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.

Quality tuners, could be better looking.

Like several other reviewers, I like these a lot from a functional standpoint but I think the buttons are downright unattractive. Not thrilled with the prospect of spending $20+ for a set of nice looking replacement buttons. Should have bought the Waverlys in the first place instead of trying to save a few $$ with the Five-Star.

In 1982 I put a set of 5-stars on my Kasuga Lawsuit banjo, My daughter got a lower end Ibanez, so I gave her my old set, and replaced the set from 1982. These things are great, easy to tune and stay in pitch. - Wayne in Omaha

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

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.
