Sloane Classical Guitar Tuners with Ivoroid Knobs and Flower Baseplates

The choice of renowned luthiers, hand-made Sloane classical tuners are the first choice for many fine concert guitars. Superior quality components, innovative design, and meticulous craftsmanship combine for tuning performance that's second to none. Conceived by pioneering luthier Irving Sloane—now crafted and refined by Waverly.

Superior design

  • Improved powder-coated aluminum rollers with brass inner shafts and brass-lined string mounting holes. No cracking, no premature wear.
  • Patented bushings eliminate looseness in the worm gear, for impressively precise tuning and smooth feel.
  • Baseplates and support posts are one-piece CNC machined brass, more stable than common riveted assemblies.
  • Precision ball bearings on each string roller prevent binding for a new level of smooth, effortless tuning for the performing artist.

Long-life gears

  • Bronze alloy 16:1 crown gears are more durable than the brass gears used in other tuners.
  • Stainless steel worms and screws assure longer life with less wear.

Ivoroid knobs resemble real ivory, but are a durable non-animal alternative. The brass baseplates will attain a handsome antique patina.


  • Modern 16:1 gear ratio
  • Ivoroid knobs
  • 3/8" (9.8mm) diameter string rollers with 13/32" (10mm) ball bearings
  • 1-3/8" string roller spacing (35mm)
  • Mounting hardware included
  • Set of two plates: 3-left/3-right tuners

Installation Tips
Drill pilot holes for for mounting screws:
Installing delicate screws into hard wood requires great care and accuracy. We highly recommend the #1711 Depth-stop Drill Bit (No.50 bit) for the pilot hole before installing these screws. Lubricate the screw threads with cutting lubricant (also wax or a bar of soap) to reduce friction and help them thread properly.
