Why do the pros choose Waverly?
Smoother, more efficient tuning. Waverly's renowned 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 guitar 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.
Vintage details. The look is right at home on vintage-style instruments. Authentic "Butterbean" knobs (a description coined by the late Martin historian Mike Longworth) are solid brass, not die-cast, with the historically-correct shape not found on other modern tuners.
The sturdy steel baseplates have the authentic 1930s footprint. String shafts are vintage-style straight single-hole 1/4"-diameter brass, for 3-left/3-right slotted pegheads. Slot-head mounting screws complete the vintage look.
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.
