Made from composite and light alloy material, maintaining the traditional hardwood appearance demanded by professional musicians. Installed by pressing into place without glue. Peg shaft stays in place, and tuning is done by turning peg head. There is no peg/pegbox friction, and peg is not affected by climate and humidity changes.
Only the button and the geared middle section of the shaft on which the string is wound, moves. The Fine Tune pegs have an internal gearing ratio of 8:1 for precise tuning.
We recommend installation by a professional. Before placing your order, we recommend looking at the sizing chart for proper sizing.
Love: second set of these pegs
I had these pegs installed on my baroque viola as with gut strings it requires frequent retuning. I loved the ease of tuning so much that I ordered another set for my modern viola. Brilliant invention!
Love these pegs
I wish I had discovered these pegs a long time ago. Tuning my large viola with aging hands is now a breeze. Ordering was easy and information on the website about these pegs is very helpful (how to measure, etc.).
Great update for the Viola
I had the new geared pegs installed by a pro. My first tuning was surreal - no hard-turning pegs, and it tuned effortlessly. What an invention!
Three Violins Transformed
My friend was having difficulty maintaining her violins to be in tune using standard pegs due to constantly changing temperature and humidity conditions in our area. I since have exchanged the standard pegs to the Wittner pegs in all three violins. It is now effortless to her to maintain the desired/correct pitch for all strings.
