Specs
Superior quality components, innovative design and meticulous craftsmanship combine for tuning performance that's second to none. Conceived by pioneering luthier Irving Sloane and crafted by Waverly in the USA.

New level of smooth: precision ball bearings on each string roller take tuning to an even higher level of smoothness, with no binding.

Improved: powder-coated aluminum rollers with brass inner shafts. No cracking, no premature wear.

Superior design
  • Patented bushings eliminate looseness in the worm gear, for impressively precise tuning and smooth feel.
  • Baseplates and support posts are one-piece cast bronze, more stable than common riveted assemblies.
  • NEW precision ball bearings on each string roller prevent binding—a new level of smooth, effortless tuning for the performing artist.
  • Handsome white powder-coated aluminum string rollers have brass inner shafts and brass-lined string mounting holes. No cracking, no premature wear.

Long-life gears
  • Bronze alloy 16:1 crown gears are more durable than the brass gears used in other tuners.
  • Stainless steel worms and screws assure longer life with less wear.

Beauty to enhance fine instruments
  • Polished bronze baseplates attain a handsome antique patina.
  • Choose from a selection of beautiful polished knobs.

great quality

Upgraded my Taylor pings to Sloane and I am now able to tune my guitar properly and maintain stable tuning. Because of the quality, I believe the price is fair. I am very happy with these tuners and would not hesitate to purchase another set.

Sloane Classical Guitar Machines

I have been using Sloane tuners since they were being made by Mr. Sloane himself. I've always thought highly of them....but these new machines with the ball bearings on the string roller, are the best and smoothest running Sloane tuners yet. Really nice!! Now...if we could get them gold plated!

Upgrade Sloane tuners

The upgrade is working very good. I used the old Sloane tuners for more than ten years. The new inside cylinder gives a more quiet and precise tuning. The snakewood knobs give extra cachet. I would like to make a recommendation for all Sloane users.

Sloane Classical tuning machines

These should come with a warning. After you have a set, nothing else will do! Dropped into my Taylor using the same screw holes...just as easy as my Martin

Sloane tuners

Sloane classical tuners look good, work smoothly, and give years of dependable service, which is why I use them on most of my classical guitars. They are a great alternative to the "designer tuners" available on the market today, which often cost 2 or 3 times as much.

very nice

These are very nice tuners, but the rollers are not 3/8" diameter. 3/8" equals .375" and the diameter of the rollers are actually .391" and will not fit a 3/8" hole. 10mm equals .3937 inches which is the diamerer of the hole needed. I would have given these 5 stars had StewMac's information been correct, but once again it wasn't.

ukasaurus,
Thanks for pointing this out. We have updated our description of the rollers and the peghole size requirement. We're glad you liked the tuners.

Fantastic quality tuners

The quality of these tuners is immediately obvious. I haven't fitted them yet (still polishing) but they look great and the engineering is really precise. Good price too. I think I'll be ordering some more.

LOVERLY

I decided to spring for the dollars for the 5710-B set. I was blown away as to how beautiful these tuners are. They hold tune and are way classier than the gotoh cr-p that they replaced. The ONLY thing I might have changed were the hold down screws, which are slotted as opposed to phillips. They could match the tuners somewhat better in color, and appeared to me to be out of place. Otherwise, these tuners are high quality and just plain classy.

Well made and precise

I am really happy with these tuners, they not only look good but in this price range, take the beating.

Irving Sloane Tuners

Even before you take them out of the box, you'll be impressed; they look fabulous and the quality of the workmanship is second to none. The tuning is both accurate and silky smooth. At the price they offer un-matched value for money - no wonder so many fine guitar makers fit them. They have certainly enhanced my beautiful Fylde Classical guitar - thanks Stewmac.
