Very nice, takes some getting used to

I used these pegs to replace problematic pegs on a couple old 'backup' and 'camping' violins, pegs that would have needed reaming anyway, with replacement of oversize pegs. Other than the (considerable) cost of these pegs, I had nothing to lose. Installation was straightforward, although you MUST use a correctly tapered professional peg reamer. If you don't have this tool (and know how to use it!) you should not attempt installing these pegs yourself. The best thing about them is that I could remove the fine tuners. The violins tune easily with these geared pegs, and now I don't have to mess around with adjusting fine tuners that are ******* all the way in. My only very minor issue is that these pegs do have a real learning curve. Pushing them in to 'lock' them, and tugging them out for easy tuning, is a learned operation. I had a lot of trouble at first, either finding them hard to turn, or having the string immediately go flat after tuning. But now that I have the hang of it, tuning is easy. They just have a radically different feel from wood pegs. I'll mention one concern that may be completely invalid. You have to screw these in hard (which they emphasize in their instructions), and they are tapered. The 'splitting' force exerted on the peg box as you screw them in must be enormous, probably a lot more than one would get from hand-pressed wood pegs. I would not use these on a violin with the tiniest hint of a split in the peg box, and honestly, I'm not sure I'd put these on a really valuable violin due to this risk. But that's just my inexpert opinion.

Great Product!

I installed these pegs on a cheap eBay electric violin. They sound great, and keep tune.

Fiddlershop Rules!

Perfection pegs are common. 8.3mm less so, but Fiddlershop has them in stock. They arrived promptly. They look, feel, and work great, of course. I have shopped several violin stores over the years. These good people have quickly become my go-to.

Perfection Planetary Geared Heads

First of all it was a real pain that I had to pay about 30.00 dollars customs on my package. Next time just write on the label something like "Plastic pegs/value $30.00." Next, the legs are just about impossible to install with a normal 30:01 reamer. They do not thread by themselves, as described. Just don't. I have installed them on a ukulele headstock. They fit into place and all that but they do not thread in. The only way for them to hold is to glue them in. There is just no way on earth, having reamed the hole for the one end to protrude and the neck to be tight, that they will thread themselves. Possibly only the top couple of threads but again this doesn't make sense. No pun intended but just can't get my head around it. They are otherwise lovely pegs, very well made. I will use them for this ukulele, as I have already prepared the holes. But in the future I will have to look at planetary pegs specially made for ukulele, even though the heads are of carbon fibre and not ebony as in the case of these beautiful items. I paid a lot for them, and will use them, but for theabove-mentioned reasons doubt very much that I can order from Fiddlershop. Thanks nonetheless, Keven
