Waverly Anniversary String Winder

About This Item

Pull this out of your guitar case and others will take notice!
With highly-polished brass, hand-crafted appointments, and silky smooth operation, the Waverly Anniversary String Winder is anything but ordinary.

Your prized instruments deserve more than a cheap string winder
The elegantly tapered handle and perfectly balanced weight make for a tool you won't want to put down (and friends won't want to give back!). It also works with small or large sized tuner buttons.

Celebrate 100 years of Waverly Tuning Machines
The Anniversary String Winder is manufactured using the same meticulous attention to detail as our Waverly Tuning Machines. Using only the finest materials and craftsmanship, Waverly has created a tool that completely changes the definition of what a string winder should be. You've got to feel it to believe it!

Ebony: this rich, genuine tonewood is carved and polished to a smooth finish. The naturally dark wood has colors of black, brown, and tan running through the grain.

Ivoroid: has a vintage look with subtle alternating bands of whites and creams. It resembles real ivory, but is a non-animal alternative.

Dark Tortoise: each string winder has completely unique coloring and pattern, just like hawksbill turtle shell. Held up to the light you'll see the contrasting brown and black coloring completely through the winder.

Both Ivoroid and Dark Tortoise are machined from Galalith, a dense and durable casein-based material that polishes beautifully.

Elegant string winder...but a slight caveat

By

Verified Buyer


Like other reviewers, I questioned the wisdom of spending so much for an item that, when you buy from some places, even gets tossed in free with an order. But those plastic freebies and the non-free plastic jobs are not on the same planet as this lovely piece--the plastic ones work, but this one works *and feels* like the very best. If that matters to you, this is worth the price. I'll add a caveat, now that I've used the Waverly on a variety of guitars: Some tuner-peg buttons won't fit into the slots (looking at you, Country Gentleman) and some fit but too tightly, so that inserting the button and removing it from the winder scrapes the button along the inside of the winder housing--and the inside of the housing on my Waverly is quite rough. Most buttons would probably withstand this unmarred, but on an older guitar or one you are really working to preserve, well, it made me use a tool with a larger slot.

Amazing luxury for less than $35.

Let's face it, even "the best" string winder is a bit of a pain to use. It is a tool that works "OK" and looks like a tool. Enter the Waverly Anniversary String Winder. I bought 2 of the Ebony models. They are made of ebony and brass, are finished beautifully and work perfectly. This is old world workmanship applied to a tool that I use frequently. Every time I pick it up, I get the pleasure of using a great example of form and function. An item that looks as good as it works. I think $35. is cheap for this product. It's the cost of a Chinese take out dinner and will provide years of enjoyment. It may be more expensive than your cheap winder but In the scheme of things, it's a bargain.

Not for some tuner pegs

Great quality; however, the tuner buttons on the Golden Age F5 mandolin tuning machines are too small to utilize this string winder. :(

Beautiful String Winders

Verified Buyer


I am the proud owner of both a black and a dark tortoise Waverly Anniversary String Winder. Nobody actually NEEDS a string winder as nice as these, but if you are an owner of really great instruments, these are "frosting-on-the-cake" to have for changing your strings. The craftmanship is perfect, they work like a dream; it's always the little things that set items apart, and I enjoy having the "best!"
