The choice of renowned guitarmakers for their finest instruments.
These Waverly machines are adorned with our specially blended dark tortoise material, a remarkable simulation of natural tortoiseshell. Light passes through, and it looks amazingly like protected hawksbill turtle shell. A beautiful addition to a fine guitar!
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.
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 and Gibson guitars.
More efficient operation and 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: Dark tortoise knobs resemble real hawksbill turtle shell, but are a durable non-animal alternative. Old style tapered string posts are nickel or gold-plated brass.
