This special peg paste from W. E. Hill & Sons is a composition to ease sticking pegs.

Hill’s Peg Paste has been the industry-standard solution to sticking pegs on bowed instruments for decades and has now returned to a historic look and feel with rebranded traditional packaging featuring a stylish tin and foil design - reducing the use of single-use plastic packaging used on the previous plastic twist dispenser.

To Apply

Once the tuning peg is removed from the scroll and cleaned, remove peg paste from tube, peel back foil as required. Apply the peg paste sparingly to the length of the tuning peg - a small amount goes a long way.

Reinsert the pegs into the pegbox, tuning them gently as you push them in, to evenly distribute the peg paste inside the peg holes. Turn each peg slowly to ensure that they move smoothly without sticking. If necessary, you can adjust the amount of paste or wipe off any excess.

In 2023 the decision was taken by the W. E. Hill & Sons company to return to the historic aluminium tube container: a form with which instrument luthiers and repairers are already very familiar. It is worth noting that the quantity of Peg Paste contained within the new packaging has not changed.
