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.

Excellent Tuning Pegs WIth Excellent Warranty

I have had the Waverly pegs on my Gibson Banjo ever since I got the instrument and had trouble free service for many years until I started having trouble with the pegs slipping. If I tightened the tension screw enough to prevent slipping the pegs were almost impossible to move. I contacted Stew Mac and one of their knowledgeable reps told me the pegs were lifetime warranty if indeed they were original Waverly . To make a long story short I received excellent service on the warranty and put my old banjer back in top shape! I replaced the original Schaller 5th string peg with a Waverly Planetary peg and that made all the difference in the world!!
I can truthfulls say that the Waverly pegs are the absolute best I have tried or used and they come highly recommended from me!

Thanks for the great service Stew Mac!

Smooth operators

I bought a set of Waverlys to replace the worn-out friction pegs on a crappy old open-back banjo and was immediately impressed with the good looks, smooth mechanism and ease of tuning. Later I purchased two more sets from StewMac for banjos I'm making from scratch. Unfortunately the tiny mounting pin which keeps the tuner from rotating in the peghead was missing from one tuner - a manufacturing defect. StewMac have replaced the tuner at no cost to me, including air freight. How good is that??

Waverly tuners

These are very sweet. They're installed on an Epiphone (Chinese) MB 250. The banjo itself is quite nice but like offshore guitars, lacking in good hardware. These made a real difference in intonation and holding power. Great product.
