I just got a new Ibanez and the machine heads on it totally suck if you want to put it in any tuning other than standard. does anyone know some good tuners that don't cost a fortune?

Sperzels, Schallers, and Gotoh's spring to mind. All cost around $75-$80 or so.

if you want to go cheap, Guitar Fetish has some for around $30, but they are kind of hit and miss. You get what you pay for, eh?

Look at the Guitar Fetish ones then. Honestly, save up another $30 and get one of the more quality brands, you'll be glad you did.

Buy something for 50 bucks now, and be back where you started, or save up and get something that actually solves your problem.

Schaller, Gotoh, Sperzel, Grover...

Grover, Schaller, Gotoh, several others spring to mind as well.
