Waverly Ukulele Friction Pegs

About This Item

"The smoothest and most consistent-working non-geared ukulele tuning pegs I've ever seen, new or old." —Matt Umanov, Umanov Guitars, NYC

In the early 1900s the ukulele was king. Waverly uke pegs bring back a simple but innovative non-geared design that tuned many fine instruments: the knob screw adjusts the tension, and an internal coil spring provides smoothness and slip-resistance. Unsurpassed by standard friction tuners, they combine precision-machined quality with an authentic vintage look. Simply the finest traditional friction pegs you can install on your ukulele.

Nickel-plated brass, set of 4.

Waverly Ukulele Friction Pegs offer modern precision with vintage style, ideal for instrument restoration. Waverly tuners will work properly in pegholes with diameters between 7/32" and 1/4" (5.56mm to 6.35mm).

For new builds, we recommend drilling a 3/16" (5mm) peghole diameter.

For appearance and proper function, pegholes should be chamfered for the top washer and the rear housing. We have just the right countersink bit for cutting this chamfer.

Peghead thickness can vary from 5/16" to 9/16" (7.94mm to 14.29mm).

Sur un viel ukulélé trouvé en brocante, un Rosa d'origine et Hawaïen pur jus! je ne savais pas quoi mettre comme mécaniques sans avoir à modifier quoi que ce soit. J'ai opté d'emblée pour le haut de gamme, version Koa, et j'en suis fort aise, because s'adapte impeccablement aux orifices existants et esthétiquement c'est classe dans dénaturer le look d'époque. en plus, y'a pas mieux pour l'accordage et son maintien. Merci Stewart-McD. pour la qualité du catalogue où c'est vachement bien expliqué et le service commercial et acheminement. toutes raisons d'être satisfait

I had never used these sort of tuners before but used these to replace some very worn ones on a post war baritone Harmony uke. They keep tune very well and they're smooth to operate. One star down because I thought the knobs could be just a little bigger.

After my item got a bit lost I was treated like a king. Everything was done to get my parts to me in NZ. Fantastic service in trying conditions.
