About Ardsley Peg Drops:
The first simple cure for slipping and squeaking pegs. One drop will stop a slipping peg without removing it from instrument. This is the original Ardsley Peg Drops, not an imitation!
Peg Drops is a very cheap, quick, and easy fix for string instruments that easily and often fall out of tune. The source of the problem is pegs that don't fit properly into the allotted holes in the peg box caused by either poor craftsmanship or a gradual wearing away over years of use. Rather than going through the expensive process of having pegs refitted, The Original Peg Drops by Ardsley have always been a solution.
Why Peg Drops?:
Peg Drops applied to the pegs allows them to stick more securely in the peg box so that they do not slip while tuning and allows for less frequent adjustment. This solution is very effective and a much more conservative approach than having the pegs refitted.
One thing to remember when using Ardsley Peg Drops is not to use too much. Excessive dope can cause pegs to be too sticky which can be just as frustrating as pegs that slip. You really only need a drop or two (the small bottle goes a long way) and immediately wipe off any extra.
