience (mails and sendings concerning strings) is they still aren't organized at all. it's a pity because those tuners are very nice indeed.
