Waverly F-style Mandolin Machines with Dark Tortoise Knobs

Waverly tuners feature ultra-smooth operation and precise, reliable tuning. They're built to look beautiful and last a lifetime. These are simply the finest mandolin tuning machines available anywhere!

Our uncompromising tuner design features patented threaded worm tension bushings that eliminate looseness for maximum tuning efficiency. The precision-machined stainless steel worm gears, bronze alloy string post gears, and 16:1 gear ratio assure smooth, accurate tuning.

Each handsome engraved baseplate is CNC machined from a single brass billet, for lighter weight and unwavering stability.

Our specially blended dark tortoise knob material looks amazingly like protected hawksbill turtle shell—light passes through to show the incredible depth of color.

Installation tips

Use a jig for perfect alignment
Plate-mounted tuners can't work efficiently if the pegholes are improperly drilled. Our Mandolin Drill Jig ensures precise 29/32" spacing for accurate alignment.

Counterbore for a perfect fit
Use our slow-speed #2061 Peghead Bushing Reamer (0.328" diameter) to cut a clean, accurate counterbore for a professional job.

Drill pilot holes for mounting screws
Installing delicate screws into hard wood requires great care and accuracy. We highly recommend the #1712 Depth-stop Drill Bit (5/64" 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.
