Five-Star 5th String Banjo Peg

About This Item

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.

Five-Star 5th String Banjo Peg (Chrome color)

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Got this peg to replace a broken one on an Odessa banjo...
It is a smooth working, and nice looking piece. The only thing that would have made it better... is if there was an all-chrome colored option (knob color also)... to match the rest of the hardware... but the customer was just fine with it

This 5-Star geared tuner replaced a broken tuner on my longneck. Stewart-MacDonald service was great - the tuner arrived a couple of days after I ordered it online, and I installed it in time for a gig that afternoon. Thanks, Stew-Mac!

The old peg was very touchy and the new one is smooth and can be adjusted in very small amounts.

5-star fifth string tuner

By
(Customer's Reviews)


These tuners are good. I have one problem. I never leave the button that comes with it and always have to shorten the screw to prevent it from bottoming out before it snugs up. I'd love it If the stock buttons were the same height as the other available options. Seems like it should be an easy fix.
