I just took delivery of a nice little P-09RW, my first Larrivee, bought from this forum (thanks!). While there seems to be quite a bit of discussion about the quality of the ping tuners, I have decided to change mine for machines that are of better quality (I find the pings have quite a few "slack points" compared to my martins & schallers). Any suggestions from players who have already done this? I assume the machines are the same standard size? Thanks

I would assume that they are mini's.  I believe that the best drop in swap-out tuners are the Schaller mini's.  I used the Gotoh regulars for my LV-10, and the Schaller mini's for my L-10 twelve string.  It's a really easy swap out.  I have an older Larrivee dread, and the pings on it do not have the offset screw hole, so I can't find replacement tuners that wouldn't require drilling a new hole.  But, if your Larrivee if fairly new, you should be OK.

Thanks, sent larrivee an inquiry today, they replied with, "sorry, maybe check the larrivee forum" ! I don't want to drill new holes, so I'll keep trying to find a drop-in compatible model.

Could you post a picture of your pings?

If you have the old style, these will work.  I put them on an older Larrivee 12 string, and they were a drop in switch, and they are about as good of tuners as you can get.  You can also get just about any button style you want.

You are correct, those tuners should be a drop in.
You stated in your previous post that you used Gotohs?

I have 2 Larrivee 12'ers.  An older maple and a new Braz (the Bride).  I used the Schaller mini's on the older one to replace the pings (drop-in) and I had the Gotohs installed when the Bride was made.  Sorry about the confusion...I guess I misstated.....a senior moment.  I did replace a set of regular sized pings (newer) with the Gotoh 510's and that was a direct swap out.  Things do get muddled at times. wacko
