I have a very annoying problem where my pegs are going slightly out of tune after as little as 30 seconds of playing piece. It's most obvious if the piece is virtuosic in some way, requiring fortissimo playing, double stops, or pizzicato. I've tried adding peg grease, but this does not solve the problem. I've had this problem with several violins, and I'm so desperate I am now considering the Knilling perfection planetary pegs. Has anyone tried these pegs? In a perfect world, I'd love a violin that won't go flat, despite heavy pizzicato and heavy playing.
