Specs
With Waverly tuners, your guitar plays in tune and stays in tune. Their acclaimed design, precise 16:1 gear ratio, long-life stainless steel/bronze construction, and smooth, reliable operation have made them the favorite of renowned guitarmakers and musicians for their finest instruments.

Waverly tuners offer modern precision with vintage style. Try our relic nickel finish, an antique look for vintage and reproduction guitars.

Martin, Gibson, Collings, Santa Cruz, Huss & Dalton, Sams, Bourgeois and other guitarmakers specify Waverly tuners for their top-line instruments.

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.
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 posts are vintage-style tapered 1/4"-diameter brass, with press -fit knurled brass hex bushings to fit 11/32"-diameter pegholes. Slot-head mounting screws complete the vintage look; there are no additional holes to drill on many older Martins and Gibsons.




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 bushings and screws.



Conversion peghead bushings are also available for retrofitting Waverly tuners into larger Gotoh, Grover or Schaller pegholes, without doweling and redrilling. A Stewart-MacDonald exclusive!

Peghead Bushing Reamer for Waverly Guitar Tuners
Need the right fit? Our slow-speed Bushing Reamer cuts the correct 11/32" counterbore for trouble-free installation of Waverly press-fit peghead bushings.

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.

Faultless

You cannot beat these. Flawless construction. Smooth operation. Not cheap, however.

Lives up to the hype

I dismissed the buzz about Waverlies until I tried a few guitars which had them. But there was such a difference between them and the stock Gotohs on my 2007 OM-21 that I had no choice - they had to go on. With a reamer and a little patience, they went on with no problems. Smooth, no slip, they really do make it easier to tune quickly and more precisely. Great product!

Waverly tuners

Waverly tuners are the standard tuner for all my guitars. I want the best for my customers and that means Waverly.

I love the relic finish

My 1939 D-18 needed new tuners, as I received the guitar in distressed condition. After a tech brought her back to life, I couldn't put on shiny new tuners. The relic finish looks great, and works perfectly.

2 sets

I used Waverley's on both my stewmac kits, a D and a 000. these are simply the finest tuners money can buy. A bit pricey, but they add such a nice touch. I'm a Waverly fan for sure.

Handsome and smooth

What can one say about Waverly tuning machines other than they are addictive this is my second set hopefully not the last!! These are a straight replacement for the Martin open geared machines on my HD28V!

Waverly butterbeans

Waverly's to replace stock tuners on my Martin HD28V. The guitar is sounding a bit tighter and has increased sustain. Great tuners! I love high quality products that last longer then a lifetime.

What was I waiting for?

I finally decided to take the plunge and put a set of Waves on my 2012 D-18. I was pretty happy with the Martin branded open backs that came on the 18 but I wanted to see what all the Waverly buzz was about and boy am I glad I did! Just the build quality alone is worth the money, these tuners ooze quality and they deserve the description that some have used as "bling for your guitar" but looks aren't everything, these function better than any mass produced tuners I've ever used - hands down the Waverlys are the smoothest operating and hold your tuning rock solid...no slop, no back lash, no BS, no kidding. I'm OCD when it comes to playing in tune and now with the Waves I'm not spending more time tweeking the buttons than I spend strumming the strings! Make your guitar happy, buy them, use them and you will love them. Thanks Waverly and thanks Stew-Mac!

Great Choice

I just had these installed on my OM-28V. They were a perfect fit, and they work and look great. These have worked out so well, two more of my Martins will each get a set next month.
