Five-Star® pegs are made by Stewart-MacDonald in the USA. For over 30 years our famous pegs have been chosen by banjomakers for many of the world's finest instruments. 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.
