Pegheds (offered here only in our cellos)
PegHeds are the original geared pegs, and are made in Winnsboro, SC by Chuck Herin. Once installed, all you need is a thumb and index finger to tune and the peg stays put. When humid summer weather causes friction pegs to swell and stick, or dry winter air causes shrinking and slippage, Pegheds will hold firmly. Prices vary with wood variety and style. Pegs must be ordered to fit your specific cello, or you may be able to have your own pegs retrofit in some instances. Nearly every cello here has Pegheds installed, and we highly recommend them. If you are wishing you could use a Posture Peg, please note the stubby C peg available, which is pictured in the product gallery. We no longer sell sets of PegHeds here, but do have them installed in cellos we sell. We love to promote and explain them. Go to PegHeds official website to order.
