I am an adult beginner and sometimes fine tuning my violin becomes very difficult because the pegs do not rotate smoothly. I have already tried chalk to tighten the pegs when they become loose and have tried lubricants when the pegs become sticky, but this not always does the job. Of course, one solution to this problem would be to install fine tuners on all the strings. However, I have noticed that most professional violinists use only one fine tuner precisely on the E string.
My specific question is : Are there any disadvantages in having fine tuners insatalled on the four strings ? Wouid these disadvantages explain why most violinists only use one fine tuner?
