Performing artists stay in tune with Waverly:
“The best tuners in the world.” — Chris Thile
“They have changed my life.” — Sam Bush
“The frequent need for retuning during a show is gone.” — Ronnie McCoury
"I love Waverly tuners. The keys move with ease and hold strong, two important qualities we must have to perform night after night. I have Waverly tuners on all my mandolins. I wouldn't want to use anything else. They are the best!" — Rhonda Vincent

Ultra-smooth operation, precise, reliable tuning, long life and classic beauty.

Each handsome engraved baseplate is now computer-machined from a single brass billet, for lighter weight with unwavering stability.

Standard spacing measures 29/32" (.906") between each string post.

String post diameter: .236"
Required peghole diameter: 21/64 or .328"

Set includes a pair of 4L/4R tuning machines, mounting screws and knurled press-fit brass peghead bushings. Mounting screws included.

Peghead Bushing Reamer
For Waverly mandolin tuning machines

Get the right fit! This slow-speed bushing reamer has a 1/4" pilot and 11/32" shank. Two 1" flutes cut a .328"-diameter counterbore for 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.

Quality Doesn't Come Cheap

These Waverly's are pricey, but it seems that if you want quality you havta pay extra for it. I'm not disappointed at all. I bought the nickel plated ones with the ebony (not plastic) knobs. It solved the slippage problems I had with stock tuners on my Gibson 2003 F5G mandolin. They've been on there for 5 years now with no issues.
