Sloane Classical Machines with Leaf Bronze Baseplates

The choice of renowned luthiers!
Beautiful Sloane classical tuners are first choice for many fine concert guitars.

Superior quality components, innovative design and meticulous craftsmanship combine for tuning performance that's second to none. Conceived by pioneering luthier Irving Sloane and crafted by Waverly in the USA.

New level of smooth: precision ball bearings on each string roller take tuning to an even higher level of smoothness, with no binding.

Improved: powder-coated aluminum rollers with brass inner shafts. No cracking, no premature wear.

Superior design

  • Patented bushings eliminate looseness in the worm gear, for impressively precise tuning and smooth feel.
  • Baseplates and support posts are one-piece cast bronze, more stable than common riveted assemblies.
  • NEW precision ball bearings on each string roller prevent binding—a new level of smooth, effortless tuning for the performing artist.
  • Handsome white powder-coated aluminum string rollers have brass inner shafts and brass-lined string mounting holes. No cracking, no premature wear.

Long-life gears
  • Bronze alloy 16:1 crown gears are more durable than the brass gears used in other tuners.
  • Stainless steel worms and screws assure longer life with less wear.

Beauty to enhance fine instruments
  • Polished bronze baseplates attain a handsome antique patina.
  • Choose from a selection of beautiful polished knobs.

Awesome

The secret sauce in these tuners is that they include a bearing to be placed in the neck of the guitar where the white tuning roller that the string is attached to resides. So the tuning roller rotates on a bearing instead of the concentric circle in the neck of the guitar. Eliminates slippage and provides a consistent level of resistance when tuning. I put them on my 1984 Del Pilar Guitar and absolutely love them. Brings tuning to a whole new level. Terry at Guitar Works in Evanston recommended them and installed them. That's a great place with an excellent repair shop.

This has very nice performance. I think it is as nice as Rogers peg, better than any other peg. And the design is very good too.

I have fitted these to an 1837 Lacote I have been restoring for the last two months. They look stunning and operate perfectly. I would highly recommend these as befitting a treasured vintage salon guitar.
