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.

Perfect Fit & Function

By

Verified Buyer


Purchased these tuners to replace the old frozen ones on a banjo that I'm restoring. Nothing fancy just a good little parking lot banjo and now I don't have to think about the tuners...they just as it should be.

This is a very reasonably priced, well made tuner. Great gear ratio and a smooth feel.

I promptly received tuner, and installed as directed; brought my 25 year old banjo back to life.
Works great thanks.

good solid construction

I have used these on other projects, so I knew what to expect: Professional grade solid tuners. The buttons are functional but look kind of cheesy, so I suggest ordering some nice replacement buttons to go with the tuners. There are several options to choose from, but I went with the ivory looking tuners.

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

By

Verified Buyer


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
