I am teaching myself to play violin. When I bought my new outfit, the pegs were super loose! I had to really push them hard to stay in place, and then do all my tuning with the fine tuners. After a few drops of this stuff, the pegs are much more usable. I think I used it 2 or 3 times (whenever the pegs would get loose again), and now the pegs seem to have set in well.

I bought the Original Peg Drops by Ardsley because I practice violin every day at

least twice a day. I wore out the pegs on my student violin with frequent change

of strings that wore out, so I felt the peg drops would be a good investment for

the care of my new orchesta violin.

What I like the best about the drops is while my new violin is "settling" there isn't

a wood on wood grinding noise while tuning, and the drops aren't like a glue.

I hope this is helpful.

I ordered a bottle of this stuff because my violin's pegs wouldn't stay in place, so I couldn't tune it. Once applied, the pegs stayed wherever I twisted them to without being sticky. You might say this liquid is much too expensive, but its effect cannot be achieved by common household materials. Besides, a single bottle will last years.

Just spend the couple of dollars. Think of it this way: without being properly tuned, you cannot continue playing your instrument.

I have a cheaper violin and when I say cheap I mean less than two hundred dollars so pegs that slip are a common and very annoying problem for me. My understanding is all pegs slip but mine just slip a little more often than anybody else. These are really simple to use and these drops help maintain my strings from coming out of tune so often and it works almost like a glue (but its not a glue). In time the pegs will eventually slip of course and the drops will wear out but the price of these drop are worth it to keep from having to tune so often. I am new to the violin so these drops help out a lot especially since I am self teaching. Overall I would say these peg drops are a must have and I always plan to have some and makes my violin learning more simple.

I bought these for my wife who is a musician. She recently attended a clinic on instrument repair where a highly accomplished rep from Luthier advised her that Peg Drops are a good temporary fix, but that a product called Peg Dope is a better solution because it contains both wax and pumice which prevent wood-on-wood. Peg Drops, apparently, are good for a temporary solution but ultimately they can be bad for your instrument. Anyway - that's what I heard, so I'm passing it along. I hope people will comment if they have more (or contrary) information.

I am new to the violin but I found these drops to work very well when tuning the wooden pegs on it.Didnt think I would need it when I bought my violin but it is a good thing I did.Its annoying to have your pegs slip out of place and having to tune constanly.

the pegdrops work well - too well, actually! i relied heavily on them for awhile as a violin teacher who tunes over 100 instruments daily. but after breaking a few peg boxes trying to loosen pegs, we tossed these drops. guess there's no wonder about why seasoned luthiers dislike the drops! they're actually quite dangerous!

try using rosin, graphite or peg dope on the pegs instead. (i actually prefer rosin to the other solutions)

or take your instrument to a shop and have the pegs fitted.
