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.

Replaced a set of what I suspect were import knock off tuners. Five-Stars are much more stable and smoother. Very well made!

Great tuners !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

keeping/using them for spares as I "modified" my "FB"- V clone to use "old style" planetary geared banjo tuners .Getting used to the "4:1" tuning ratio.. They lighten the headstock mass to keep "neck dive" to a minimum.

My favorite geared tuners for old time banjos

I've been using the 5-Star Planets for years. For my old-time open backs, they are a less brash, less clunky alternative to the others on the market. I would, however like to be able to order them with the buttons I prefer for a particular project. As it is, I have a drawer full of the pearloid buttons that are standard.

I replaced the factory tuners on my Fender FB-54, which were jerky and hard to get in tune. The Five-Stars fit perfectly, and are smooth as silk.

My favourite Planetary tuners

Verified Buyer


Superb build quality. Smooth gearing. Very reliable. Fits a wide range of peg-head thicknesses, 12mm to 16mm. Dished washer protects the finish. Small diameter string post for good string-lock. Room for several neat wraps of the string. Good range of alternative buttons available. As a builder and repairer I get to see the competition and Stew Mac beats them all.

A replacement for the original broken tuners on a genuine Dobro five string Guitar/Banjo was needed. This instrument is now back in the hands of my customer, delighted at the result.
