In this video I teach you how to soap the pegs of your violin or viola, so tuning will be easier and faster.
It’s easiest to combine soaping the pegs with string replacement. New strings are easier to place than used strings. Taking the strings off your violin and placing them back can be a ‘shock’ for your string and shorten the lifetime. Make it a habit to soap your pegs every time you replace your strings.
I hope with this help you can make your pegs run smoothly again :).
