W.E. Hill Peg Composition (Made in England) is the best known compound for keeping pegs from sticking. This is what we use at Fiddlershop on all of our newly installed/adjusted pegs. Surprisingly this works a lot better than other peg compounds we have tested. In easier words; Fiddlerman recommended!!
"The original Hill composition for pegs which have ceased to turn smoothly. - To be applied sparingly"

The experience through Fiddlershop, as always, was great! As for this peg comp, I've gone through 3 or 4 of these over the years, and it always does exactly what it's supposed to do. Hence the reason I continue to purchase it when needed! Great product, backed by great service at Fiddlershop!
I say decent because I wanted to exercise caution and may have been too cautious it did well enough to stop the obnoxious popping in my pegs that usually causes my stings to want to tune a step too high. but not wanting to end up having troubles which I could see happening if you apply too much I might not have gotten enough on a couple of my pegs. Otherwise it is a good product I'll just have to pay attention on my next string change.
You are always prompt on getting my order to me. I really like your personal touch of adding a fiddlershop cloth with my orders. Thank You!
My pegs were sometimes popping out when I'd change environments and try to tune it. Or when tuning the nobs wouldn't turn smoothly, they'd jump a bit. So, i changed the strings, and as i took each peg out, I covered it with this stuff, put it back in the hole, spun in around ( to coat the hole), then put more of this on the peg ( again ) and then put the string on. Did that for all four and everything is much smoother.
