Waverlys with shorter, uke-length string posts Luthiers and talented players no longer have to settle for ill-fitting guitar machines in sets that leave two unused tuners, or for off-the-shelf uke tuners that sacrifice performance for economy. Now you can have the same acclaimed reliability, smoothness and precision that make Waverly tuners the first choice of top luthiers for their best instruments.
Handsome wood knobs Sets of 2-left / 2-right, with beautiful curly koa or ebony knobs that complement traditional ukulele woods.
