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.
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.
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!!
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.
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.
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.
