Would you be so kind, sir, to give us an update concerning your new tuning pegs?  I am especially interested in any change in the sound and any concerns about added weight?  or anything else you would be willing to share?

@MrYikes

Sorry for the slow reply. Have just had some surgery that went a bit 'wrong'.

I like them. There are no weight concerns. No noticeable change that way.

They do seem to have made my violin 'louder' and I am assuming that is because of the lack of fine tuners on the tailpiece.

I would recommend them.

Seen it all. Done it all. Can't remember most of dunno ..... What was I saying???? facepalm

Sorry to hear about the surgery John.  Hope it turns out well.
