Legendary precision, now for ukes! Unique Waverlys that fit right, look great, and bring precise tuning to fine ukuleles.
Waverlys with shorter, uke-length string posts
Luthiers and talented players no longer have to settle for ill-fitting guitar machines in sets that leave two unused tuners, or for off-the-shelf uke tuners that sacrifice performance for economy. Now you can have the same acclaimed reliability, smoothness and precision that make Waverly tuners the first choice of top luthiers for their best instruments.
Smoother, more efficient tuning. Waverly's renowned 16:1 gear mechanism is second to none. Waverly tuners feature a proven, precisely machined design ensuring accurate, efficient gear alignment. Nylon worm gear bushings enhance the smooth feel. The result: looseness is eliminated—your instrument plays in tune and stays in tune.
Longer life with less wear. Waverly's stainless steel worm gear and machined bronze alloy string post gear are more durable than the brass gears used in other tuners.

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 #1714 Depth-stop Drill Bit (3/32" 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.
