Blind Guitars Interview 2 Weight of the Tuning Machines

 

 

There is a huge choice of aftermarket pieces. What impact can the weight of the Tuning Machines have when designing a guitar?

 

With acoustic guitars, the weight of the tuning machines has little impact on the conception of the instrument.

Unless you have a particular design (which could have a tendency to nose-dive) or try to achieve an extremely low overall weight, the few grams of difference between different makes and models of tuning machines are perfectly negligible in the design of an acoustic guitar.

 

As far as electrical guitars are concerned, the problem is different.

 

The neck is most of the time much more outside the body and it is necessary that the weight of the tuning machines does not influence the balance of the guitar.

Il existe un énorme choix de pièces aftermarket. Quelle incidence peut avoir le poids des mécaniques lors de la conception d’une guitare ?

 

En guitare acoustique, le poids des mécaniques a assez peu d’incidence sur la conception de l’instrument.

À moins d’avoir un design particulier (qui pourrait avoir tendance à piquer du nez) ou d’essayer d’atteindre un poids général extrêmement bas, les quelques grammes de différence entre les différentes marques et modèles de mécaniques sont parfaitement négligeables dans la conception d’une acoustique.

 

Pour ce qui est de l’électrique, le problème est différent.

 

Le manche est la plupart du temps beaucoup plus à l’extérieur du corps et il faut que le poids des mécaniques n’influe pas sur l’équilibre de la guitare.
