Hello musicians! I have a rather unusual question for anyone who can answer. I have some boxwood pegs in my violin that I really love and I just began to wonder how long pegs typically last before just straight up wearing out to the point of unusable, or even perhaps if pegs are recommended to be replaced in a lifetime.
They are made of boxwood, so I doubt the maple holes will wear out as much as the pegs themselves. I had them put in about five years ago, and they were brand new. I just got curious what to expect for their lifespan typically?
Thanks and happy practicing.Tweet
