Replacement Parts for Orchestral Strings
A cello peg is what holds the strings in the peg box of the instrument. A very critical piece to your cello's construction, they can be made from a variety of materials - the most popular being ebony, rosewood and boxwood. When you adjust the pegs, it loosens or tightens the string, which in turn changes the pitch produced by the string. If a peg is functioning properly, it should turn smoothly and hold consistently. Sticking or slipping is an indication that the pegs may need to be changed out. Whether you're in a situation where you need to replace an entire set of cello pegs, or simply need to switch out one or two, you'll find what you're looking for in this section.
Before selecting pegs, you should have a firm grasp of how they work. On a cello, there are four pegs and each one has a string threaded through a hole in the center. They are wider on one side and gradually taper off. As you turn and press the pegs into the holes in the peg box, they basically get "stuck" which keeps the strings on your cello in tune. When loosened, the pitch of the string lowers; when tightened, the pitch raises.
Now that you have an understanding of how pegs work, you have to determine which ones are going to suit your needs and playing style.
