Don't hesitate to fit these pegs.

These Wittner Tuning Pegs are fabulous. They have no effect on the sound of the instrument and make tuning so easy and accurate. With a modern instrument where the peg box is cut to the correct taper fitting should be really simple, (although you may need a tapered hole router to help trim the hole for correct peg positioning. Trim and polish the ends with a Dremel Drill or similar). This is really easy and no where near as difficult as it sounds. Just go slow and steady. I fitted the pegs in my son's vintage violin with no trouble at all. Older hand made instruments with non standard tapers will need the holes re-cut but the effort is worth it. In this case it may be better to go for the larger diameter Tuning Pegs as I did (Wittner Violin Tuning Pegs 4/4 8,6) Any reasonably careful DIY person will be able to fit these pegs. As a bonus when you have the pegs fitted you can now fit a new high quality tail piece without the fine tuning adjusters (you won't need them anymore) that are deleterious to your violin's sound.

Works very well

I purchased those to fit my Yamaha YEV-104 strung with Infeld Red.

At the first glance, it looks like those pegs are too big for this violin.
It's however not the case, and those pegs fits very well on the YEV without the need to enlarge the peg holes.
Simply insert them, push them till the shaft is in correct position, mark on the peg where the outer edge of the peg box is, and get the dremel out !
The material is super easy to cut/grind and can later on be sanded to have a perfect finish.
It takes a bit of time, but it totally worth it.

I wanted to try those pegs to get rid of fine tuners on my tailpiece.
After an initial setup, it appears that indeed, it's super easy to tune the violin without fine tuners for G,D,A.
However for E, it's a bit tricky and I'm not sure that on the long run I would be able to skip the fine tuner for this string.
Even a very light turn of the peg can bring the E string slightly out of tune.
Infeld Red are coming with gold steel E, may be with another E string/another material this problem would be non existant.

My YEV and myself are very happy with this product !

Finally I can tune my violin with no effort

I like these tuning pegs a lot! They work very fine, the violin stays in tune a lot better than before with normal pegs and it's so easy to get it in tune.

el invento del siglo XXI

Acerté con el diámetro de las clavijas... 7,8, sólo he instalado 2 a presión, sin obra ni pegado, nada y se han quedado en su sitio, que fácil afinar ya y con precisión.... la primera y segunda cuerdas se quedan como estaban con microafinadores y sus clavijas originales y queda un conjunto muy curioso y quizás llamativo... La única pega que no he logrado saber es si puedo limar los 50mm que sobresalen las clavijas, pero no me arriesgaré y lo dejaré en manos de un luthier.
