I had been using just one other kind of peg dope for too long, and consequently ordered and received a dependable Hill product that has worked very well. I also purchased some rubbing alcohol at a local drugstore to remove excess rosin from my strings on a regular basis. The combination has made it much easier to hear the perfect fifths needed to carefully tune and play a beautiful violin with pleasure. Both accessories have been very useful.

The Hill compound works perfectly, and lasts for years on properly fitted pegs. A bit expensive, but one tube will suffice for the rest of your life unless you use it up fixing all of your student's pegs. A warning: use other "off brand" peg compounds at your own risk. They will often leave you worse off than when you started. Hill is the professional luthier's choice.

Hello Alice! Peg compound is used to lubricate pegs that are sticking and won't turn. If you are having an issue with your pegs slipping, I would recommend trying peg drops. Pegs typically start slipping in colder weather because the wood shrinks and contracts in the pegbox. Just a drop of this solution will hydrate the wood and allow the peg to expand in the pegbox, solving your slipping issue. I hope this helps!
