Great pegs and great service

The pegs arrived quickly and in excellent condition. The instructions that come with the pegs are not very thorough, but I had read in my earlier research how to install the pegs. I had to ream out all of the holes a little bit to be able to insert the pegs into the proper position, but this was simple to do and I could then push the pegs into place. It did not take but a few minutes longer to put on new strings with the geared pegs than it takes me to replace strings on regular pegs. With the geared pegs, I was able to remove all four fine tuners from the tailpiece which seemed to open up the sound a bit on the violin. These pegs were installed on my father's old high school violin (at least 90 - 100 years old) because the peg holes were so worn that It was next to impossible to keep the pegs from slipping. I had been quoted about $300 to put in new pegs (not geared pegs). For $65 and a couple of hours of my time, I now have a family memento that I can enjoy playing. And, just to let you know, I am a 72-year-old woman who took up the fiddle about 5 or 6 years ago, so not an expert by any means. Thanks for the great service and a great product.

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.
