"The smoothest and most consistent-working non-geared ukulele tuning pegs I've ever seen, new or old."
—Matt Umanov, Umanov Guitars, NYC
In the early 1900s the ukulele was king. Waverly uke pegs bring back a simple but innovative non-geared design that tuned many fine instruments: the knob screw adjusts the tension, and an internal coil spring provides smoothness and slip-resistance. Unsurpassed by standard friction tuners, they combine precision-machined quality with an authentic vintage look. Simply the finest traditional friction pegs you can install on your ukulele.
Choice of beautifully polished knobs: curly koa, solid ebony or grained ivoroid.
Nickel-plated brass, set of 4.
Waverly Ukulele Friction Pegs offer modern precision with vintage style, ideal for instrument restoration. Waverly tuners will work properly in pegholes with diameters between 7/32" and 1/4" (5.56mm to 6.35mm).
For new builds, we recommend drilling a 3/16" (5mm) peghole diameter.
For appearance and proper function, pegholes should be chamfered for the top washer and the rear housing. We have just the right countersink bit for cutting this chamfer.
Peghead thickness can vary from 5/16" to 9/16" (7.94mm to 14.29mm).
