I bought this for a Silvertone banjo I was restoring. It fit the hole and works well.

well made peg

This peg is made to close tolerances and works well. Not all banjos are right for geared 5th pegs and this works well for its intended purpose. A little amber shellac on the button makes it color match the remaining older buttons.

I purchased this peg to replace a missing one on my friend's banjo that I am doing a restoration on. It was a perfect fit, and works well.

We had an inexpensive student banjo break the 5th string peg.... simple enough to remove the old one and press in the new one ... thanks..

Does the Job

Had an Old Yard Sale Cheapo 5-string I wanted to try as an Open back for Clawhammer....this non-geared Grover fit the bill just fine. I removed the Plastic knob and screw, and took an appropriate sized hollow-shaft nut driver and gently tapped in flush w/ side of neck. I didn't want the look of a geared peg, and this did the trick.
