Five-Star Banjo Tuning Pegs

About This Item

The most famous name in banjo pegs. Exclusively from Stewart-MacDonald. For over 35 years Five-Star® pegs are the choice of players and builders for quality and reliable tuning.

The 4:1 ratio planetary gearing is a compact traditional design that provides fast, accurate tuning.

Machined brass gear case and shafts, brass ring gear, steel pinion gears and sealed lubrication ensure durability for long life. The handsome removeable pearlescent plastic knobs have adjustable tension screws for the right feel.

Five-Star pegs fit standard 3/8" (10.00mm) diameter pegholes, and include threaded hex bushings with peghead washers. They fit 7/16" to 3/4" (11.11mm to 19.05mm) peghead thicknesses.

Our Five-Star 5th String Peg is also available.

Pas mal du tout!

(Customer's Reviews)

Il fallait que je change les mécaniques du mon open back. C'est fait et je me demande pourquoi je ne les avais pas changés avant. C'est par hasard que je suis tombé sur ce site de lutherie bien loin de chez moi. Malgré les frais de transport, le tarif est intéressant. J'avais un doute sur les délais ; ceux-ci ont été des plus raisonnables. Je recommande donc ce site, tant pour la qualité du produit que j'ai acquis (des pegs) que pour le professionnalisme de son équipe.


Not the best looking

(Customer's Reviews)

No doubt these tuners will outlast me, but the knobs/buttons are over-sized and cheap looking plastic. I installed the Five-Stars on an inexpensive banjo, but would not use them on a vintage or high-end instrument unless better knobs could be sourced first.

For a Silver Bell tenor banjo I needed planet tuning pegs, and for the first time I ordered the Five-Star Banjo Tuning Pegs. Wow! They are really good, because they work so very very good! And equipped with these Amber swirl plastic knobs they are excellent.
