bigchuck Viola pegs slipping (19) RE: Viola pegs slipping 05 Dec 03

Before you try anything else, look closely at the hole in the peg that the string goes through. As pegs and pegbox gradually wear, that hole gets closer and closer to the inside edge of the pegbox. Eventually, it gets close enough for the string to actually rub against the pegbox, making it impossible to seat the peg fully, no matter how much goop you put on it. I usually (I maintain a fleet of rental violins for the local music store) just drill a new hole inboard of the old one (and at 90 degrees to it) which solves the problem for some time.
