    That's why. A US search doesn't search the UK but the link will take us there. They make really nice tuners.

    The starting price is well below that which I paid for an un-engraved set but I suppose it depends on what price they end up. The fleabay photo, however, isn’t of the item being sold it’s from Keith Robson’s facebook page (if that’s an issue?).

    Yeah, according to the Web site, the price for that set would be 445 GBP (or about $550 US). Seems like a pretty solid value, or at least comparable to Wav's.

    I've never seen Waverleys, but I do have a set of Robson tuners on an A mandolin, and they are wonderfully engineered. Keith Robson is a real craftsman and a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommended.

    Those are nice tuners! Are they made over in England? I've heard they are really well built and those other ones maybe Alessi tuners? I've never had the pleasure of seeing them in person or using them? I sure wish Waverly did the hand engraving like they used to do before they went to CNC and made the back plates also wider!
