  • A not so secret weapon of elite bass players since 1982, the Xtender allows you to instantly drop the tuning of your low string and then back again with the flip of a lever. The BT1 is a direct replacement for the Schaller¬ģ BM tuner traditionally featured on MusicMan¬ģ and G&L¬ģ basses. Many independent custom builders choose this tuner as well.

    Drop a Major 2nd (E-D) and if your strings have standard thickness cores, you can go as low as a 4th. (E-B)

    Robust stamped and machined steel construction.

    27:1 tuning ratio.

    Fits 11/16" (17.5mm) headstock holes.

    Adjustable tension nylon bearing system.

    Stainless steel key prevents tarnishing and rust where you touch the tuner the most.

    Mounting hardware included.

    Available in Shiny Nickel.

    WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including nickel compounds, which are known to the State of California to cause cancer. For more information go to // Read Hipshot's side of the story.

It Works!!

Hipshot Bass Extender

I ordered a Hipshot extender for my PRS SE bass. It arrived quickly, and was relatively easy to install with just a screwdriver and pliers. Adjusting it to make sure the drop D was in tune is simple also, and Hipshot has videos available to help. All in all, a solid product that I look forward to using in public some day soon!
