About This Item

Our Waverly 5th string peg features machined brass components in a unique compact design that eliminates a right-angle string post.

Features sealed lubrication and adjustable knob tension. The "2-band" gear case, 4:1 ratio planetary gears, and handsome traditional ivoroid knob match our Waverly banjo pegs. A tapered peghole is required.

Best "5th wheel" ever

By

Verified Buyer


The Waverly 5th string peg fit perfectly (using the StewMac 5th peg reamer.) It is a very clean design and holds tuning flawlessly. I have to admit, this was my first instrument build from scratch and I do not have years of experience, but maybe that is part of the beauty of it. It made me look good...Great tuner!

5th string Waverly machine.

By

Verified Buyer


The Waverly 5th string machine is the perfect compliment to a set of Waverly machines. The function is superb and the look is far cleaner than other brands. The Waverlys look great on my Tubaphone and Whyte Laydie. Thanks StewMac.

Great deal - again..

Excelent product, fast delivery though overseas!
Only thing is I think you ought to sell it as a kit with the reamer.
When I first got the reamer, mounting was no problem and my banjo is solid as a rock!!

Great tuner

By

Verified Buyer


Many people will say this tuner is a pain to use because of small pieces of string that become lodged in the very tight housing. I have not had that problem. The tuner is smooth, easy to string, and no more needles sticking my thumb when I slide.

Gretsch Banjo fifth string swap. Neat!

By

Verified Buyer


My brother got an old Gretsch banjo and it had a friction fifth string tuning peg, which did not stay in tune very well. So I call up my friends at StewMac and said, "Dan man, I like got this old Banjo Dan and I can't get it to stay in tune Dan and what am I gonna do man?" He recommended this neat little fifth string tuner made by Waverly! I ordered it and to my everlasting delight, it not only stays in tune perfectly but also looks really neat!

I Agree

After installing this 5th String peg I would have to agree with one of the reviews I read before the purchase at Stew-Mac. I'm ready to replace all my 5th string pegs with these.
