Produced in small batches for limited release. A set of four (4) Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume "Alard" model pegs that resemble the pegs adorned upon the 1715 "Alard, Baron Knoop" violin by Antonio Stradivari and among other historical violins.
Hellweg & Cloutier's replica Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume "Alard" model classical instrument carved pegs for violin, viola, and cello.
Installation: We highly recommend you consult a skilled luthier to install pegs on your violin, viola, or cello! It is a skilled process to fit pegs to a classical instrument that requires highly specialized training, skill, and precision machined tools in order to produce the proper fit and function to ensure generational longevity for your instrument. The pegs arrive much longer and thicker to accommodate the largest diameter holes in the pegbox of your instrument. Please check the diameter of the holes of the pegbox of your instrument or consult your luthier before ordering. We are available to answer any questions for you and your luthier.
Sizes: All shaft diameters are measured immediately under the ring collar. Violin (8.6mm), Viola (9.6mm), and Cello (14mm)
Wood Varieties: Mountain Mahogany, Boxwood, Katalox, Southern Live Oak
Sustainability: These wood species are not listed in the CITES Appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
Please allow up to four weeks lead time for all new orders.
