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

Banjo jewelry

(Customer's Reviews)

These Waverly tuners are just beautiful. Smooth as silk and an incredible finish, I can't wait to install these jewels! Worth every penny.


Absolutely worth the extra bucks

(Customer's Reviews)

I originally unstalled a set of 5-Star tuners on my plectrum banjo but eventually, when it came to gigging, the 5-star tuners just weren't reliable enough. So I invested another 99 bucks in a set of waverly tuners and they are just a completely different world! I wish I had spent the extra 20 bucks from the beginning. Would have saved me 80 bucks...
