Five-Star 5th String Banjo Peg

About This Item

Our popular right-angle peg with string post, featuring 14:1 gear ratio for smooth, precise tuning.

The 5-Star 5th string peg is a high quality traditional worm-gear design. The pearlescent plastic knob matches our Five-Star Banjo Tuning Pegs.

This tuner requires a tapered peghole in the banjo neck (see our 5th Peg Reamer). Splines and a small “fin” hold the peg firmly and prevent rotation in the neck. Glue is not necessary in a correctly tapered hole.

I had a really bad friction tuner on my 5th string for the longest time. It was getting to the point where it was unusable. Finally got around to replacing it and I found that this one did the trick, and I don't have to worry about really delicate movements setting everything out of tune anymore. Good price, nothing fancy, but reliable.

This is my go to brand of tuners. I dozens per year. Plating and mechanisms are very good along with a nice selection of buttons. Be sure you do not pound directly in the button or the post when installing or you will break/jam the tuner. Get yourself a thread spool or a block of wood with a hole and put it over the post for protection. -Companion Banjos

Bought a used banjo which needed a 5th string tuner. Arrived quickly and works perfectly. I was able to install myself with help from information and instructions on the Stewmac website. Thanks.

Purchased these tuners to replace the old frozen ones on a banjo that I'm restoring. Nothing fancy just a good little parking lot banjo and now I don't have to think about the tuners...they just as it should be.
