How to remove Wittner geared pegs

April 9, 2010 at 3:43 PM


I have Wittner geared pegs installed on one of my violins, which I can live without, for a try.  I love the new pegs, but are encountering problems removing them from this I-can-live-without violin to my favorite one.  Please help....


Thanks a lot in advance,

Perhaps if you post your question in the Discussion section you might get a better response.  There are some Luthiers that are frequently kind enough to respond to this type of post.  Normal pegs cannot be moved from one violin to another as they must be fitted.  I'm not sure about the geared ones but I suspect the same is true for them as well.
