Details

The choice of renowned guitarmakers for their finest instruments. Ivoroid knobs are an environmentally friendly way to dress up any instrument.

With Waverly tuners, your slot-head guitar plays in tune and stays in tune. Their acclaimed design, precise 16:1 gear ratio, long-life stainless steel/bronze construction, and smooth, reliable operation have made them the favorite of renowned guitarmakers and musicians for their finest instruments.

Waverly tuners offer modern precision with vintage style.

Martin, Gibson, Collings, Santa Cruz, Huss & Dalton, Sams, Bourgeois and other guitarmakers specify Waverly tuners for their top-line instruments.

Why do the pros choose Waverly?

Smoother, more efficient tuning.
Waverly's renowned gear mechanism is second to none. Waverly tuners feature a proven, precisely machined design ensuring accurate, efficient gear alignment. Nylon worm gear bushings enhance the smooth feel. The result: looseness is eliminated—your guitar plays in tune and stays in tune.

Longer life with less wear.
Waverly's stainless steel worm gear and machined bronze alloy string post gear are more durable than the brass gears used in other tuners.

Vintage details.
The look is right at home on vintage-style instruments. Authentic "Butterbean" knobs (a description coined by the late Martin historian Mike Longworth) are solid brass, not die-cast, with the historically-correct shape not found on other modern tuners.

The sturdy steel baseplates have the authentic 1930s footprint. String shafts are vintage-style straight single-hole 1/4"-diameter brass, for 3-left/3-right slotted pegheads. Slot-head mounting screws complete the vintage look.

A worthy upgrade!

By JLD from Newcastle, UK

Bought as an upgrade to the stock tuners on my Republic resonator. Although the original tuners functioned ok, I wanted something a little more classy and it seemed like a fun project to switch them over. Other than a little bit of drilling, changing the tuners was quite straight forward. The Waverly tuners are well worth the money as they're so much smoother and you can most definitely feel the higher quality. Very happy and can't I fault Stewmac's awesome service.

Waverly Butterbean tuners for slotted peghead

I have Waverlys on a high end Martin, which I love. After debating whether to spend the extra money on Waverlys for an inexpensive (but great sounding) import resonator, I took the plunge and couldn't be happier. They look great. There is no skimping on craftsmanship, easily visible comparing photos - Waverlys are the only tuner with no mold seam or flashing on the knobs. Craftsmanship is further evident when tuning as they have the feel of a precision instrument and hold tune. While some of the less expensive open gear tuners might perform well, Waverlys are the best!
