Five-Star 5th String Peg

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.

HUGE step up from a Friction Peg for minimal price

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I'm a guitar player who bought and loved an older Silvertone banjo. However, that friction fifth peg drove me bonkers. If you have one, you probably know what I mean.

I bought this one, not wanting to put a bunch of money in the banjo, just wanting to make it playable, along with item # 5017 to replace the tired original cheap tuners. For about $26 and some elbow grease, it's like a have a new banjo. It stays in tune, retunes when I change into a new tuning, and is just overall much more fun.

When I held it in my hand the first time I knew that this was a high quality product, in looks and feel! I installed it on a beginners banjo for a friend and was impressed with how well it stays in tune with even a new string from the start! I Highly recommend this product to anyone!

I like the way this gizmo works but some Banjo's just can't take this much improvement. The tuner hit the support rod on my PearelyJo [pictured]. Talk about Buzz! A friction tuner worked out OK. I plan to use this fancy job on the Banjo I'm putt'n t'gether in the shop.

Great Peg

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Used this to fix a friend's banjo. He had an old friction peg that slipped and slipped. One thing worth mentioning though is that this thing is pretty big. It looks a little out of place on a smaller necked banjo and I had to trim the end of the peg with a dremmel so the alignment was correct. The end of it came up against the truss rod...Still a great peg!

Replaced some older tuners with these and they really solved my slipping problem. Solid and smooth

I have used stew mac hardware on my banjos and found it to be the best value for the money.
