Playing at a local music festival earlier today -  we were first on. Had to clamber up a ladder on to a flatbed truck. Stood my USA P Bass in its case on the back, turned away and it fell on to the grass. Snapped one of the tuners off. B*gger. Don’t suppose anyone has a spare they’d part with? Also playing last in my proper band so had to come home for a change of guitar. Luckily the G stayed in tune.

Great excuse to get yourself a D Tuner.

Swap the E for the damaged G.

I had a very similar experience with one of my Sandbergs. I emailed them directly asking to purchase a replacement - they sent me a replacement tuner with no fuss, from Germany, free of charge.

That’s not a bad idea 

That is a very good idea, even if you’re not keen keep the drop D til you find a replacement

Great idea. Once you've got a drop D tuner you'll never go back :)
