Details

The choice of renowned guitarmakers for their finest instruments.
Highly polished genuine mother-of-pearl, in translucent black.

Waverly's feature old style tapered 1/4"-diameter string posts and the press-fit brass hex bushings fit 11/32"-diameter pegholes. Screws included.

With Waverly tuners, your guitar plays in tune and stays in tune. Waverly's patented design combines stainless steel with bronze to create smooth, non-slip tuning. The perfect replacement tuners for valued instruments, Waverly machines are handmade to fit precisely without drilling on older Martin and Gibson guitars. Manufacturers such as C.F. Martin, Gibson, Collings, Santa Cruz, Huss & Dalton, Sams, and Bourgeois choose Waverlys for their finest instruments.

Whether you're fitting a solid-peghead or slotted-peghead guitar, there are Waverly models to fit.

Conversion peghead bushings are available for installing Waverly tuning machines in larger diameter 3/8" diameter (Grover, Gotoh, Schaller, etc.) pegholes.

Direct replacement design: No additional mounting holes to drill when replacing similar vintage machines on older Martin & Gibson guitars.

More efficient operation & more precise tuning: 16:1 gear ratio. Patented worm tension bushing eliminates looseness.

Long life with less wear: Stainless steel worm gears have twin bushings. String post gears are machined from bronze alloy; more durable than brass.

Authentic knobs and string posts: Knobs are genuine mother-of-pearl, specially treated to have a transluscent black color. Old style tapered string posts are nickel-plated brass.

Great tuners

By gutardon from Chicago
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, April 03, 2013


Waverly tuners are the best for staying in tune and easy operation and the black pearl adds beauty to my collings 02 sunburst.

Tuning stability and looks

By Jamie from Amdover, MA
(Customer's Reviews) Sunday, September 26, 2010


Everyone knows how stable Waverly's are and the tuning stability they provide - these fit that bill perfectly. Added them to a Martin 000-18GE with pearly inlay markers and the Waverly Black Pearls were a spot on match. Very pleasing to the eye.
