Tammy: Chuck, tell me, what kind of tuners are you installing?
Chuck: Well, my dear, these are patented, 4:1 geared planetary Peghed tuners (pegheds.com)! Similar to the Knilling Perfection tuners used on violin family instruments.
Tammy: Oh! Are they difficult to install?
Chuck: No more difficult than others. As long as I don’t get carried away with this reamer! I ream the hole to the proper size and thread the tuners in. They come in LH threads and RH threads.
Tammy: So, why do so many of our customers prefer Peghed tuners?
Chuck: Because they’re easy to tune with and they have that old-timey violin peg appearance.
Tammy: So, if a customer wants Peghed tuners as opposed to Waverly planetary geared tuners, what should they ask for?
Chuck: They should buy or order a “Vintage” Chuck Lee banjo as they come with Peghed tuners .
Tammy: What if a customer wants Pegheds on a banjo which has another kind of tuners? What options do they have?
Chuck: They can contact Chuck Herin at Pegheds.com as he has tuners in several sizes. Peghed tuners can be used on guitars and other stringed instruments. He makes a cool 5th string tuner for banjos as well. Chuck Herin is the designer and patent holder on all the Peghed and Perfection tuners.
Tammy: This concludes this interview. Thanks Chuck! You look a little tired. Maybe you should take a day off :).
Chuck: I think I just used up my words for the day.
