Plate-Style: This is a pair of plated tuning keys with each pair mounted to a heavy gauge, traditional style brass plate with ornamental edge engraving. They are 24:1 gear ratio, designed for ¾ sized basses. These are are made in Germany and include a full set of matching screws. Sold as a pair only.
There is no "standard size" for tuners, and they can vary by manufacturer - please MEASURE your bass' current machines (or holes in the pegbox) to ensure that the plated machines will fit before you order! It's also not uncommon to have to "widen" the holes to accommodate slight differences.
These should fit most, if not all, Engelhardt 3/4 size basses (and possibly some later-era Kay basses), as they are the same ones that Engelhardt installs as original equipment on their basses. (Though it is prudent to check, as Engelhardt and Kay were known for occasional variations from the norm, depending on parts availability.)
