      O.K. folks, here is a well-made practical tool. It is designed to wind & unwind strings on a guitar - not to change tires on a NASCAR racer. Just put batteries (not included) in it, take it out of park, and pull the trigger - forward or reverse, your choice. Simple. It works. The end.

      Guitarists, DO NOT BUY THIS PIECE OF JUNK! I bought one today, and took it back to the store within an hour. Poor quality electrical contacts make it work intermittently. In other words, when you pull the trigger, it might come on, or it might not. The quality is so cheap to begin with. You feel more like you are holding a kid's toy in your hand instead of a serious tool that a professional musician or technician would use. Ernie Ball owes us an apology on this one! By the way, if yours does work, GO SLOW when putting on a string. If you tension it up too fast, and the string goes ka-pop, then it is your fault, not that of the device. You would be better off getting a string crank that can be adapted to an electric drill. Be careful though. Operator error can happen with that also. One more thing. They say that the four AA batteries are included. This is a flat-out lie. Avoid this thing at all costs!

        Comments about Ernie Ball PowerPeg Battery Powered String Winder:

        I love this product. It saves a lot of time and it gives you a professional looking job by winding the strings evenly. Some of the other reviewers complained about it winding the strings too tightly and breaking them. Obviously you don't use this product for the final tuning. Just snug them up and then turn the tuning machines by hand to do that. It winds fairly fast but not to the point that you can't release the trigger before it snaps the string. As far as battery use, I've only used it one time. So I couldn't say how long the batteries will last. Hopefully the new Energizer batteries I installed will last for several string changes.

            After reading the comments here I was reluctant, but my winder arrived in good working order. I was prepared with my own batteries but I could not find where the product info online stated that batteries were included. A real time and wrist saver when changing strings.

                If you have to work on several instruments at a time. It uses four double A batteries so after a few instruments it gets a little bulky but overall; it does the trick. Just push the trigger and it quickly winds the string. It is so fast that you have to be careful not to over-wind and pop the string. I am very happy with it and recommend it.

                        Only used twice. Along with the neck rest I bought and non-slip work mat made me feel like a repairman. Changing strings was sort of fun.

                        I was tired of using a hand crank to wind strings so I found this nifty device and thought, "Why not?!" I'll tell you why not: I was under the impression this was a battery operated string winder. This elaborately put together piece of plastic does not wind strings nor does it operate when introduced with batteries. I'm not sure what its purpose is but I'm hoping that someone more resourcefull can enlighten me.

                              this item was dead on arrival- or at least gravely injured. I took it apart and found a power supply lead had broken- a solder failure followed by a quality control failure. I resoldered it and it works now. It's nice to have if you change strings often but a DOA item still gets one star...

                                Just like working on a car, it's all about having the right tool to make the job easier. I own several guitars so unwinding the strings by hand was getting old. This is much faster! Only 4 stars because I just got it and don't know how the quality is or how long it will last before breaking. It would also be nice if it came with batteries.
