Waverly Guitar Tuners with Ivoroid Knobs, for Solid Pegheads

About This Item

The choice of renowned guitarmakers for their finest instruments.
Ivoroid knobs are an environmentally friendly way to dress up any instrument.

Waverly tuners feature old style tapered 1/4"-diameter string posts and the press-fit brass hex bushings fit 11/32"-diameter pegholes. Screws included.

With Waverly tuners, your guitar plays in tune and stays in tune. Waverly's patented design combines stainless steel with bronze to create smooth, non-slip tuning. The perfect replacement tuners for valued instruments, Waverly machines are handmade to fit precisely without drilling on older Martin and Gibson guitars. Manufacturers such as C.F. Martin, Gibson, Collings, Santa Cruz, Huss & Dalton, Sams, and Bourgeois choose Waverlys for their finest instruments.

Conversion peghead bushings are available for installing Waverly tuning machines in larger diameter 3/8" diameter (Grover, Gotoh, Schaller, etc.) pegholes.

Direct replacement design: No additional mounting holes to drill when replacing similar vintage machines on older Martin & Gibson guitars.

More efficient operation & 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 posts: Ivoroid knobs resemble real ivory, but are a durable non-animal alternative. Old style tapered string posts are nickel or gold-plated brass.

Peghead Bushing Reamer
For Waverly guitar tuning machines
Get the right fit! This slow-speed bushing reamer has a 1/4" pilot and 11/32" shank. Two 1" flutes cut a .340"-diameter counterbore for Waverly press-fit peghead bushings.

Waverly Guitar Tuners with Ivoroid Knobs, for Solid Pegheads

By

Verified Buyer


What can I say other than they are great tuners. IMHO, Waverlys are the best tuners on earth.
I've used Grover 18:1 Sta-tites also but the Waverlys are better made, and cast rather than stamped.
The Ivroid buttons look nice on my Martin Custom 15 from 1994.

Waverly tuners on Martin 000-15M

By


I purchased the Waverly open back nickel tuners with the Ivoroid knobs. I took the Grover open back tuners off my Martin 000-15M (2016 model) and these babies fit with zero alterations. No filling of holes and redrilling. Very pleased. Yes they are expensive but they look and feel fantastic. Very glad I got these. Stew Mac was of course so easy to deal with.
