Waverly Banjo Tuning Pegs

About This Item

Inspired by the unique pegs used on prewar Gibson Florentine, Bella Voce and Granada banjos, and Martin OM guitars in the '20s and '30s.

Waverly's distinctive machined brass "2-Band" offset gear case and grained ivoroid knob will bring a handsome vintage touch to your banjo.

The best of vintage design and modern craftsmanship.
Smoother than the originals, thanks to 4:1 planetary gears, sealed lubrication, low-friction bushings, internal tension spring, leather knob washer and adjustable knob tension.

The brass string post has the original taper for proper string angle over the nut. The threaded hex bushing has a tapered washer to help protect the peghead finish.

For 7/16" to 3/4" (11.11mm x 19.05mm) peghead thickness. 3/8"-dia. pegholes required.

"Waverlys are smooth, accurate, and dependable."
—Sammy Shelor, The Lonesome River Band

"Very efficient and smooth banjo pegs. I highly recommend them."
—Tony Trischka

Perfect for Vintage Appearance and Modern Performance

(Customer's Reviews)

The original tuners on '89 Gibson RB3 were getting sloppy. They were the old Schaller pancakes. I replaced them with the Waverly units and am highly pleased. The ivoroid buttons are more correct in appearance. The tuners are smooth and stable.


Definite Best!

(Customer's Reviews)

Waverly makes the overall best line of replacement tuning pegs for replacement or reproduction 5-string necks or modern vintage banjos.


Wave on Waverly

(Customer's Reviews)

I picked up a full set of Waverly banjo pegs for my son's birthday. He has a very nice five-string but the pegs, in my opinion, were not up to the quality of the instrument. I've known a handful of luthiers over the years and I've never heard one say a negative thing about Waverly tuners - for any instrument. They are beautifully engineered (made in the USA) and operate with ultra-smooth precision. And they have a great look as well. An American made product that is definitely worth every penny. Wave on Waverly!
