+1 on Der Jung Tuners when on budget...
Music is a big continent with different landscapes and corners. Some of them I do visit frequently, some from time to time and some I know from hearsay only ...

Thanks for all the replies. I am using the word "slipping " in the following manner; I turn the tuner and it is slow to change pitch. When it finally changes, it's often to much. I alternate between loosening and tightening until it's in tune. My other guitar is mucher quicker to respond to turning, can change in tiny increments, and much less back and forth.i suppose it is possible that I tied the strings poorly,but the way I tie works fine on other guitar-strings have bee on for a month
Maybe the strings are not sliding smoothly past the nut but are catching in the notches.
