The "contraptions" I mention in the video can be found at these sites: http://www.pegheds.com/ (this brand is what I use on my good cello) and http://www.perfectionpegs.twofold.com... (I've seen these on many school instruments)...
I understand that Chuck Herren at PegHeads.com is a cellist and a mechanical engineer. Geared pegs is a great invention for fiddles of any kind. (Of course bass fiddles come with exposed gears). Thanks for the link.
YOU ROCK! YOU ROCK and YOU ROCK!!!! I want more videos, please!!!
Thanks so much for the video Nan! It really helps a novice like me who has never tuned with pegs! :)
I'm so happy that this helped you!
And I’m thankful to have this to review! You are the BEST!!
For STUCK pegs, there is a gadget called Peg Pal that is a plastic /composite block with holes that fit cello pegs, and another that fits violin/viola pegs. It is a life saver if you have pegs that refuse to move. I bought two and gave one to my teacher appeared to be very happy to have it.
I'm a bassist, I tune in 5ths, and I have a cello that I play a bit. It has pegs that are often sticky.
Thank you for using and loving Pegpal. All string teachers need to try it. It saves teaching time to undo stuck pegs. I use it daily and can’t imagine not having one.
Wonderful video - thanks so much - this is a life saver. Well it will save me many strings anyway.
I live and breathe cello everyday, and I want to share thoughts about it with you!
