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.

I have installed the Wittner Finetune pegs on a fiddle for me and one for my wife. The installation isn't difficult at all. A caliper is handy for measuring your wooden pegs, to make sure you order the right size. They are held in my friction, so you just push them in and then trim the ends--really like wooden pegs. I expected the tuning to be really like tuning a mandolin, but it's a bit different. Possibly mandolin strings are less stretchy, but I find that it's a little fussy to get the strings right on with the pegs. So I still use the finetuners on the tailpiece a bit. Way less than before, but it's worth it to keep the tailpiece fine tuners. Where the geared tuners shine in if you want to go to another tuning. For example, I often raise the G-string to A when I am playing in the key of D. It's a snap with the geared tuners. That's a primary benefit. My wife's experience is different. She loves the geared tuners because she struggles with the fancy footwork required with wooden pegs--twist it out a bit but not too far, get the string tuned while pushing the peg back in, but not too far, etc. She is a big fan. I have two fiddles and plan to add the Wittner geared tuners to the other fiddle soon. My experience has been totally positive.
easy ordering from wide selection of products, prompt delivery, secure packaging. love these pegs: good feedback from pegs, precision tuning, easy installation (by following included instructions). well supported product: Wittner help desk from Germany responded (to my email question about their product) within one day! I do not have experience with any other geared pegs but this set is a winner for me.
These pegs are awesome. No sticking and so much easier to tune. Thank you fiddleshop for your outstanding customer service. Above and beyond!!!
The Wittner Finetune Geared Pegs were installed on my 15.5” Fiddlerman Concert Viola when I purchased it. They are very good tuners and tuning my wonderful viola a cinch. I have issues using regular pegs and these geared fine tuners by Wittner are fantastic. Fiddlershop was fantasic to deal with and I am 100% satisfied with the Fiddlershop in this transaction.
Best thing since sliced bread! I've used them since they first came on the market & I always keep them in stock to put on my students' instruments. You folks have a good price for them.
