Waverly Banjo Tuning Pegs

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

(Customer's Reviews)

These tuning pegs are perfect,smooth and accurate, they look great on my banjos. the construction allow to install different buttons without any modifications. I recommend them to all banjo players who want precision and great look at the same time.


Smooth operators

(Customer's Reviews)

I bought a set of Waverlys to replace the worn-out friction pegs on a crappy old open-back banjo and was immediately impressed with the good looks, smooth mechanism and ease of tuning. Later I purchased two more sets from StewMac for banjos I'm making from scratch. Unfortunately the tiny mounting pin which keeps the tuner from rotating in the peghead was missing from one tuner - a manufacturing defect. StewMac have replaced the tuner at no cost to me, including air freight. How good is that??


Waverly tuners

(Customer's Reviews)

These are very sweet. They're installed on an Epiphone (Chinese) MB 250. The banjo itself is quite nice but like offshore guitars, lacking in good hardware. These made a real difference in intonation and holding power. Great product.
