About time too!
Brian Voce 03.12.2017
Thank goodness violins are beginning to catch up with the modern world. For so long twisting a 'stick in a hole' has been the crude tuning method used on Violins, Violas etc. These Wittner Tuning Pegs make tuning so easy and accurate. Very easy to fit to a standard modern violin and with care and a router easy to fit to an older 'non standard instrument'. (I had to re cut the holes to the correct taper in my son's vintage violin). I realise the 'traditionalists' will 'huff and puff' at using these tuning pegs on an old quality violin but they have no effect on the sound quality of the instrument, make tuning much much easier, and allow you to fit a quality tailpiece without those sound altering string adjusters, so what's not to like?

No more finetuners
BrianOQR 10.10.2018
I love these pegs, and have all of my violins fitted with them. It is a bit scary as they are mechanical mean if they stop working, i am out of luck. It is too bad that they look a little too plastic but mostly people don't even notice. Functionally it works amazing, my violin is almost always in tune and tuning is extremely easy. Also the fact that I can use a standard tail piece without the volume reduction of other fine tuners. If you look at it from a technical point of view, the pegs have pretty much 0 effect on sound so it makes sense that the fine tuning happens in the pegs so the sound is 100% your original violin.

l'accord parfait
Philippe4033 29.04.2017
J'ai acheté ces chevilles pour remplacer celle d'un oud avec lequel je m'arrachais les cheveux pour réussir à l'accorder. La mise en place est d'une simplicité enfantine : il suffit d'enlever l'ancienne cheville et d'insérer la nouvelle. Pas besoin de colle ou quoi que ce soit : le diamètre externe de la nouvelle cheville se bloque comme le font les chevilles traditionnelle et la partie interne de la nouvelle cheville tournera avec en plus la démultiplication.
L'accord est super fin et très agréable et l'opération qui prenait 2 h avant prend 10s maintenant (et oui, il y a 11 chevilles sur un oud)

Qualité allemande, précision suisse : que du bonheur

Deberían venir de serie en todos los violines
Tato 02.12.2022
Si los puristas no quieren cambiar la estética de sus violines cambiando sus afinadores por otros tipo las clavijas de guitarra, al menos deberían cambiar a este tipo de clavijas que hacen que la afinación sea infinitamente más sencilla y se evitarían usar afinaprimas.
Las coloqué yo mismo porque tenía la herramienta necesaria, pero si no eres un manitas mejor acude a un luthier. Al hacer el pedido tienes que tener en cuenta la medida del ancho del agujero donde van a ir instaladas, ya que se venden en dos grosores distintos. Por los demás, una vez instaladas son una maravilla, guardando la afinación y siendo muy facil afinar, como si de una guitarra se tratase.
