Wittner Finetuning Pegs

  • £17.50 - 110 + postage: please scroll to bottom of page to order

Features:

  • Effortless and fast tuning, with enhanced precision: a transmission ratio of 8.5 - 1 compared to ordinary pegs, eliminating the need for fine tuners
  • Made of "high tech" composite material and light alloy: selecting Wittner pegs assists in the conservation of natural resources
  • Self-inhibiting mechanism inside the peg; the string will not lose tension. It will also be much more resistant to losing pitch after knocks to the case, or during changes in climate and humidity, which is particularly beneficial to travelling musicians
  • Very little peg and peghole maintenance required: the shaft of the peg does not spin in the peghole like a standard peg, therefore there is no friction to cause erosion of the pegbox wall
  • Appearance of standard wooden pegs
  • Less effort to use than standard pegs, which is of great benefit to players suffering from arthritis or repetitive strain injury

"Dear Mr. Wittner,

I am delighted by the opportunity to express to you and your company how incredibly pleased I am with your product.  Robert Cauer of Los Angeles, a longtime caretaker of my instruments, has installed them so far on my three violins - the 1720 Stradivarius, the Pressenda and the violin which I practice on during vacation in extreme humidity in places like the Caribbean and dry climates such as the mountains of Colorado.  This has solved my problems with pegs sticking and slipping which plagued me! I also feel that your pegs are saving my arm from strain and the onset of physical problems caused by wresting with sticking or slipping pegs.  It is so delightfully easy to tune my violin onstage before performing a major concerto with orchestra.  I am a huge fan and am spreading the word about this wonderful product wherever I go just because I like them so much.  Thank you for making them. 

Very best,
Elizabeth Pitcairn"

"The Wittner gear pegs are a must have for any student or professional string player. Nowadays, the audience expects a performance to be uninterrupted by incessant tuning. These pegs turn exactly the same in humid and dry climates. Some professionals with very expensive instruments are changing to these pegs to preserve the original scroll and the holes. The fact is nothing is moving up in the scroll against wood. Thereby, the scroll is aged as little as it would be with no playing at all. I estimate that for a student with pegs fitted not as perfectly as on top professional instruments, the Wittner fine-tuning pegs can save ten minutes in tuning time at the beginning of a half hour lesson. I wish that these pegs were around when I was young." 

I LOVE these pegs. They are beautiful, sensual to the touch and turn marvelously.

As a complement to the Wittner fine-tuning pegs, I recommend the Wittner tailpiece above all others. For the maximum resonance of any stringed instrument, the lightness of the tailpiece and its flexibility to vibrate is paramount, that's why I use the Wittner tailpiece on all my cellos.
