The wittner finetune geared pegs, a “non-slip” peg solution for your violin or viola. For proper sizing, check out our infographic. Wittner finetune geared pegs are measured by diameter at ring.

Wittner Finetune Peg Set includes 4 pegs

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.

Excellent Pegs!

No longer will I need to fiddle with friction pegs. Makes tuning a breeze. Due to the 8:1 gearing ratio, it take little force to turn the pegs and allows tuning while playing.

Wittner fine tune pegs

I installed these in 2 of my fiddles. I love mine, no more tuning problems. Also makes playing in different cross tunings so easy !


My absolute go-to for pegs now.

These are great finetuner pegs. I've acquired a number of elderly compromised-integrity violins/violas that I'm slowly restoring and these are so awesome. They are true to size and easy to fit and finish. They string quick and easy. For ongoing play, they hold tune very well and fine tuning is a breeze. I'm probably going to buy another set soon (that will be my third set). I love getting the fine tuners off the tailpiece to help decrease weight and avoid the threat of those things scratching the dickens out of the violin/viola faces. Several of the touch-ups I've had to do on these during restoration are due to tailpieces affixed with wire and/or fine tuners all grinding into the violin faces while in disuse. So as a gift to the instruments which will most likely outlive me, I am providing the best quality I can think of (these Wittner Finetuner Pegs) to avoid those issues long-term. I can't speak to the other brands that make these types of geared pegs, but I have used Wittner products for nearly 50 years and thus far, the pegs have been very solid on two (soon to be three) instruments.

The best geared tuners for violin

Great overall experience.


Amazingly wonderful!

I was somewhat apprehensive about trying to install these in a very old violin but because we live in a very remote part of our state, I had to try to do it myself. I watched the youtube videos on how to do it. Just be very careful not to ream out too much at a time ......go very slowly and check and recheck often. It was not that hard at all.....the hardest part was cutting the ends off! My husband has recently become disabled and was completely unable to tune his violin, but now he can do it with no trouble at all AND it stays in tune much better. These things are simply amazing and I highly recommend them!!
