Not exactly true. There is not a split in the violin business over wood vs. mechanical pegs that is two large factions. I was trained in the violin/cello world as a player and repairer. The mechanical pegs are a great innovation, but the players are still even more conservative than classical guitarists in that they predominantly choose wood pegs. I studied the cello first as a teenager and had instruments with wood pegs, when I saw flamenco guitars with wood pegs it seemed natural to me to buy one. I'm obviously in the minority as a consumer.Philipp Lerche wrote: ↑Thu Jul 27, 2017 5:39 amI asked exactly the thing but reversed and about different instruments: why not using mechanical tuners
Take a look at bow instrument players that are hugely split into two fractions.
One is taking the traditional approach on pegs and the other is focused on modern development and is using fine tuners etc.
