The violin is made up of many different components that contribute to its playability - and while not every part may seem that important to a newcomer, experienced violinists know that every part has an important role to play, and that includes the pegs. In fact, the quality of your violin pegs can significantly impact the instrument's ability to stay in tune. The good news is that first-class violin pegs are very easy to come by on today's music market, and they're often quite affordable. On this page alone you'll discover violin pegs from renowned stringed instrument brands like Perfection and The String Centre.
The right violin pegs should turn smoothly with great adhesion, not slip and properly fit (evenly with the side of the peg box) - this can be said for any model, whether you're playing a student model or a professional one. In this catalog, you'll find that certain violin pegs are more affordable than others, but that doesn't mean they aren't capable of doing their job well. Take for example, The String Centre Violin Peg Set (4). Available for 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 3/4 and 4/4 violin sizes, these top-selling violin pegs are exceptionally crafted from ebony and very generously priced.
Now, if you're a student violinist who really wants to make a big upgrade to your instrument, feast your eyes on the Perfection Planetary Violin Pegs. Another popular seller, these pegs are similar to the ones on a guitar or double bass in that they are gear-driven. Professionally installed by a luthier, Planetary Violin Pegs eliminate the need for fine tuners and allow you to tune your instrument precisely and quickly.
At this point we'll leave you to do some browsing of your own, but it's probably obvious to you now that this is definitely the place to be for new violin pegs. No matter how big or small, there is no part of your violin that should go underappreciated. Swiping out your violin pegs for a set of new ones can enhance your performance (and your enjoyment) by a fair margin, and any one of the peg sets in this section would make a great addition to your music maker.
