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

Definite Best!

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

Wave on Waverly

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!

Very nice tuners

The Waverly tuning pegs are very smooth, feel very solid, and have a nice nickel finish. I would definitely use them on another build.

Form and function perfect

These tuners are a treat for the eye, and they work beautifully. They have the best combination of historic appearance and modern function. I have put them on several different banjos, and on a 1931 OM-28 I recently restored.

Top notch tuning machines! I replaced the cheapo tuners on my Harp Guitar and it now stays in tune for days rather than minutes!

I put Waverly banjo tuners in my 1924 Gibson Mastertone and my 1933 Bacon and Day tenor.. They are the best. If you want to play in tune get these tuning pegs..

I bought these along with the Waverly 5th string peg and they are solid, hold tuning perfectly and look great on the instrument. They are smooth to operate and just feel well-built. Awesome tuners!

Modern Tuning for Vintage Tenor

Installed on 1920's Slingerland tenor banjo, replacing the old 2:1, and tuning is now a joy! They look like they belong on this old jo. Money well spent.

New life for a pre-war Gibson Banjo

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I recently acquired a pre-war Gibson Tenor banjo that was in rather sad shape with a broken peghead. I reformed the peghead with some maple pieces from a local hardware store and obtained the new tuning pegs to bring it back to a playable condition. The new tuning pegs are a joy to use, and have restored life to a damaged classic instrument. I also added an Ebonite veneer over the reconstructed peghead. When I received the veneer it had a significant split in it but the coverage I needed was available in the piece; even with the split. Attached are photos of the peghead, before and after the restoration. I am currently working on creating a new nut to complete its revival as a usable instrument.
