Waverly's distinctive machined brass “2-Band” offset gear case and grained ivoroid knob will bring a handsome vintage touch to your banjo.

The best of vintage design and modern craftsmanship.
Smoother than the originals, thanks to 4:1 planetary gears, sealed lubrication, low-friction bushings, internal tension spring, leather knob washer and adjustable knob tension.

The brass string post has the original taper for proper string angle over the nut. The threaded hex bushing has a tapered washer to help protect the peghead finish.

For 7/16" to 3/4" (11.11mm x 19.05mm) peghead thickness. 3/8"-dia. pegholes required.

"Waverlys are smooth, accurate, and dependable."
—Sammy Shelor, The Lonesome River Band

"Very efficient and smooth banjo pegs. I highly recommend them."
—Tony Trischka

To be sure these tuners fit your instrument, compare your existing machines and peghole dimensions to our listed specs to help determine the best replacement.

New life for a pre-war Gibson Banjo

I recently acquired a pre-war Gibson Tenor banjo that was in rather sad shape with a broken peghead. I reformed the peghead with some maple pieces from a local hardware store and obtained the new tuning pegs to bring it back to a playable condition. The new tuning pegs are a joy to use, and have restored life to a damaged classic instrument. I also added an Ebonite veneer over the reconstructed peghead. When I received the veneer it had a significant split in it but the coverage I needed was available in the piece; even with the split. Attached are photos of the peghead, before and after the restoration. I am currently working on creating a new nut to complete its revival as a usable instrument.

Waverly Machines

I recently Ordered a set of Waverly Tuners for My vintage Vega Banjo. They are, in my opinion, the most gorgeous tuners available today. The look and feel is unmatched in any other tuning machines. Thanks StewMac

Made a huge difference

I just received the tuners today and installed them on a 1972 OME single X open back . This completes my restoration of this instrument and I could not be happier. They were very straight forward and easy to install. Well worth the price. They made the difference between a great banjo and an EXCEPTIONALLY great banjo.

Waverly Banjo Tuning Pegs

I bought a set to replace originals on an old B&D Special #1 tenor I was restoring. They arrived just in time to install for a St. Patty's Day gig and worked great!! Pretty much true to the originals.

Waverly planetary banjo tuners

These tuners were an upgrade to my 1924 Gibson tenor banjo. They are very high quality and they are made in the USA.

Great Customer Service

A set of these tuners were shipped to me as replacements for the 30+ year old 5-star tuners I had on my '29 Granada. The Waverly tuners (gold plated) look fantastic and work really well, making my old banjo a pleasure to play once again.

easy to install on a very old banjo

and well worth it - so easy to tune and still be able to enjoy the hide head on a very old, probably Sears or Montgomery Ward - added some weight to the peg head, but again - it's worth it
