Sloane Classical Guitar Machines with Stippled Bronze Baseplates

About This Item

The choice of renowned luthiers!
Beautiful Sloane classical tuners are 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—crafted and refined by Waverly. 

Each set includes a pair of 3-left/3-right tuning machines with mounting screws.

New level of smooth: precision ball bearings on each string roller take tuning to an even higher level of smoothness, with no binding.

Improved: powder-coated aluminum rollers with brass inner shafts. No cracking, no premature wear.

    Superior design
  • Patented bushings eliminate looseness in the worm gear, for impressively precise tuning and smooth feel.
  • Baseplates and support posts are one-piece cast bronze, more stable than common riveted assemblies.
  • NEW precision ball bearings on each string roller prevent binding—a new level of smooth, effortless tuning for the performing artist.
  • Handsome white powder-coated aluminum string rollers have brass inner shafts and brass-lined string mounting holes. No cracking, no premature wear.
    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.
    Beauty to enhance fine instruments
  • Polished bronze baseplates attain a handsome antique patina.
  • Choose from a selection of beautiful polished knobs.

Installation Tips

Mounting screws: Pilot holes required. Installing delicate screws into hard wood requires great care and accuracy. We highly recommend the #1713 Depth-stop Drill Bit (No.44 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.

Excellent quality, had a pair that went for 16 years

By

Verified Buyer


These were exact replacements for me - had my 1st set for 16 years before a knob finally failed.

Had a quality issue with a bent string barrel with the 1st set purchased, but StewMac was great to work with an fixed the issue immediately. Greatly appreciated!!

Dropped right in, high quality.

Exceptional

My old tuners were tight to turn and creaked inside the post. The Sloane's are quiet, precise, and just a joy to turn. Makes playing much more fun.

Excellent tuners

By

Verified Buyer


I purchased a Ramirez classical guitar(guitarre del tiempo model)
and was really disappointed with the tuner quality.They looked like
schaller knockoffs.This was a surprise as the rest of the guitar is
of excellent quality and sound. I had known about Sloane tuners for
a number of years but had never seen them on a guitar.To make a long story short,I
purchased a pair from Stewmac.Didnt know if they would fit but they dropped right
in.They are beautiful and of excellent quality.Thank you,Mr. Sloane

Smooth as silk, tight as..........

These are the best tuners I've experienced.
The bearings on the shaft ends provide absolutely NO BINDING.
The smoothness and totally linear tightening/loosening have to be experienced to believe.
It's like going from a normal car to an exotic sports car.
I build classical guitars and these will be the only tuners for me going forward.
