Specs
Our precision plate-style 16:1 machines feature the same gears and patented threaded worm bushings found on all Waverly guitar machines, for maximum tuning efficiency. 1/4"-diameter brass string shafts with 35mm/1-3/8" spacing are mounted on cast polished bronze baseplates. These artistically engraved plates age to a handsome patina. Slotted, round-head mounting screws included.

Direct replacement design
No additional mounting holes to drill when replacing similar vintage machines on older Martin, National, and Dobro guitars. Refer to the specs page for dimensions to compare to your instrument's tuners.

More efficient operation and better feel
Patented worm tension bearings eliminate the "play" inherent in other designs.

More efficient operation for more precise tuning
16:1 gear ratio. Patented worm tension bushing eliminates looseness.

Long life with less wear
Stainless steel worm gears have twin bushings. String post gears are machined from bronze alloy; more durable than brass.

Authentic knobs and string shafts
Black ebony knobs are light weight and add a clean look to your guitar. Ivoroid knobs resemble real ivory, but are a durable non-animal alternative. Brass string shafts are 1/4"-diameter with 35mm/1-3/8" spacing.

Only The Best

I use Waverly machine heads because I want only the best. Not only are they very rich and elegant looking they are precise. I have them on 3 of my guitars. No other brand comes close.

Upgrade your slothead

These were added to my Slotted-head Martin, and are beautifully smooth, low-geared, precise, elegant feeling. Really nice machines. I've had other brands on other guitars which were lumpy, or had an initial break-out friction when rotated - these feel like they're packed with viscous fluid (they're not, of course!) - just slick.
