Where have these pegs been all of my life?

Even with the finest pegs installed by the greatest luthiers, humidity and dryness affect the pegs ability to turn smoothly in a friction, wood to wood setting. This has been a source of frustration to string players for years, especially cellists. These pegs turn effortlessly and bring the pitch up or down gradually. Losing my fine tuner on the tailpiece also enables my instrument to vibrate more freely.

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!!

Wittner Finetune Geared Pegs

The first set of pegs were installed in an older instrument and are working very well. The second set of pegs have not yet been installed, our Luthier has been ill.

Great Tuners

I've put these Wittner tuners on two violins. They work great. I used to hate tuning the violin, but now it's easy. A friend is now going to get a set because he was impressed by them.

What A Wonderful Alternative!

These are amazing. I plan to put them on my other violin eventually. The recommendation is to use a luthier for installation. I think this is wise for anyone who isn't particularly handy. Even for someone who is handy, just remember smaller holes are best. Some violins require a 1:30 reamer. The pegs are less resistant to friction going in. ALWAYS make the hole a bit smaller just in case.Keep trying the fit. Make them too large and you have a problem. Wittner has a fix if you slip up. It isn't a first option though, hence the luthier recommendation. If you have doubts use a luthier. After installing my first set I am confident to do it again, but I'm handy. If you aren't don't try it.
