Wittner Finetune Peg on Hidersine Vivente Academy InstrumentTuning has never been easier:
Wittnerâ€™s Finetune pegs are a genuine revelation for player of all standards, with even seasoned professionals choosing to fit them to the very finest instruments. But these discreet, internally geared pegs make life so much simpler for students too!
Traditionally, most bowed instruments are tuned using wooden pegs, which are â€˜wedgedâ€™ into the wooden holes of the pegbox at the top of the instrument, with simple friction keeping them in place. When the strings needed to be tuned therefore, for the pegs to turn, they would have to be loosened, turned and then pushed back in. This process can take a little force and isnâ€™t the easiest or most accurate for inexperienced hands. Plus, over time the pegs can slip â€“ therefore losing their pitch â€“ or stick â€“ making them hard to turn and tune.
Any teacher or student will tell you the amount of time wasted at the beginning or during lessons getting their student instrument up to pitch, and having it stay there!
The clever, German-engineering employed in Wittnerâ€™s Finetune pegs allows the student or professional to turn the internally geared peg in a controlled way, without the main shaft of the peg ever losing contact with the pegbox. This means you can make tiny, incremental increases or decreases in pitch – just like tuning a guitar. Getting your instrument in tune, and keeping it there has literally never been easierâ€¦. So now your precious time can be spent on learning and playing â€“ not tuning.. and re-tuning.
