Pegs Keep Slipping

Are your pegs slipping or not staying in tune? Here are a few tips for getting them to stay put.

  1. Most times you just have to push the peg into the pegbox WHILE turning.
  2. Re-winding the string so that the string is pinched against the pegbox wall will add some friction and reduce slipping.
  3. Lastly there are a variety of peg compounds, “peg dope” peg drops, or paste that can help pegs turn more smoothly or stay put.
