Quality Doesn't Come Cheap

(Customer's Reviews)


These Waverly's are pricey, but it seems that if you want quality you havta pay extra for it. I'm not disappointed at all. I bought the nickel plated ones with the ebony (not plastic) knobs. It solved the slippage problems I had with stock tuners on my Gibson 2003 F5G mandolin. They've been on there for 5 years now with no issues.
