Details

Our popular right-angle peg with string post, featuring 14:1 gear ratio for smooth, precise tuning.

The 5-Star 5th string peg is a high quality traditional worm-gear design. The pearlescent plastic knob matches our Five-Star Banjo Tuning Pegs.

This tuner requires a tapered peghole in the banjo neck (see our 5th Peg Reamer). Splines and a small “fin” hold the peg firmly and prevent rotation in the neck. Glue is not necessary in a correctly tapered hole.

Gibson friction peg replacement

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Bought one these years ago but never installed it because I didn't want to ream my 1960's Gibson mahogany neck.
I just started teaching, (and tuning more) lately. and decided to try the 5 Star that's been laying around, before ordering a Waverly.

Much to my surprise, it pushed right into the existing hole, with only hand pressure.

Seems that even though the nominal size is larger, the splines are deeper and it just softly seated in the mahogany. Even the big positioning spline

I may eventually upgrade to waverly just because it looks more vintage, but for now, the 5 star holds tune perfectly and operates smoothly, what more could you ask. My old and aged Gibson peg slipped right on too, so the look isn't too modern.

No more cheap tuners

I finally took the plunge and quit buying cheap tuners and do not regret it. Smooth as silk, the engraving adds a quality touch and the StewMac service is always a plus, thanks!

Agreat tuner at a bargain price

At first I was a little skeptical, but once installed the skepticism disappeared instantly. Light years better than the cheap tuner that was original equipment

Nice Tuner

I bought this to replace a missing 5th string tuner on an Epiphone 5-string banjo. This unit is slightly oversize, so provided a good, snug fit. The tuner action is very smooth and positive. A great product!

Old standby

I have used 5 Star tuners on my banjos for years. They are smooth and accurate with no slipping. I only wish they would come with less tacky knobs so I would not have to buy ivoroid knobs seperately every time.

a good general-purpose 5th string tuner

nicely engineered & reasonably priced. worth spending the extra money to buy one of the alternate buttons that are available for this type - the standard buttons are a bit clunky.

Replaced the old tuner with no problem. A little adjustment on the angle and hole size but with little or no problem. Smooth and easy to tune now. I recomend this to all.
