Any fiddle players with experience using geared pegs?
I live in northern New England where the winters are long and cold. As a result of heating with forced hot air the inside of our house is very dry (humidity in the 30-40% range). It’s a real pain to keep my fiddle tuned. Pegs get loose, strings unwind, etc. A luthier suggested using geared pegs instead of the more common wooden ones held in by friction.
Has anyone out there tried them?
