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.

I just had carpal tunnel surgery done and have been wanting to get one of these. I finally got it and yes it works! I dont know why people think it is too slow? It is quick for me and if it went too fast people would pop strings or hurt themselves. If it every breaks I will buy another!
It has forward and reverse and fights bass and guitar machine heads.
Very well made.
I got mine for cheap and it helps a lot.

  • Good idea

Cons

  • Can Break A String

Best Uses

  • Detuning
  • Picking Up String Slack

Comments about Ernie Ball PowerPeg Battery Powered String Winder:

I like it alot, it's easy on the hands as I have 7 guitars and find it really takes some of the stress out of the string changing process, fits and stays on the tuning peg pretty well.

I use it now to detune and pick up slack with a new string, not tune to pitch. The problem I found with it is its speed varies alot depending on the batteries, and with full batteries its fast.

Easy, if you're not prepared, to break a string, so you need to be careful with it - at least until you are used to it. The one string I broke was a high E, and the bottom length flew 17 feet , straight through a floating bridge and across the room.

I hope this review helps anyone avoid that with the tuner, which is a pretty good tool all in all. On the other hand its up to the buyer as to whether they feel they can use it safely, I'm on the fence about recommending it.

    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.

        Comments about Ernie Ball PowerPeg Battery Powered String Winder:

        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.

              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.

                      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.

                          Overall, a great tool for your accessory pouch.
                          Well, I've owned this for over 2 years now, restrung several of my guitars muiltiple times, and have never had a problem using it. Saw the other two negative reviews, but that only goes to prove a lemon can be produced asnytime, I supppose. I've not had any problems with it, hence, the reason I recommend it. I'm sure I wouldn't feel this way if I had problems with it like the other two said they have. But, my experiece with it has been positive. I sure like the forward & reverse options.
                          I gave it a 9 because I don't feel anything manmade is perfect.
                          Good value, cut my stringing down to about half the time of previous efforts.
