Woodland Strings is proud to offer a set of premium peg compounds for violin, viola and cello. Hand-crafted in small batches, these compounds are suitable for professional shop, luthier, and player use. While there is no single "one-size-fits-all" peg compound appropriate for every situation, the Woodland Strings set consists of 3 separate, individual formulations.
This listing is for the #1 FIRM formula only. The additional formulas are available individually or as a complete set, please check my other listings on Handcrafted.net. To determine which formula would work best for you, check the descriptions below:
#1 - FIRM - For badly slipping pegs. This can be used on any instrument, but works especially well for cellos that are exposed to extremely dry air in the winter months, particularly in school environments.
#2 - MEDIUM - An all-purpose peg compound. Provides a good balance of grip and lubrication for many situations.
#3 - SOFT - For sticking, heavily "clicking" pegs. Particularly useful in more humid climates in the summer months, or for anytime an easily-turned peg is desired.
All three formulations can be blended on the peg in any combination desired, feel free to experiment. Each 1" diameter disc of compound is enough to last for years, and can easily pay for itself after just one use. The #1 FIRM compound is priced at $13.90 which includes USPS Ground Advantage shipping. If interested in purchasing additional formulations (#2, #3 or the complete set,) those are listed on Handcrafted.net as well. All of my compounds are packaged in recycled Kraft brown paper canisters and shipped via USPS First Class Package with tracking number. Made in the USA.
