The choice of renowned guitarmakers for their finest instruments.
Lightweight, exotic snakewood is ideal for a non-traditional, modern look.

Waverly tuners feature old style tapered 1/4"-diameter string posts and the press-fit brass hex bushings fit 11/32"-diameter pegholes. Set of 6 gold tuners, 3 left/3 right, 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 snakewood. Old style tapered string posts are gold-plated brass.

Fit perfectly on my 1946 Martin 00-18. Smooth tuning, classy gold, snakewood reminds me of brazilian rosewood. Expensive but worth it.

I bought a Collings Baby 01 with the standard tuners and regreted not getting the Sankewood tuner upgrade. So I ordered a set and it is definately worth the money. The add the finising touch to an already perfect guitar.

Not for everyone

By Bill Scanlon from Keller, TX
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, July 20, 2011

I agree that these tuners are top notch, but to the everyday player they are not worth the extra money. I installed these for a customer who is a professional player. He did not see a significant improvement over the original tuners that came on his Martin. Certainly not triple the moneys worth.

The ONLY tuners I use!

Waverly's are the only tuners I use on my custom guitars. For me, nothing beats them.

The Waverly Guitar Machines make a beautiful upgrade for an existing tuner, or a really classy statement for a new guitar. These took my Martin, a step further in class. The snakewood is a great match for the guitar. These also hold tune so much better than the less expensive tuners.

Sometimes it is true that you get what you pay for. Stew-Mac stands behind these tuners, and they offer great support in choice and installation. This is a winning selection.
