Heart Peg Set
Pickup currently unavailable
Hellweg & Cloutier's "Heart" model classical instrument peg set for violin, viola, and cello. Set includes four (4) pegs. Produced in small batches.
The pictures depict the pegs in Honduran Rosewood (Limited Edition), and black 3D renderings of the pegs.
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.
Limited Edition Wood Variety: We now offer a limited quantity of Honduran Rosewood as a wood option. This wood was rescued from being sent to the dump and turned into mulch in Florida after Hurricane Ian. All Dalbergia species including Honduran Rosewood are listed under the genus-wide restriction in CITES appendix II — which also includes finished products made of the wood (finished items under 10 kilograms are exempted). We currently only ship Rosewood products currently within the USA. Contact us if you require additional information.
