Roadie only supports instruments equipped with guitar machine heads.

Roadie is not compatible with Bass Guitar, or any instrument equipped with wooden friction based pegs (non geared). Roadie supports geared pegs used for electric, acoustic, classic guitars, Ukulele, Banjo and Mandolin (an adapter is needed with the mandolin - please request at

If your instrument is compatible with Roadie, yet Roadie is stalling or rotating slowly or with difficulty, please make sure that your pegs are clean and not rusty. If you feel that your pegs require higher torque to rotate, then one solution is to lubricate your tuning peg gears with oil otherwise we recommend you replace them before using your Roadie.

Please note that in order to preserve battery life, Roadie’s motor cannot be operated when it is being charged.
