Specs
Waverly tuners feature old style tapered 1/4"-diameter string posts and the press-fit brass hex bushings fit 11/32"-diameter pegholes. Screws included.

With Waverly tuners, your guitar plays in tune and stays in tune. Waverly's patented design combines stainless steel with bronze to create smooth, non-slip tuning. The perfect replacement tuners for valued instruments, Waverly machines are handmade to fit precisely without drilling on older Martin and Gibson guitars. Manufacturers such as C.F. Martin, Gibson, Collings, Santa Cruz, Huss & Dalton, Sams, and Bourgeois choose Waverlys for their finest instruments.

Whether you're fitting a solid-peghead or slotted-peghead guitar, there are Waverly models to fit.

Conversion peghead bushings are available for installing Waverly tuning machines in larger diameter 3/8" diameter (Grover, Gotoh, Schaller, etc.) pegholes.

Direct replacement design: No additional mounting holes to drill when replacing similar vintage machines on older Martin & Gibson guitars.

More efficient operation & more precise tuning: 16:1 gear ratio. Patented worm tension bushing eliminates looseness.

Long life with less wear: Stainless steel worm gears have twin bushings. String post gears are machined from bronze alloy; more durable than brass.

Authentic knobs and string posts: Ivoroid knobs resemble real ivory, but are a durable non-animal alternative. Old style tapered string posts are nickel-plated brass.

For Waverly guitar tuning machines

Waverly tuners rock

These are the finest tuners that I have ever used. Intonation and harmonics of each note is greatly and perfectly improved. Tuning and playing my acoustic guitar was never better.

Great product, Excellent customer service

I bought a new guitar with Waverly tuners that did not feel as smooth as I expected. Stewart MacDonald sent me out a new set, no questions asked, which were smooth as silk. I am so impressed with their customer service, I will recommend Stewart MacDonald and Waverly tuners to anyone now. Thanks so much!

Absolutely the best

I bought a set of Waverly's for an old archtop guitar I was restoring. Not only are they beautiful but they are the highest quality tuners I've seen. They work smoothly and it's very easy to get precise tuning. The guitar stays in tune a long time.

The best tuners, the BEST customer support

I love Waverly tuners & buy them for all of my guitars, but I love the Stew-Mac customer support even more. I purchased a used Martin 000-18 Norman Blake which comes with these tuners, so I was not a customer of Stew-Mac or Martin. One tuner had a mild grinding and even with a drop of oil, it still was not smooth. I called Stew-Mac to purchase 1 replacement tuner. Though we had no business relationship, they offered to swap out the entire set for a new set. I had to talk them down to a single tuner. This was the most stellar customer service that I've ever experienced. I am a long time customer of Stew-Mac, but I hadn't mentioned that when I called in and asked to buy 1 tuner.

There is not a chance that I will ever again purchase anything guitar related without checking first to see what Stew-Mac offers

Best tuners I have ever used!

These are the highest quality tuners I have ever seen or used. They are incredibly smooth and the gear ratio makes it very easy to get an accurate tune. The thing that impresses me most about these tuners is their ability to keep a guitar in tune for long lengths. I put a set of these on an acoustic of mine and after three days of playing, put the guitar down for 2 months, and the guitar was still right on the money and in tune!

Amazing tuners, worthy of the escalated prices.
