"They hold their tune and look superb...of course I recommend Waverly." —Dick Boak, Martin Guitars

Why do the pros choose Waverly tuners?
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. Authentic 1930s style "Vintage Oval" knobs 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 authentic look.
The cure for sweet old guitars with cranky old tuners! Waverly Relics make your vintage or reproduction instrument look and tune as good as it sounds. The special relic nickel finish has that authentic "played for 80 years" patina that makes shiny new tuners look out of place on a fine old guitar. Set of 3-left/3-right, with screws.
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.
