Waverly F-style Mandolin Machines with Ivoroid Knobs, Bright nickel

About This Item

"Simply the best you can get." — David Grisman

Our uncompromising design features patented threaded worm tension bushings that eliminate looseness, for maximum tuning efficiency. The precision-machined stainless steel worm gears, bronze alloy string post gears and 16:1 gear ratio assure smooth, accurate tuning.

Performing artists stay in tune with Waverly:
“The best tuners in the world.” — Chris Thile
“They have changed my life.” — Sam Bush
“The frequent need for retuning during a show is gone.” — Ronnie McCoury
"I love Waverly tuners. The keys move with ease and hold strong, two important qualities we must have to perform night after night. I have Waverly tuners on all my mandolins. I wouldn't want to use anything else. They are the best!" — Rhonda Vincent

Ultra-smooth operation, precise, reliable tuning, long life and classic beauty.

Each handsome engraved baseplate is now computer-machined from a single brass billet, for lighter weight with unwavering stability.

Standard spacing measures 29/32" (.906") between each string post.

String post diameter: .236"
Required peghole diameter: 21/64 or .328"

Each set includes:
• Pair of 4-left, 4-right tuning machines
• Knurled press-fit brass peghead bushings
• Mounting screws


Installation Tips

Peghole spacing: Plate-mounted tuners can't work efficiently if the pegholes are improperly drilled. Our Mandolin Peghead Drill Jig ensures precise 29/32" spacing for accurate alignment.

Bushings: Get the right fit! Use our slow-speed #2061 Bushing Reamer (.328" diameter) to cut a clean, accurate counterbore for a professional job.

Mounting screws: Pilot holes required. Installing delicate screws into hard wood requires great care and accuracy. We highly recommend the #1712 Depth-stop Drill Bit (5/64" bit) for the pilot hole before installing these screws. Lubricate the screw threads with cutting lubricant (also wax or a bar of soap) to reduce friction and help them thread properly.

Great Mandolin Tuners

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I bought a F-5 Kit From Stewmac around 1992 and bought a set of cheap tuners, I have stuggled with the tuning and thought it was the way I put the kit together. After installing the Waverly Tuners I can fine tune and the Instrument stays in tune. The tone is better because my F-5 is actually in tune. Great Tuners
