    I was wondering if anyone here has used any geared pegs on their instruments. They look just like regular friction pegs that you can put into an acoustic violin, but there are gears inside the peg head that turn instead of the peg body. I’m pretty curious about these, I’d love to hear some opinions.

    If you are referring to Perfection pegs, my daughter has them on her cello and she loves them. We’ll be putting them on her violin the next time we take her violin in for a check up.

    What a great idea! The pegs on my violin are stuck and need to be unfrozen by a luthier. This might be a great opportunity to have geared pegs installed. I wonder how much they cost?

    I’ve seen them for between 50 and 80 bucks, but from what I understand, they can last pretty much for the life of the violin. I’m pretty tempted to give them a go.
