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.

(Customer's Reviews)

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!
